I am not sure my nerves and stomach could take a feature length movie after watching those trailers. It certainly looks like it will be a well produced film.

Nolan has used real aircraft as much as possible. thank god.

the spitfires are real, the 109 is a lookalike. apart from a double chin it looks quite good.

and they have used large models for the crash scenes.

 

all in all, it should be worth a watch. real spitfires flying real vic's is always pretty

Dunkirk - the movie

 

surprised a thread hasn't been created re garding topic.

 

 

Watched the movie in IMAX around 3 weeks ago, and I must say I liked the film for what it is. It fits with Christopher Nolan's way of filming in that its more than a story, its an art form.IF you havent watched it, You should watch it in IMAX because the sound... The sound was amazing.

 

and my favourite part were also the Aerial Scenes taken from the Spitfire Pilots perspective, and i personally think that from the protagonists Tom Hardies, Pilot character's fate moved me the most.

 

tHOUGH Minor gripe i wish it showed the perspective of the BEF and or French forces left behind to stall the German military encroachment of Dunkrik. In the very begging the soldiers are running from German soldiers shooting and one makes it to a Sandbag blockade with French Soldiers and Shooting continues afterwards he gets to the beach ( can hear it in the background while he runs) and i wish we saw the additional perspective of group of soldiers these small blocking forces desperately fighting to hold off the Germans where it only for the briefest of periods touched on that..

 

I also think its fantastic that they showed the civilian perspective. OF local brits coming in to dunkirk with their own personal boats to help take soldiers back. the citizens came to the rescue and support of their service members.

 

 

 

In contrast my dad ended up going to watch the film recently, and in his opinion he liked it too but though it wasn't brutal enough. In his opinion he said it was pretty soft compared to bloody DDAY scene in Saving Private Ryan. He felt that it wasn't shocking enough.

 

OFC perhaps Nolan wanted to keep a lower PG rating, so perhaps that was it but personally i thought it still made a impact even without gore or dismemberment of corpses that my father expected.

 

So what about the rest of you that watched the film? any thoughts or opinions?

We watched Dunkirk as a family during our summer Holiday, we really liked it, I also bought the Dunkirk book written by the historical advisor to the film.

 

 

There is an interview with Nolan in the book. He talks about going back to watch films like Saving Private Ryan and the Thin Red Line and making a conscious decision to have the threat in the film as implied rather than full in your face.

 

 

You don`t actual see any Germans in the film until the end and then they are blurred, he said he wanted the feeling of encroaching peril and fear, I think not showing the perimeter was part of this. You just get to hear the fighting and shelling getting closer.

 

 

He also said in first draft of the script he had the characters making reference Nazi`s all the time and then realized he didn't want to make a war film, but a film about survival, personal and of a nation. He said selling the concept of a film about defeat to Hollywood was a challenge.

 

 

 

 

You are right about the sound, the part of the film that effected me the most was the Stuka attack on the Mole, and it was the sound, really made you want to run. I can`t image what it was like in real life.

 

 

Great Film.

The critics raved about it in the US. Saying it was great.

I should have known better..I never agree with the critics.

If they hate it I love it...if they like it I usually find it lacking.

Obviously, someone pays them.

 

I found Dunkirk disappointing. Bordering on boring.

The Dunkirk story deserves much better.

However, some of the Spitfire footage was good.

 

Would not rush out to see it in the theaters for $$$.

it will eventually come out on cable.
