Predictable, shallow and boring. Beyond all the visual pump and circumstance just another generic self-congratulatory war movie. Shit. But the Brits will eagerly gobble it all up.
Also BF109's turnfighting.
Yep, history is written by the winners. Not sure a version glorifying the Nazi's would do well.
I don't know what the British recollection of this all is, being victors and such. But I can't shake of the impression that the Dunkirk evacuation was solely executed by pleasure yachts, civilians and the worlds biggest navy who could only spare two dingy destroyers. Of which one looked suspiciously French.
It's a seemingly nice narrative. Civilians and the military banding together in the war effort. The real hero here is not only the brave tommy in green but all who blablabla. Pompous, predictable. Boring.
It's just the British version of the type of movie where the Americans go stand and clap afterwards. Slightly more subtle, bit more self-conscious and aware of the critiques but ultimately the same. It's not even an offensively bad movie. Just very mediocre and easily digestible. Reminds me why I rarely go to the cinema any more.
