Two faiths, two empires, two rulers – colliding in 1588. Papist Spain wants to bring down the heretic Elizabeth. Philip is building an armada but needs a rationale to attack. With covert intrigue, Spain sets a trap for the Queen and her principal secretary, Walsingham, using as a pawn Elizabeth’s cousin Mary Stuart, who’s under house arrest in the North. The trap springs, and the armada sets sail, to rendezvous with French ground forces and to attack. During these months, the Virgin Queen falls in love with Walter Raleigh, keeping him close to court and away from the sea and America. Is treachery or heroism at his heart? Does loneliness await her passionate majesty?

Film Review

first – i loved blanchetts acting in this movie, it's great i have not watched the first movie yet, but i surely will after this one this is a historical movie with very well created mood, a nice cast and very good acting my general interest for history (but must admit i have not read much about this particular period of English history yet) has certainly added a point in favor of this movie 🙂 i also loved the fact that this movie shows us the good ones using torture to gain their informations, which was surely historically correct too many movies try to show us perfection where there were just human beings as us …the constant praying and all the priest running around are right for that period of history too, for sure Robert Fisk has complained about this movie delivering a wrong/eased quote of Elizabeth when she stands before her troops, but since i didn't learn about this in history and since i really liked this movie i couldn't see his problem this movie also show…

This sequel to 'Elizabeth' is really two movies in one. The first focuses on court intrigue and assassination plots against Queen Elizabeth. The second is the Spanish Armada and how England faces up to the challenge.While the first segment is reasonably engrossing despite being convoluted, the second feels rushed. The Spanish invasion probably deserved a movie of its own. Cate Blanchett is decent in the lead but doesn't come close to her nuanced performance in 'Elizabeth'. Her emotional entanglements occasionally annoy. Samantha Morton is excellent in a brief appearance. Geoffrey Rush and Clive Owen are adequate. Watchable but weaker than the first film.Overall 6/10

You could do a lot worse then this. For starters, it looks absolutely magnificent. Just take those scenes of the armada. Friggin Oilpaintings. It got a great cast and i find it relatively engaging with an "open" story that throws different threads at you. Its true that its flawed. Its like the director isn't really sure what part of Elizabeth or her history he wants to explore, so it comes across as a little confused. Personally i found the triangle drama rather interesting, not the love aspects of it, so much, but the parts where the Queen lives through her servant (see, the dance scene, for instance). Its most glaring flaw is probably the bad charachstions of the Spanish king and his followers , but really, its not in the forgreound, and you have seen much worse.
