Saw Dunkirk Last Night

Lukewarm takes after the jump.

It wasn’t a bad movie, but I left the theater feeling like it was a bit forgettable. I know it’s often hard to adapt an historical event for the big screen, but it felt a little sterile. There wasn’t a ton of dialogue, especially for the first half or so and that made me feel somewhat like I was just watching action with no story.

Also, the constant tension created by the score felt a little intrusive and distracting. Maybe that’s a Christopher Nolan thing, I don’t know.

It’s a movie that’s worth watching, but I don’t know that it’s worth paying theater money for.
