Dunkirk Film Review

Dunkirk is a 2017 war film directed and written by Christopher Nolan and follows the evacuation of British troops from the beach of Dunkirk during World War 2. The film has three point of views Air, Land and Sea. The film had some dialogue but not loads and this is used effectively to make you feel like you were there as everyone is shell-shocked with what’s going on and you get how the characters are feeling from body language as this is most effectively done by Tom Hardy who is one of the pilots and has a mask on for most of the film and you can tell when he shoots down a German plane he feels a fragment of satisfaction. Harry Styles did a outstanding job and I was sceptical about this at first but hats off to him. Hans Zimmer provides a score that complements the film and makes the film even more immersive. I like the fact that Nolan chose not to give a majority of the characters names as this didn’t make you emotionally invested in that character instead your invested in all the troops and everyone involved. I loved the suspense when you were waiting for everyone to be saved and you were cheering on the rescue operation. Overall I think this is easily one of the best if not the best films I have ever seen.
