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
Even though he received top billing, Tom Hardy's face is only seen for a few moments. He spends most of the movie behind his oxygen mask and goggles flying and fighting in his Spitfire. See more »
The beach section of the movie takes place over a week, whereas the air section of the movie takes place over an hour. The craters shown earlier on the beach would have been filled in by sand when the tide came in over the days leading up to the pilot having to land his spitfire, so it wouldn't necessarily still have the craters when this scene happened.

In Spain, the film was projected on 2.35:1 screens in the 2.20:1 aspect ratio. But the film was finally projected with black bars on the four sides of the screen. This same situation happened with Jurassic World and just before the film started a text appeared on the screen explaining the 2.00:1 aspect ratio fitting on the 2.35:1 screen adding black bars up an down. Dunkirk didn't show any explanation before the film. See more »
Dunkirk is one of the most visually stunning films of 2017 and one of the most realistic depictions of tragic events shown on cinema.
One would think that without any proper characterization or backstories of any of the characters Dunkirk would present itself as a dull excuse for endless action but it's the exact opposite. The characters are shown to us in a way in which we understand them and their purpose by only glancing at them which is one of the best aspects of Dunkirk. However, it is also one of the worst. The only minor issue with Dunkirk I have is that the actors aren't given much to do which the production quality easily outweighs. With a 104-minute runtime Dunkirk perfectly balances two stories and lots of action and unlike films with twice the runtime it doesn't drag for a second. Dunkirk is also one of the best sounding films in the last few years and rightfully so earned itself Oscars in both sound mixing and editing as well as film editing.
Dunkirk manages the be entertaining and emotional with little to no characterisation and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a compelling story or just some good action.
Final Score: 9/10
