"There's no hiding from this, son."
Directed by Christopher Nolan
My most anticipated film of the year! It's the event. Four hundred thousand allied soldiers trapped on a beach, surrounded by German forces, with little hope, it's a survival. This movie is riveting. You expect to ease your way into the story, to wait for the climactic peak of this war. This whole movie is an unstoppable force of running against time, with glorious shot after glorious shot, showcasing three different sides of one dramatic story, by land, sea, and air and it comes in magnificent form. Christopher Nolan has made a fantastic story and in the runtime of just short of two hours, it's tremendous. This cast with Mark Rylance, Tom Hardy, Fionn Whitehead, Harry Styles, and Kenneth Branagh is good. The thing with this group of actors, as great as they are (even I was surprised how good Styles was), there's no back history, nothing to give us a reason to have a lot of care for these characters, it's just the moment, this trap, that propels us into a powerhouse dramatic, grand tale, that is definitely an Oscar contender and one of the best films of the year. This experience was like no other. With a fantastic scatter direction from Nolan, you have to pay attention throughout, the gorgeous warfare, especially the aerial scenes, which were tremendous, and a heart pounding score from Hans Zimmer, this is a gigantic experience, and a real grand spectacle. My minor gripes is actually the timeframe, why is it less than two hours? A love a good war story, but this definitely satisfied. Also the ending, it leaves on a proper note, not to my liking and that's all I'll say on it. You have to see this in the biggest screen possible, you'll be in for a great treat. A stunning survival, with incredible cinematography, beautiful effects, a juggernaut tale of war, Christopher Nolan you brilliant man, I can practically see it from here. An Oscar.
