The story of the miraculous evacuation of Allied soldiers from Belgium, Britain, Canada and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbour of Dunkirk between May 26th and June 4th 1940 during World War II.
Highly Overrated But Still Good
Excellent but underrated film
It is neither dumb nor smart enough to be fun, and spends way too much time with its boring human characters.
If you like war films, never watch this film. This is film is nothing. No worth to watch. It's like a documentary, but very bad documentary. Don't waste your time and money. I like Nolan's movies but not this one. Very Disappointed Overrated movie.
As a follower of Christopher Nolan, like many others, I was extremely excited about this Movie. The first 1 to 2 minutes did not disappoint. With the tense music and quick pace in taking the movie to Dunkirk beach I knew I was in for a real treat. After around 2 minutes I was confused and trying not to lose focus. About half way through I thought I had missed bits. By the end I knew I didn't get the treat I expected and like most reviewers I cannot understand how it got rated so highly. For me, definitely Nolan's worse film by a long way.
If the events were true, I would like to brand the dumb spitfire pilot a real DUMBO. Even if you ran out of fuel, you could turn the plane towards the same people who were escaping and ditch the plane there. He thought it heroic to be a self sacrificial dick head to get caught by Nazi's instead. Real DUMB brit. And the other lot who were in the boat and were being shot at and refuse to come out, even when sinking. Jeezzz... SHOOT THE DIRECTOR of the film, I say!
Really loved the sound effects - the planes, the sea, the bullets pinging past. The rest was utter dross. Baffled by the rave reviews, 2018 is a new record low for standards.
