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.

To begin, I really enjoyed the film. I went to see it with my girlfriend who is also a war movie fan, and we both really enjoyed it. I had read some of the reviews before I went, and was concerned that it was going to be a bad movie, and I was not disappointed. The film had a strong story, great acting, and a great score. The acting was really good, especially from the two leads. The story is great, and the pacing was just right. The film really did not drag on and on, and the story was engaging enough to keep me engaged. The story was very well told, and the visuals were very well done. The film had a strong story, great actors, and a great score. This film is a must see for anyone who enjoys a good war film. It's a great war movie, and I highly recommend it.

I don't know what to say about this movie. It's not the best movie I have ever seen but it's a great movie nonetheless. For the most part the story is about a war movie. There are a lot of battles and the movie is about a group of soldiers who are part of a war theater called the "Dunkirk". The movie is about how they get into the war theater. It has a few scenes of the Dunkirk itself but the story is much more about the war. I like the movie for it's realism. The Dunkirk is an excellent movie because it's not the typical war movie. There are many scenes that are realistic and realistic is something I like about this movie. If you want to watch a movie about war and have a good time watch the Dunkirk.

This movie was great. It had everything you would want in a war movie. Action, emotions, and a great story. I will be recommending it to my friends. I would like to see it again, but I think the movie was too long. The movie could have been shorter and it would have been better. The movie was a good movie, but it could have been better.

I have never been a fan of war movies, but I really enjoyed this one. I'm not a big fan of Tom Hardy. I can't really say what I like about him, but I can say that he's a very talented actor, and he was very convincing as a British man in the trenches. I think that this movie was a lot better than I expected, and that I would give it a 9 or a 10. There are some good shots, and a lot of interesting things about Dunkirk that I didn't see before, like the way that they were trying to capture the situation, or how they were dealing with it, or how they got there. I really liked the soundtracks and the way that they made you feel like you were in the trenches. There was one scene where they played music, and I really liked it. I didn't like the way that they were making us feel bad for the soldiers, and I thought that it wasn't really appropriate for the movie. I thought that the one thing that they could have done better was make us feel for the soldiers, because it wasn't really realistic, and that's one of the things that I didn't like about the movie. I also thought that the way that the soldiers were treated by the Germans was just really wrong. I thought that the way that they treated the soldiers was very sad, and I think that the way that they treated the soldiers was not right. Overall, I think that this movie was very good, but I think that I would give it a 9 or a 10.

If you liked the first film, you'll love this. The first half of the film is very slow and I thought it was a bit boring. But once the film gets going, it really gets going. The acting is very good. Tom Hardy is fantastic as always, and is a real powerhouse. He's very tough and powerful, and it's a real shame that he didn't get the Oscar nomination for this film, because he was excellent. The film is also very well directed. There are some really great scenes in the film, and the camera work is really well done. I loved the cinematography in this film, especially the first half of the film. I also really liked the film's score. I thought it was really good. I also think the film is a bit too long. It's definitely not a film to watch over and over again. It's a great film, but I wouldn't say it's a classic. It's a bit too long, and I didn't really enjoy the film. I think it's better than the first film, but not as good as the second film. I recommend watching this film. It's a really good film, but I wouldn't say it's a classic.

I will not go into the historical details of the movie, as I have not read the book. I will say that I was moved by it, and I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good war movie. I also recommend that you do not read the book first, as it will be difficult to follow the plot line. I was shocked to find that I had never heard of this movie until I was done watching it, and I am glad that I did not read the book first. I would like to say that the performances were fantastic. Tom Hardy was amazing as always, and I am not usually a fan of his. He was a true "heart-warmer" and he did not disappoint. There were a few scenes that were a little over the top, but I think that was because the actors were being so emotional. The movie was very long, but I felt like it was worth it. I do not think that you will be bored. It is an excellent movie, and I do not think that anyone can say that they did not like it. I highly recommend it to anyone who is a fan of war movies, or who has not read the book. I give it an 8/10.

For the first time, I saw a movie that was truly about the people and their struggle in WWII. I was very impressed. The acting was great and the story was also very believable. I have to admit that the characters were a bit one dimensional and a little over the top, but I think that is the way it was intended. The story was about the people who survived Dunkirk and how they made their way to England. I think that was the main theme of the movie. The Dunkirk evacuation was one of the most difficult things ever to do. The characters were realistic and I felt that they were really on the edge of their seats trying to get to England. I also thought the special effects were amazing. I thought they were really well done. The scenes where they were in the water and the explosions were very realistic. The sound was also very good. I really liked the sound. Overall, I think this movie was really good. I would recommend it to anyone who has not seen it yet. I think that it was very well done. I would also recommend that you watch the trailers before you go see the movie. I think that they will give you a better idea of what to expect.

I have been a fan of the book since it was first published and I read the screenplay a few weeks ago. I went to the movie with a critical eye and was pleasantly surprised. The action sequences are impressive, the character development is great and the plot is well thought out. As a film, it was a very well put together piece. The actors did an excellent job, as did the director. The cinematography was also very good. The only thing that I would have done differently is to have had a bit more background on the characters. I didn't know how they ended up in Dunkirk before the movie and it took me a few moments to realize that they were not British and that they were French. I also thought the French accents were a bit annoying. It's not that I don't like accents but they were a bit over the top. All in all, it was a great movie and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants a good movie to watch.

I saw the film, with a few of my friends, and I was very impressed. The acting was excellent. The story was very well told. The battles were very well done. I was impressed by the fact that the film was not all about the war, but was about the people who fought in it. I would have liked to have seen more of the people who died, but I don't think that is what the film was about. I felt that the film was about the people who fought, and the war itself. I feel that the film could have been better, but I would have liked to have seen more of the people who fought. I also felt that the film could have been better. It is a very good film, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes war films. I have seen the film three times, and I am looking forward to seeing it again. I am very impressed by the film, and I would recommend it to anyone.

I've seen many war movies and this is the best one I have seen. It had a lot of action, action scenes were good and the story was really good. The film doesn't have a lot of plot, but it has a lot of action. The acting was really good. Some of the characters were not very good. The only character I didn't like was the German soldier, he was not very good. He was a bit too militaristic. The whole cast did an awesome job, it was really good. I loved the film, it's a really good movie. If you are a war movie fan or just like action movies then I recommend you to see it.

I've been a fan of Mark Rylance since I first saw his work in the brilliant "The Fifth Element" and "The World's End". He's just perfect for the role of the Captain of the HMS Dauntless. This movie is a great example of what modern day war movies should be like. The war scenes are realistic and the story is compelling. The acting is superb, the direction is flawless and the movie is definitely worth seeing. Definitely a must see for all fans of war movies and the likes of "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" and "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers".

The best movie I've seen this year, Dunkirk. A wonderful story, great acting, and a truly emotional movie. It was great to see many of the characters from the books and to see how they were portrayed in a real time. I would recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a great story and/or is a fan of the books. I am not a fan of the book and the movie, but I think the movie will please both audiences. I also think the cast did an excellent job, and I am looking forward to seeing more movies by this cast.

I think I am the only person in the world who likes this movie, and I'm not even an enthusiast of the genre. I like to watch war movies and this is definitely one of my favorites.

The story was good, the characters were good, and the movie was well-made. I would say this is one of the better war movies I've ever seen. It was well-made, and I think it's definitely worth watching. It's a good movie, and I think it's worth watching.

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.
