I thought it was crap, just a load of blokes standing in line on the beach.
Didn't have a single German in it, made it a bit one sided with very little action.

My Grandad was there when the first shot was fired in Dunkirk.

He was home by the second.

I always prefer British second world war filums from the 40s, 50s, even 60s because they tended to have people in them that had done if for real. People like Anthony Quayle (SOE veteran), and Richard Todd, who played his own commanding officer in the Longest Day, while another actor played the young Lieutenant Todd, and Kenneth More, Leo Genn, David Niven and many others. It made it more believable. They brought it with them to their parts, and showed respect.

Sorry to drag it up.. but got this on dvd and watched it last night....boring or what. History says up to 850 small boats where used to evacuate the soldiers...there was less than 10 in the film. Why didnt harry styles die, and didnt know they had hairstylist in them days. No...not impressed at all.

That sadly is the going rate for two adult cinema tickets these days :sad: I don't mind paying 8 or even 10 quid but they can f!$% off at 13 quid a head :thumbdown: Unless I really want to see a certain film I'll wait until it's available on Virgin :thumbup:

And my review is.....

Very good, it has some faults but it is very realistic and shows just how close we were to total a defeat in WW2.

I'm not sure that with today's population we could do it again though...

Watched the original '58 film yesterday - the sense of scale and realism so much better than the new one, no cgi or other computer trickery.
