In the world of movies, Hollywood prefers WWII films.   America and Europe are the victors and even tragic events, are only blips towards the ultimate victory.

 

DUNKIRK is unambitious, flat, boring script.   It is so flat and so dull, I really wanted to get up and leave the theatre.

 

War is horrible. Yet Nolan tried to make Dunkirk, appear to be a celebration of brave military and civilian boats crossing over to pick up the soldiers.

 

Disappointing film. This earns a thumbs down, MEDICORE score.
