“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.
The most beautiful WW2 movie I have ever seen.
A pressure cooker of a movie
If you love overwhelming tension, this might either be your favorite film of all time.
An All Time Favorite
Not only a great war film, but an amazingly dramatic and intense telling of one of England’s finest moments. The last scene and closing seconds of the film are probably my favorite ever in a Noland film.
Another Nolan Masterpiece
By Si J
A stark and harrow look at the Dunkirk evacuations, from the greatest film maker of his generation.
The true best movie of 2017
This movie can be compared to saving private Ryan. It looks so real and is a true masterpiece. This is a must watch

Sleeping through Dunkirk
I’m a World War II history fanatic and watch every movie related to that era (including the sanitized versions of Hollywood’s depictions of WWII - excuse me, but no blood?). Four of my uncles and my father fought in that horrible war in every branch except the Air Force.
So what did I expect in Dunkirk? Not this. It wasn’t interesting, bored me to tears, and didn’t depict the real horror of that crisis. Interestingly, my children and their partners loved it and thought it fascinating and sad at the same time.
All I know is that I’ll never watch it again (even though I should because I fell asleep 30 minutes into it something that has never happened to me in a theater or at home. And we saw it in an IMAX theater no less.)
My vote is still don’t bother watching this if you’re over 60. The 20, 30, and 40 somethings may enjoy it more. We’re coming from a different perspective in history.
BEST MOVIE EVER
By Risked insuring coiffured
The director gets You to care for the characters without even giving you the names and just using the storylines and making it all very involved it also pans over different perspectives of the same scenes multiple times which was very cool
The Score... Amazing
Hans Zimmer with his amazing score for Dunkirk and the suspense it gives you, you can’t stop watching it.
Just Didn't Do It
This movie just didn't do it for me unfortunately. I enjoy watching WW2 era films but the continuity (if thats the correct term) in this one was terrible. From using a 1950's French destroyer to modern trains, spitfires with an unlimited amunition supply, no engine when on fire and modern container cranes. I realise that it is supposed to have been over days but it goes from night to day in alternate scenes. Some good performances by actors but for the rest I didn't like it.
