Saw it last weekend. The cinematography and acting are all fantastic. There is very little dialogue, as I read that Nolan wanted the events to tell the story themselves. The problem is that the score, while wonderful, is so loud, I could barely hear what little dialogue there was. Maybe it was just the theater I saw it at. The story is also told in a somewhat non-linear fashion, and while it eventually pieces together, it still left me slightly confused. There is also almost no historical context, so if you're taking your kids, give them the background on the significance first. It also seemed like a whole lot of chaos that suddenly goes to peaceful ending. It's worth it to see in the theater for the cinematography, sound, and acting, but I was left feeling like I just wanted more from it.

Hitler was still hoping to avert full war with England. He actually liked the English and hoped that by not attacking the British Army at Dunkirk he would win points with the British Government and work out a peaceful settlement. Churchill would accept nothing less than the complete destruction of Nazi Germany. The rest is history

Absolutely worth paying extra for IMAX for this one.


Good to read. I've been looking forward to this one

The trailers look terrific, so I've been very hopeful.

I'm glad, as the writer says, that Nolan eschews "war porn". If there's anything I can't stand it's a war movie that's made like a superhero movie. Show the horror but can the slow motion crap and all that. And doubly good to hear about a war movie by a guy who makes superhero movies.
