Dunkirk will continue Nolan's flawless streak of unrivaled dominance over the cinematic landscape, further cementing himself as the Kubrick of our generation.

I'm going to one of the first screenings of Dunkirk in Australia. Can't wait!

Dunkirk has barely any characterization and what little action there is is too sterile. It might as well be a History Channel documentary. One of the more disappointing films of the summer.

It's a good movie, but I mostly agree.

WOW! The greatest accomplishment in cinema since the days of Hitchcock and Kubrick! Yes, it lacks characterisation but I feel like the movie is about more than just the story. It's about the situation and the event! In War, people don't sit around a campfire and talk about their lives: they try to stay alive! It's also returns to a gritty and realistic style of filmmaking that has been forgotten about in recent years, it's told in a very unique way and my heart hasn't beat so fast while watching movies in my life! This may be my favourite movie in a few years time but, for now, it sits comfortably in my top 15!

And it reminded me why I loved movies and Hans Zimmer's haunting score is his best and really adds something to the movie!

Only great filmmakers can turn a movie that's not character driven and has little dialogue into a masterpiece.

Okay, I know that I've commented on Dunkirk a lot lately but who cares? It's a good movie and good movies deserve to be celebrated! I watched this for a second time with a few mates and boy, it's better than the first time. There's a lot I didn't pick on on the first viewing (e.g. Michael Caine's voice and a few hints at the timeline). Thank you Nolan for making a cinematic epic that essientally resembles a moving painting. There's hardly any character development or dialogue but the acting, the urgency, the realism, the score and the subtle hints at humanity still make it really intense!

Well, this blew me away. Dunno if I LIKE it more than Inception, Dark Knight or Interstellar (all 10/10 movies in my book), but it certainly sits up there with them. A masterpiece.

Technically well made but it didn't grab me. I'll probably watch it again though at some point, it's Nolan and his films have a way of growing on me.

The production value of this film is incredible. I don't even mind the minimal dialog. The only thing that bothered me was the very minimal dialog at certain points. I'd have to watch it again, but at times it seemed almost unrealistic that people weren't talking to each other which in turn was almost distracting. To be fair, this may just be something Nolan was going for to create a certain atmosphere, in which case this would be nit picking. The aerial dogfights are unmatched though and I loved the back and forth between the pilots. Solid 9/10 overall.

If this doesn’t win Best Picture, then the Academy no longer means anything to me!

Dunkirk is soulless and doesn't even have the three act structure. That's why a lot of people don't relate to it or any faceless character in it's dull run time.

Pretty great visuals, but I did n't find myself rooting for any of the characters, the dialogue was just exposition & the plot was convoluted. & this is coming from a massive Nolan fan. Hopefully, Tenet is going to be much better

You realize this can easily be countered with “ENTERTAINING”?
