3.0 out of 5 stars Days That Shook the World! Victory Snatched From Disaster!, 2 Dec 2012
This review is from: Dunkirk [DVD] (DVD)
A surprisingly great war film, this movie tells two different stories. One is about a group of British soldiers trapped behind enemy lines, desperately trying to make their way to the French coast. Meanwhile, on the other side of the channel, English civilians bravely prepare to help with the mass evacuation at Dunkirk. Near the end, the two stories converge "Tarantino style." There aren't many household names in this one. Richard Attenborough headlines a cast of British actors that have recognizable faces. There is quite a bit of combat in the middle stage of the film as the British soldiers dart from hedge to farmhouse to avoid capture by the Nazis. The pace of the movie slows toward the end, but this is a historically accurate and memorable retelling of real heroes who snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.

As a piece of art, as an historical record, as an entertainment, as a jolly good film, as a tribute; I find it difficult to understand how this can be anything less than five stars.
