Goofs

The standard ammunition load for a British Fighter in early World War 2 was the Caliber .303 round with eight (*) wing mounted machine guns. The rounds were in arranged with ball, tracer, incendiary, and armor piercing projectiles in-dispersed in the ammunition loading. Of special note was the B4/B4Z incendiary round that had soldered holes (over a phosphorus core) in the projectile that when fired melted from the friction of the projectile leaving the barrel which left a visible smoke trail as the bullet flew through the air. This is evident in the actual combat footage used in earlier films ("Battle of Britain") involving Spitifres or Hurricanes where British aircraft fired their machine guns, a line of spiraling smoke trails reach out towards their target. This type of ammunition was an aid to marksmanship. Later in the war the British moved to use tracer ammunition which leaves a bright colored trace in the air. See more »

Alternate Versions

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 »

Very interesting movie.
12 May 2018 | by Imme-van-GorpSee all my reviews

Dunkirk is a war movie that shows three different storylines that sort of come together at the end. Every storyline follows a certain individual in a certain situation. This makes it so that you can really see what happens during an event like this for multiple different kinds of people. It brings you closer to what's happening instead of a main character or something.

The first storyline is on land and is mostly played by Fionn Whitehead, Harry Styles and Aneurin Barnard. It follows an inexperienced soldier (Whitehead) who is just trying to find a way out of Dunkirk, just like every other soldier at the beach. He then picks up two soldiers (Styles and Barnard) along the way who he stays with for the rest of the journey. I think the best thing about this storyline was the constant fear you felt for what could happen. Something I found really good was the chemistry between Whitehead and Styles, I think the best parts from this storyline were whenever Styles got on screen.

The second storyline is in the sky and is mostly played by Tom Hardy and Jack Lowden. It follows two pilots, who sort of witness all the horrible events from above, while trying to help as much as they can. I think I least enjoyed this storyline out of the three of them, because it felt very unpersonal and I wasn't really impressed by anything that happened during these parts. The best thing about this storyline must be Tom Hardy, since his acting was, as always, on par.

The third storyline is at sea and is mostly played by Mark Rylance, Barry Keoghan and Tom Glynn-Carney. It follows a man, a son and a young assistant going off to sea to try and save some of the men stuck at Dunkirk. I was very impressed with Glynn-Carney's acting during his parts and I very much enjoyed it. I think this has to be the most emotional storyline, because you get closest to these three characters out of the whole film, but one might argue that it is also the most boring storyline, because there isn't that much fear that anything will happen to them.

7/10. -Imme van Gorp
