I thought it was great. Nice music, perfect cast, outstanding visuals, believable action. I don't know how historically accurate are the ships, the guns etc., but they looked convincing enough. I'm happy with this movie. I only wanted to see some sea battles and I got way much more.
Plot is a bit thin, it's a bit long but it is visually stunning and enjoyable to watch due to the likable characters and great performances.
A fascinating movie that captures themes such as pride, cowardice, morality of war and friendship. The historically accurate naval battles are the icing on the cake.
