    This movie has very good special effects. It is also quite soulless with no real characters. WW2 is a very long time ago now. The story of Dunkirk is fading away with the generations. As a baby boomer I grew up with the story of Dunkirk. I am familiar with its outlines. I wonder how people of more recent generations will perceive this portrayal of it.

    Superb storytelling that uses time as a way to see the story from perspectives. Cinematography is stunning. Acting is quietly effective and at times Oscar caliber. Even the telling eyes of Tom Hardy are worth the price of admission. Nolan's best screenplay by far.

    Christopher Nolan has done an impressive job with this succinct movie depiction of what happened at Dunkirk. Nolan waited 10 years to make this movie. It shows how humanity is what wins wars, how the good in us all is what grabs your heart strings even when stuck in an impossible predicament where only a miracle can get you out. The stellar cast are impressive- amongst them: James D'Arcy, Tom Hardy, Kenneth Brannagh, Cillian Murphy, et al. The young heroes played by Fionn Whitehead, Aneurin Barnard, Adan Long and Jack Lowden as a pilot , Harry Stiles in his acting debut, and Barry Keoghan and all cast members involved play their roles well. In this conflict where the British, Canadian and Belgium troops were trapped on the beaches by the German forces, Nolan says what needs to be said in 106 minutes. The music resonates very strongly and impacts the action , pulls your heart strings and drives the message of what Nolan is trying to state as well as the imagery. No gore is needed. Only a homage to those who were involved. In the air, in the water and on the land. They remind me of my grandfather who served in the Second World War. The bravery of those who enlisted as well as those citizens who risked their lives to save them is what is at the core. What war is, how it affects us, and the inextinguishable human Spirit. Bravo Christopher Nolan.

    The reality of war was shown in this movie to a degree. The sound effects were intense at times which made it possible to feel & hear what the soldiers might have. The action scenes were good. However, it should have had an introduction in the beginning explaining the events that took place at Dunkirk - more than the 3 sentences they did show. Especially for those that were not familiar with it's history. My opinion is that I wouldn't say it was a great movie, but it was ok.
