Here are Dunkirk first reactions:
Steven Weintraub – Collider.
Dunkirk is edge of your seat filmmaking that’s fully realized in IMAX. Can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like it. See this in IMAX!
A lot of people were wondering about Harry Styles & unknown cast. They’re all great but Dunkirk is not about any one solider.
Also ‘Dunkirk’ is another brilliant collaboration between Nolan & Hans Zimmer. The way he mixes in a ticking clock with score is nail biting.
Let me say this one more time: if you’re going to see ‘Dunkirk’ go to an IMAX theater. Look for IMAX 70mm. It’s absolutely worth the $.
Erik Davis – Fandango.
Dunkirk is chaotic, relentless, thrilling & one of the most captivating movies you will see this year. A master class in craft. What a ride.
30 seconds in, Nolan once again delivers a spectacular edge-of-your-seat opening sequence. And then it just keeps upping the tension.
From direction to editing to cinematography to score, with Dunkirk Christopher Nolan proves he is one of the great filmmakers of our time.
Eric Eisenberg – CinemaBlend.
Dunkirk is thrilling, beautiful & a must in 70mm IMAX – but it’s also hard to ignore that it has zero distinctive personalities/characters.
Anna Klassen – Bustle.
DUNKIRK is fantastic. Truly thrilling from first to last second. A heartbreaking, heart-pounding, nail-biting offering. Nolan fans, rejoice.
DUNKIRK relies on v little dialogue, but is entirely impactful. We all know what happened on that beach, but Nolan’s take is worth visiting.
Yes, DUNKIRK relies heavily on sound of an increasingly fast ticking clock to build suspense. It may be a cheap trick, but it’s effective AF.
And for those asking: Harry Styles does well in DUNKIRK, was pleasantly surprised.
Alicia Malone – Fandango.
DUNKIRK: intense! 3 intercutting stories on 3 time frames. Almost a silent film, w/ incredible score. May be divisive. I LOVED. See 70mm!
Jason Guerrasio – Business Insider.
Dunkirk packs a wallop but VERY different Nolan movie. Def see on IMAX. Tom Hardy has 10 lines & is amazing. Harry Styles can act people!!!
Stephen Whitty – New York Daily News.
Can’t wait to review “Dunkirk” a mix of modern storytelling (interwoven time frames), classic filmmaking (real Spitfire dogfights).
