I finally got to see Dunkirk last night. Mom and her friend had plans to see it back in July, but then her friend kind of bailed.
Anyway, Dunkirk is a story of World War II. The enemy – presumably the Germans – had pushed the British and the French all the way to the coast, and the sea was their only hope of escape.
Never has a movie provided such a visceral experience. The sound was incredible. All movies have surround sound, of course, but this was different. It made the audience feel as if they were there. It did seem a bit louder than normal, but maybe that’s just the type of sound – and sound effects – that come with this movie.
The visuals matched the sound perfectly. The picture was so clear. Everything about this movie was authentic – including the acting. Harry Styles pulls off a convincing performance. He’s not just a name drop or a ratings draw. Kenneth Branagh was a surprise – he was almost unrecognizable. But he definitely had an important role.
It was a heart-racing, pulse-pounding adventure. But of course, it wasn’t all fun and games. There were bittersweet moments at the end, which were almost tear-jerking.
Don’t miss out on this movie.
