Early reactions to Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk are full of praise

3 min read

The next few weeks could easily be the most anticipated on the movie calendar this year. Yes, we’ve already had many excellent movies so far, but in the coming few weeks we are getting War of the Planet of the Apes, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and even more importantly Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

Nolan’s World War 2 era film might not have the big blockbuster eye candy  appeal like the other two, but as all Nolan fans and movie goers know (that’s the same group of people, isn’t it?), it’s not about the number of visual effects that you have, but how you use them that make the difference and Nolan has built his career on making eye-poppingly beautiful films that remain incredibly clever and make full use of your brain cells and not just your visual cortex. Which is why, even if this time his film is not a big sci-fi epic or Superhero story, it will always be hugely anticipated.

It appears that at least our anticipation is not misplaced once again as early social media reactions from press indicate that Nolan has once again made an amazing movie that is going to challenge its viewers – and that as it turns out, Harry Styles is not just a pretty face but can act as well:

I was always excited to see this, now just colour me even more so. It sounds like it’s going to be a potentially divisive film given Nolan’s unique style that will make the story a little more complex that what many people are used to, but that’s part of what I love about Nolan – is that he tends not to do the ordinary.

We are a little over 2 weeks away from the release of Dunkirk which promises to be another worthy addition to the Nolan crown. We have an exciting next few weeks ahead of us and my movie-going body is certainly ready.

A man of many talents, but no sense how to use them. I could be discovering the cure for aids or finding ways to achieve world peace, but I’d rather be watching movies and writing here instead.

    Gonna be good.

    My friend’s great grandad told him how bad it was at Dunkirk. They were trying to get to the beach in time before the boats left. The terrain was tough and he really struggled because he didn’t have that much experience with his new Panzer tank.

      Hahaha. Poor Jerry.

      ROFL! Funniest thing I’ve read in a while.

    • oh!

  • Peter Pan

    This looks like a movie that will be in the same vein as Black Hawk Down, Saving Private Ryan, Full Metal Jacket, Apocalypse Now, Platoon, etc. Movies that do a great job of portraying the the realities of war! Definitely a movie I would like to watch on an IMAX screen!
