“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.
this is coming from a girl who can’t keep her attention on ANYTHING for more than an hour due to her ADD; this movie kept me on my toes the e n t i r e time. great work to Mr. Nolan and the crew. (bonus: it had my faves in it: Harry Fionn and Barry <3)
Future WAR movies will be modeled by Dunkirk
Many reviews I've read previously complained about the lack of character development in this movie, but I think it helped show the BIG Picture of what happened at Dunkirk. Spectacular special effects and the emotions of the soldiers displayed on screen kept me on the edge of my seat. Every scene I tried imagining myself in the character's shoes, which left me with a feeling of gratitude to be alive. My complaints in life are a small after-thought compared to what these individuals/soldiers in WWI had to endure. Best Picture of the year? It certainly is on the short list. Nolan is a genius and I never leave his movies disappointed...he pushed the envelope on this movie! The truth about this story was very much captured here and reflected much of the heroism that soldiers and citizens alike took action to care for others, regardless of the inequalities of survival. Like Saving Private Ryan, this is a movie that I'd love to see again and again. Buy it...you won't regret it!
Dull, Boring & Disappointing
If you are a WW2 buff, stay away from this movie, far far away. Comes across as low budget, lacking direction and script. 400,000 were evacuated by sea? The movie was lucky to show 400, the beaches were mostly bare. The Germans? Never to be seen. Three British Spitfires made up the RAF, one flying without fuel and shooting down a German ME109 while it was gliding. CGI effects were very minimal. This movie was made for grade school kids, if you know anything about Dunkirk or WW2 in general, you will be disappointed. Waste of money and time.

The absolute most pointless and boring 45 minutes in my life. I had no idea what was even going on.
By Bruno Taut
Boring, overrated. No acting at all.
This movie just proves the more awards a movie gets, the worse the movie is.
What a truly crappy price of work this movie is.....save your money!
No stars horrible movie
Action nope talking yup not a very good movie that story was better left on the battle ground
Planes, beaches, music in the background
This movie was really boring, the music in the background made me hate it more. There are better wwII movies to watch than this, save your money and watch something else..
Simply breathtaking and amongst the year's best! Buy it as you will definitely rewatch and show all of your friends.
Fantastic movie and great cast as well. I absolutely loved it!!
