“Dunkirk” opens as hundreds of thousands of British and Allied troops are surrounded by enemy forces. Trapped on the beach with their backs to the sea they face an impossible situation as the enemy closes in.
Not what I expected
It honestly hurts me to give a Nolan film only 3 stars. I absolutely adore his movies and I was very excited to see his latest work: Dunkirk. However as I watched the movie, I became increasingly disappointed. Now I did go in with high expectations but not for a high action, horrific display of war. However I did go in expecting some sort of jarring, or influential and reflective display of humanity, that was crafted into a mastery of writing and directing. However I didnt really get that. Honestly what Dunkirk is really is an amazing effort to give us a window into a moment of that historic time. There are no key characters, or development of them. There is no buildup or climax. Now I’m not saying this was a bad thing to do and for many I can honestly believe why this might appeal to you. But for me its not what Ive come to expect in a Nolan film and sadly didnt quite enjoy it as much as others. I’m not trying to say that I dont revere soldiers or their sacrifice or even history itself. But when I go to the movies I want to be entertained and leave pondering the things Ive watched. Here I just felt I had watched a special on the history channel (that had an enormous budget).

C’est vraiment trop nul, mou, lent et chiant à mourir...
Greatest movie I ever seen bod
I can see why
I can see why some viewer did not like this move. Not your average war film. I liked it. Took me a while before I relized there were three different time lines. It is a personal journey story of the individuals involved. Not a war action movie.

This movie is shot aboslutely amazingly. The viewer gets sucked in easy and it is my favorite movie ever. Not only is the craft of it great so is the theme. I saw time and time again the movie showing us the idea of the soldiers we sent out were only boys. You see the characters doing whatever it takes to survive and I gotta say this movie is worth your time.
Amazing original film

Dunkirk is so good! best movie ever!! Harry Styles and Fionn Whitehead are such amazing people OMG ♥️
Barely any action on this movie,
Great movie, it didn’t disappoint
The cinematography is just awesome, the story telling is very different and it leaves a lasting impact, very original. The sounds are just phenomenal and fits very well, it gives me chills honestly very suspenseful and thrilling. The actors did good too, fresh new faces but great talents, Fionn Whitehead is an awesome actor he definitely deserved to be the lead actor, Aneurin Barnard acts with his facial expressions and he has nailed it, Barry Keoghan made me cry and oh boy Harry Styles is surprisingly good at his character. DEFO 5 stars, it’s just a great and suspenseful it’s unlike other typical war movies. Nolan’s very creative I am loss at words great director.
