    This movie was great! Tom Hardy always gives 110%. Yes, it can be a bit slow in spots, but this is a true story. People who don't know the history, back story leading up to Dunkirk will most likely not understand what's going on, and probably won't appreciate how good this film really is.

    Put yourself in any one of those situations and imagine the anxiety and terror. This movie is the closest you will ever want to get to being desperate, afraid and alone. I saw this movie in IMAX and it was so moving and so real and so horrible. At the same time Dunkirk was such an amazing victory from total defeat. See this movie and imagine you are there!

    The only complaint I have about the movie is that if you're not familiar with the start of WWII, or know how the Germans were able to cut off the Allied forces, then you will have no idea what's going on in the movie. The forces retreated to Dunkirk, were surrounded by advancing German forces, and cut off by the sea. This is a great movie if you take 10 minutes to review youtube videos on the subject before going. Harry Styles role could have been performed by a turnip.

    The story was great but the movie was phony. At least a half dozen last second life saving moments. The background music was terrible. Just listen to it and you will surely agree. This is the worst musical score that I have evr heard. I expected so much more from this movie. Save your money stay home. I even hung around to see if there were any redeaming bloopers to see. There were none.

    To all the people that didn't understand and to the one guy that fell asleep. If your old enough to know a veteran from WWII ask him or her if they didn't understand war or were bored ,fell asleep on a beach or field in France under fire. If you don't understand, stay at home and hide under your bed when the next war starts.. Or call in a Super Hero.

    Did not depict hundreds of boats to rescue..should have had more personal real stories of rescuers to stranded British and French troops!

    One of the best films of the year-definitely Oscar material. The amazing part is that there was little CGI in play. The sinking of the vessels was well done plus Hans Zimmer's score was riveting.

    This seems to be half documentary/half movie. Not much acting. The first 45 minutes there is little talking at all. Just enough so you know what's going on. Some moments of bravery but you really need to be a history or military buff to enjoy this movie.

    Love watching historical movies, especially war movies. This movie was a real let down for me. It had some cool bomb scenes, spitfire scenes, ship sinking scenes, and the movies sound was good. BUT it was all layed out in boring mis aligned plot with poor character development. Probably 80% of the movies footage is nothing but looking at British peoples faces looking at other British people and not saying more than one sentence.
