The only plus I can think of is that it didn't try to somehow shove a romantic store line down my throat.

And no dying guys telling their buddies through blood soaked tears, "Tell my wife...I love her...".'s got that going for it.

I was asleep by then. Lame movie.

I wish I had the opportunity to watch it on IMAX.

Yep. The RAF flew around 3500 sorties to Dunkirk during the 10 day long battle.

I'm not sure the exact number of total fighters present, but it appears that the RAF lost over 100 fighters at Dunkirk during this period, of which over 60 were Spitfires.

Ditto Rogue, thought it was outstanding, and par for the course for Nolan. Excellent film. One of the year’s best.

Got it.....Rough air ahead, we’re in for some chop.

Omg - wife and I watched this a few nights ago. She's pissed I spent real money on it.

One of the most convoluted movies I've ever watched. Director should've stopped trying to be so artistic with the timeline and just told the damn story. Though on their individual merit each scene held its own, someone in the editing room failed to comprehend the story's timeline is a main factor when telling a story.

Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.

Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

all the money they waste on visuals and we cant hear the most important parts of the movie

You need to find a new theater, or improve your home theater. Or see an ear doctor.

I like Sigs and HK's, and maybe Glocks
