Genre: War, Drama, Action, History
I have never watched the original Dunkirk so I am unsure how close this version is to that movie and or real events. However, I found Christopher Nolan’s version to be fantastic 😀 ! I was captivated and enthralled from start to end 🙂 ! I loved the opening as it throws you straight into the drama and danger! There are big names in this movie such as Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy and of course Harry Styles. Harry Styles who played soldier Alex was actually pretty good and you forget who he is (being a singer and so on 😛 ) as the film continues. The big drama scenes such as being trapped in a sinking ship were all awesome and entertaining 🙂 . It keeps you on edge of your seat as you are unsure who will survive or how the situation will develop. There is a non-linear narrative because we are following more than one character. I personally loved this unique way of presenting the story of Dunkirk 😀 . I really liked how we saw the same scene multiple times from different perspectives, without it being predictable, cheesy or boring. It was subtle, flowed well and I quite enjoyed seeing where each “important” character was in relation to the drama. My favourite characters were Collins (Jack Lowden) and Tommy (Fionn Whitehead) 🙂 . There are some highly emotional moments and a sense of pride when the “ending” happens (when you watch you will know). This war film is certainly more of a survival suspenseful movie but it certainly worth the watch for anyone one who loves historical genres 🙂 . I even liked the sense of not everything finishing off well and that not everyone makes it home (I won’t say any more as I don’t want to spoil 😛 ). I certainly recommend this movie 😀 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 5 Stars out of 5!
