Goofs

The "little ship," the Moonstone, and its crew - including George Mills, 17 - is openly based at Weymouth, Dorset. They return to Dorset, passing the white cliffs. George Mills is from Dorset. Yet, the local newspaper - the "Weymouth Gazette" - has a front page tribute to George Mills that states he is "from Ramsgate." The seaside town of Ramsgate is in Kent, near Dover, about 150 miles east of Weymouth. See more »

Not what I expected
1 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I can't understand how it can get 8.4 rating. Technically great, I mean, high level images and direction. But: first of all, why would Nolan add the past and future in all of his movies? I didn't find any empathy, emotions, with respect to other war movies. The final reminds me of the usual war movies made in US. And two actors as Tom Hardy and Cillian Murphy, almost not showing at all. I acknowledge Inception and Interstellar are great movies, although not 'my type', but this is not a great movie as they said.
