World War II. The enemy forces have cornered four hundred thousand British and French soldiers on the French coast at Dunkirk. A small number of primarily-French soldiers are guarding the perimeter, where the British and French soldiers are amassed, which is getting increasingly smaller as enemy forces advance. Most of those British and French soldiers are now on the beach waiting for destroyers to come and take them back to Britain. Each of the countries are taking care of their own. The British are leaving first and among those the wounded get first priority despite their taking up seven times the space of the able-bodied soldiers. An issue with Dunkirk is that there is only one dock the destroyers can access, which needs to be protected from the enemy bombs. As such, Churchill, newly elected, has put out a call for civilian watercraft to head to Dunkirk both to transport supplies and to transport soldiers from the beach to the destroyers or back to Britain if at all possible. Within this situation, four general stories are told. In one, Commander Bolton, the top British Naval officer on the ground, knows deep in his heart that the soldiers are largely sitting ducks on the beach as the enemy planes fly over. He knows that the situation is a catch-22 for the British in that they need to bring as many soldiers safely home as possible at the depletion of their military resources, which in turn they need to preserve for the day if, but more likely when, the enemies make their way onto British soil. In the second story, a squadron of three Royal Air Force Spitfires are amongst those limited air resources that are embarking in dog fights with enemy planes, while protecting the soldiers on the ground. In the process, they have to ensure their own safety in order to provide what is needed for the ground soldiers, which includes knowing about things like fuel levels and having enough to make their way back to home base whenever required. In the third story, two soldiers meet on the beach, the two of them knowing that the longer they remain on the beach, the likelier they are not to survive this skirmish. As such, they try to do whatever they need to to make it onto one of those destroyers or any other watercraft making its way back to Britain. However, making it aboard a ship does not necessarily ensure their survival, and in the final story, Mr. Dawson, his young-adult son Peter, and their seventeen-year-old friend George are on Dawson's pleasure craft making its way to Dunkirk to do their part in the war effort, all realizing the dangers involved. They have to decide at each step along the way if they will focus on personal problems or if they will continue on to assist in the war, as was their first priority when they left Britain.

I watched this movie with a lot of expectations. The movie was based on the book of the same name by Nick Nolte, but I was not too familiar with it. And I don't think I'm the only one that feels that way. So, when I saw this movie I was expecting it to be a classic that would become a classic. I was wrong. The movie was a bit too long for me. It just dragged on and on, but I understand that this was the point. It just felt like I was watching a documentary, and that's not what I wanted to see. The movie was definitely a lot of fun. I thought it was very entertaining. I think the main thing that I liked about the movie was the soundtrack. It was very well done, especially the scenes where it was loud. I also liked the costumes, the accents, and the way they portrayed the war. It was very authentic. There were a few things that I didn't like, though. The movie was very slow. There was a lot of talking going on, and it was very dull. I also felt like the movie was way too long. It was like the movie dragged on forever. I also think that the movie was too long. I think that if they had cut out a couple of scenes and put them in the movie it would have been much better. The movie was good, but it was not great. It was a good movie, but not a great movie. I think that if you are a fan of the book you will definitely enjoy it. I think that the movie is very good, but it is not a classic.

I've always been a huge fan of WW2 movies, and this one was one of my favorites. It was a great action movie, with a good story and a very good cast. It had everything you want from a WW2 movie. The acting was great, the sound was great, the special effects were great. It was an amazing movie that is very entertaining. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.

I am a huge fan of Nolan, and this film was one of the best I've ever seen. It was an incredible story of survival, and it's one that I can't wait to see in the future. Great story, and great action, from start to finish. I have no idea why the critics didn't like this movie, and I can see why they did. The whole movie is shot in black and white, and that is really the only thing that kept me from turning it off. I thought the story was great, and Nolan did an amazing job directing. The story was great, and the only thing that could've been better is the music. The music was really good, but I think that they could've used a little more in it. Overall, a great film, and I hope it does well in the box office.

With so much talk about the "messages" and "messages" in this film I felt compelled to write a review. But I don't think it's a "message" film. It's a very well made film and I found it to be extremely entertaining. But it is not a movie that you will want to watch again. It is very different from the book. And I think that is the point. It's not trying to recreate the book. It's trying to create a different version of the book that the audience can enjoy. It's a good film, but it is not one that I would watch again.
