Christopher Nolan’s Epic War Movie: Dunkirk

Here are a couple of things we thought you should want to know to get yourself excited for the intense Christopher Nolan masterpiece.

As we’re all used to the sci-fi movie genre that Nolan thrived pretty well in, getting him the Saturn Award, now we get to see him direct a movie which is based on historical background. Christopher Nolan is one of the most successful filmmakers in history.
From fighting criminals in a bat suit to astronauts searching for a new home, Nolan has directed so many outstanding movies that made him the sixth-highest-grossing director by the box office.

With a rating of 9.6/10 on IMDb, Dunkirk is an epic war movie talking about the evacuation of allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, Canada, and France, who were surrounded by the German army from seaport Dunkirk, during World War II.

How do we know we’re going to love this movie? Probably because Hans Zimmer, once again, is the composer of this Christopher Nolan movie soundtrack. He composed music for over 150 films, including The Lion King. Yes, our favorite childhood animation.

Nolan has previously worked with Tom Hardy on many movies, however for the first time we get to see him in a lead role, which could be another reason why you should be excited for Dunkirk.

Harry Styles, One Direction’s former member, definitely left us with excitement knowing that he’s got a role in the movie too, along with Cillian Murphy, Fionn Whitehead, Kenneth Branagh, and Mark Rylance.
The cast couldn’t get more eccentric than this. Having no female actresses in the whole movie cast except for a minor role as a nurse.

Now that we’ve stated the facts, we’ve seen Dunkirk and here’s what we think of the movie. If you’re going to see Dunkirk expecting an action movie, a huge plot twist or a storyline that’s quite unpredictable, well, you are not going to get that. What you’re going to get is amazing cinematography as the movie was shot on IMAX 65mm and 65mm large format film stock, the film made extensive use of practical effects, such as employing thousands of extras, assembling boats that had participated in the real Dunkirk evacuation, and using genuine era-appropriate planes for aerial sequences. Also, the mesmerizing musical soundtrack by Hans Zimmer that will make you on edge the whole timt. We felt that we were there during the war because of how intense and realistic the movie was. If you haven’t seen Dunkirk. You better go and WATCH IT.
