“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.

This is so far the most boring film Ive ever seen !
utterly rubbish, no special effects whatsoever
has no start or end.A film? made by amateur /students.The music(which one?) that continuous noise pierced my ears badly now I got tinnitus ,repeated airplane scenes or takes
and the quality of the sound was so bad I had to keep regulating adjusting the Vol at all times
All in all a waste in every single corner.
Biggest disappointment of the decade
By I bet this nicname's taken too
I so wanted this to be a true tribute to those who were involved in the evacuation. They deserve so much better. Tiny cast of wooden actors, including Brannagh, poorly attempting to pretend there are over 300,000 of them…more like 300 (where’s CGI when you need it). Obviously some good bits but way too few to warrant the huge price. If I could get a refund I would and I look forward to our servicemen being better served in the future.
Superb - best film of 2017
What a waste of time and money ! 3 planes in the all money, 3 boats, no action, pretty boring !
My favourite film of all time
By Kelpie west
Just sooo good
It would be unfair to give this less than four stars as the direction and acting were pretty good.
Having said that, why were hundreds of soldiers all perfectly clean-shaven after being stranded for days on end on the beach at Dunkirk?
"Now listen, men. There is something more important than being rescued from this living nightmare - shaving!"
Even as the story progressed, not even one of the soldier-luvvies on the returning boats even sported a "five o' clock shadow".
Perhaps the unshaved soldiers were left behind: "Sorry, sarge, I'd love to return to England with you, but my new Braun razor hasn't finished charging yet so please leave without me."
More Glossy Type Hollywood Trash
Utter Rubbish. As an actor and director with a taste in many types of films i can state that this is the same old crap generic war movie. It is insults the facts of history, crap casting, lack of feeling, to well...i cant be bothered to waste any more time on it.
What a waste of time. Wife and I got bored by this over the top style over substance movie. Totally unengrossing, lost interest. A few great shots but no empathy for any of the characters. Beach scenes were underpopulated to say the least (watch Atonement for how it should be done) . Total Dross.
This is a good film, in fact I'd go so far as to suggest it is excellent. Worthwhile watching this in 4k with a decent surround sound system (especially the sub) as the film's dramatic tension rises and falls. It's not perfect though, my main issue being the lack of direction for the many extras. Quite a few look very lost and unsure what they are supposed to be doing in a particular scene. Otherwise well worth watching.
The acting and characters are brilliant but I found the movie to start to be boring after a while. Might watch it a second time to change that.
