Bloodless, boring and empty
22 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

The Guardian summed it up like this: "Bloodless, boring and empty: Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk left me cold." This is the most stupid movie I have seen in decades. It starts with the main 'German' actor speaking German with a horrible accent. Non of these actors convinced me of being German, the main actor utters constantly clichés like 'just kill them all'. It follows the old Hollywood pattern of 'the good guys, against the bad guys, and of course in the end the good guys win. The enemy is just mowed down, everyone of them shot from the airplanes. I had to force myself to watch it to the end, and sat there in disbelief how such an unauthentic, stereotypical portrayal of an important part of WW II history can have accumulated so many positive reviews.
