I’ve been waiting for this film to come out for well over a year – the trailers have always looked fantastic, and the storyline was bound to be gripping.
The film tells the story of the evacuation of Dunkirk, whilst under fire from Nazi war planes. Tom Hardy plays a British pilot, trying to down the German planes, all whilst having his face totally covered by his equipment…. I say this, because earlier this week, there was an article about why he always has his face covered in films!
I think his face looks alright when it’s on show too, though…Embed from Getty Images
Harry Styles played the part of Alex in the film – a British soldier also trying to escape from Dunkirk. Following the randomness of Ed Sheeran in GoT, I was a bit dubious about his involvement in the film….but the kid can act! He didn’t stick out like a sore thumb, and he did pretty well. Clever move by the casting directors, to ensure the film would appeal to a younger audience.Embed from Getty Images
Overall, the graphics were great, and it really made you feel for these soldiers – how awful the conditions would’ve been in Dunkirk…cold, freezing, soaking, exhausted…. it sounds and looks like hell.
