Critic Reviews for Admiral (Michiel de Ruyter)

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (2)

  • There's barely enough time to develop De Ruyter as a character in his own movie, or even successfully explain his war strategies.

  • For all the elements that don't mesh naturally, "Admiral" still manages to be intermittently engaging and fitfully exciting.

    Mar 12, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • Frank Lammers gives a surprisingly understated performance as Michiel de Ruyter. Though he has his moments of fury and agony, his usual countenance is one of weariness and concealment.

    Feb 26, 2016 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…
  • The dialog talks down a little to the viewers who are intended in large part to be school students, but it pays the viewer back in thrilling visual images.

    Feb 16, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…
  • Perfunctory historical Dutch bio-pic benefiting from epic scale and impressive lead performances.

    Feb 2, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
