I saw the movie a while back on Netflix or one of the other streaming networks. It had some good historical scenes, but other things that were just nuts, like de Ruyter personally boarding an enemy ship by swinging across on a rope like Errol Flynn! As an admiral of the fleet!

The cg battle scenes combined 17th century ship’s with late 18th century period ships all mixed together.

You’d think that for a big budget production they could get all these little details right. Although most people wouldn’t notice.
