    This film missed the most significant aspect of the Dunkirk evacuation: the mobilization by ordinary Englishman of everything that could float in order to get the troops off the beach. Some attempt was made at this in the film, but it was by no means the most important. In fact, I'm not sure what was important in this film.

    Who are these grandpas that can't hear or understand what was going on? I brought my actual grandpa and he heard everything fine. Mix in some history and less Tinder

    All I could think of, after the movie had ended, was what happened to all the small craft? If you watch the movie there were no more than 20 of them. Young people leaving the theatre were repeating the same statement "what's the big deal?". To get a better idea of what I'm talking about, I suggest viewing the Academy award winning film Mrs. Miniver . This story is about the rescue 330,000 men. Do the math, can you imagine how many leisure crafts that takes. well then it seems someone is unable to.

    Strange - looks like our educational system has failed us miserably; anyone who gave this movie a one star must have failed history; this was one of the most important moments of WWII - even in failure, the Allies went on to destroy Hitler & his band of thugs .......

    People do not understand that what the Allied forces learned from this mistake went on to D - Day victory & the annihilation of the Nazis! Great movie ......

    My family and I couldn't understand the words and worse, the movie switched wildly around with no cohesive context. In addition, the soundtrack was far too loud and not adjusted for speech level of the actors. Every time something was said by the actors the soundtrack remained at unedited loud levels and played over the speech audio. My wife and I asked each other constantly,"what did he say? " This is the worst job of editing a movie I have ever seen. We finally walked out on it because it was an unpleasant "battle" to interpret the story line.

    You EITHER..loved it or hated it..based on reviews ..hmmm I was in between ..you absolutely have to read up on the History ..before you go or you will be lost as I was..An Amazing Miracle!! But very little explanation of how the really rescued these 400000.men..the main characters i thought were not developed..hard to UNDERSTAND..it went back and forth between plots..imax was nice but loud FOR me it lacked Cohesiveness ..there was no flow..historically I guess good..but it lacked .Content...

    From what I have read, it is very realistic. I definitely thought it was an interesting cinematic experience.
