A good movie

I already saw this movie but since it was a while ago, I was quite eager to check it out again. In fact, the first and last time I actually saw this one was in the movie theater when it was released with my father. Anyway, it’s a shame that, in the last 20 years, Peter Weir has released only 2 movies and, since the guy is already more than 70 years old, he won’t make many more movies, I’m afraid. Personally, I’m a huge fan of ‘The Truman Show’ and, after 5 long years, I was really eager to see Peter Weir’s next directing effort. On top of that, before this movie was released, there was a pretty good buzz about it and it was even nominated for the Best Picture Academy award so it looked quite promising. Wel, to be honest, the first time, I saw it didn't really blew me away. However, with this rewatch, even though I still didn't think it was a masterpiece, this time, I was actually rather impressed by how well made the whole thing was. Indeed, it is not very often that you get to see a movie dealing with vintage naval battles and the work done to deliver something seemingly realistic and historically accurate was quite impressive. Eventually, the main issue with this movie was that, even though it looked pretty awesome and it was failry entertaining, it was never really spellbinding though. Anyway, to conclude, even though it never really blew me away, it was still a decent watch and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
