Besides being a movie buff, I am also into history. One of the specific eras in history that interest me is the World War II era especially the European battlefront. It got me hooked because it was the Great War that shows the battle between good and evil. Most of the wars in years after that are just civil conflicts.
Dunkirk is one of the crucial times in World War II because this is part of the Battle of France. U.S. hasn’t joined the War yet because Pearl Harbor hasn’t happened yet during this battle. Even though some knows the outcome of this story, the movie showed how it affects the Allied Forces in Dunkirk.
Since this is a war movie, it has lots of explosions and fast-paced scenes that may give dizziness especially in IMAX because the screen is so huge. Some scenes also have angles from a first person perspective as if it makes the audience part of the movie.
What I didn’t expect was that it still makes me felt good in the end after all the war-torn scenes. What I didn’t expect was the movie was only an hour and a half long because director Christopher Nolan usually makes 2-hour movies. This is the movie I highly recommend watching especially in IMAX. Despite the war story, it is also inspiring because 400,000 soldiers couldn't go home but home came for them.
