About this Film


ODEON says...
400,000 Allied soldiers were trapped on the beach at ‘Dunkirk’, surrounded by the German army in the early days of the Second World War. And they needed to be evacuated. 

France had been overrun, and the Allied army had been defeated and trapped. In a desperate effort to save the troops, more than 800 boats – from military ships to tiny civilian fishing boats – came to help with the evacuation that would become known as the Miracle of Dunkirk. 

Christopher Nolan brings his vision to ‘Dunkirk’, one of the defining events of the 20th Century, starring Tom Hardy, Kenneth Branagh and Mark Rylance.

Film of the year for me. Stunning, horrifying, captivating, unmissable. I felt like I was on the beach with them, frightening. You know what is going to happen but you can't take your eyes off the screen.

Edge of your seat stuff! Take your kids, your grandparents and friends, this film is for everyone. The best film I've seen this year by a mile


Reviewer: scarlettblackDate: 2017-07-21

An excellent film. The structure is complicated, as would be expected of Christopher Nolan, but the momentum is non- stop from the opening frame. Exhilarating, moving and superbly acted, definitely one to immediately watch again.


Reviewer: J255985Date: 2017-07-21

Terrible watch. Slow. Budget must of been £5. A few boats/planes/troops on beach. Only watched due to limitless, dont waste your time
