Dunkirk Review

  • 4.5/5

Christopher Nolan has done it again. This time with a very unusual genre.

This movie chronicles the condition of the Allied soldiers when they were stuck at the Dunkirk beach, waiting for evacuation. Nolan, with his amazing storytelling, has recreated the tragedy and is going to laugh all the way to the bank.

This film tells the story of the soldiers trapped on the Dunkirk beach in 1940 and follows the journey of Tommy (Fionn Whitehead), Alex(Harry Styles) and Gibson(Aneurin Barnard) as they try to survive the constant bombarding, sinking and everything that's happening around them. With Mark Rylance playing the brave captain of the rescue ship, Cillian Murphy playing the survivor with PTSD, Tom Hardy shooting down the planes - this film is brilliantly scripted and well-directed.

With his regular cast - Tom Hardy, Cillian Murphy, and with the brilliant Mark Rylance, Kenneth Branagh, James D'Arcy, Nolan has brought the story of Dunkirk to life. With the constant ticking sound in the background throughout the film, building up the tension, this film is nothing less than an edge-of-the-seat thriller. With Hans Zimmer painting each scene with emotions, this film is a must-watch.
