In the near future, a weary Logan cares for an ailing Professor X, somewhere on the Mexican border. However, Logan's attempts to hide from the world, and his legacy, are upended when a young mutant arrives, pursued by dark forces.
Evacuation of Allied soldiers from the British Empire, and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 26- June 04, 1940, during Battle of France in World War II.Written by
Toward the end of the film, the film's composer, Hans Zimmer, wrote a drawn out, extended version of Edward Elgar's "Nimrod" of the "Enigma Variations." Elgar is an English composer who had composed the well know "Pomp and Circumstance" theme song that is used during graduation ceremonies. The Nimrod is meant to musically express a tremendous victory over an unspeakable tragedy, which is fitting for the movie, since Dunkirk was a disaster, and yet it's strategic retreat would turn the tide of World War II. Elgar's piece was also chosen by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra shortly after the September 11 attacks. See more »
The film shows very few vehicles, when the British Expeditionary Force was one of the first armies to be fully mechanised. The BEF lost around 600 tanks, 64,000 vehicles and 20,000 motorbikes, many of which would have been in Dunkirk. See more »

Is this a scam, or has the capacity to be critical been lost due to the very sensitive and emotional subject of the film. For me, it seems like a joke... How could this momentous and dramatic event in our recent history be presented with so little means and ambition ? From books and historical reports, the boarding was a mess, planes were all over the sky, there were myriads of boats and ships, the beach were left with tons of discarded equipment and weapons... We see none of that. How can you give an idea of what it must have been with only a few sparking clean vintage planes, one small war ship, 12 period fishing or leisure boats... How could so many shots taken on site incorporate 1960's, 70's or even 80's buildings, street furniture, modern container cranes... How can it be night for the scenes at sea, and day for what happens on the beach, in Dover, or in the air at the same time ? How long can a spitfire fly after it has run out of petrol, and still manage to fight... For those who like history, it is a waste of time. For those who like action and war scenes, it can be watched but will be a disappointment For those who seek emotions and a peek at humans behaviour during the event, there is reasonably good acting, in a good British drama tradition. I suggest to wait for one year and watch it on TV where this show belongs.
