I kind of expected a crud filled war flick. This film had a feel all to it's own. Dunkirk was impactful and gut wrenching. There were a few different points of view and there was crossover in the story lines.
This made for a little confusion at first (at least for me). It took a few scenes to gather the full effect of what this movie had to offer. In the midst of this hopeless situation, we are offered hope and courage.
I would see Dunkirk again before seeing much of this summer's movie heap. Let me know if you agree with my assessment.
