    This is a very good movie about an important time in England's fight against Germany in World War II. The blu-ray version is stunning.

    One of the Best Films of 2017

    What are these people with their one star reviews talking about? Unlike most of the ghastly war films made recently, this stays nearest the truth of what happened and eschews the ludicrous multi-cultural, woke nonsense of films like the Darkest Hour. No mock heroics, just a lot of tense, frightened young men thrown into a disastrous escapade not unlike that of the First World War. And the criticisms that there weren't enough soldiers in shot. Well, look at the pictures. Excellent acting from the old timers Branagh and Rylance and no duffers amongst the young ones either. I bought this Blu-ray expecting not a lot, for less than the price of a bottle of Milton. And it is far superior in scope and sentiment to the stiff upper lip 1958 version - which was fine for its time. Excellent subtitles and a host of extras in this very English understated film.

    A True Story from a Master Filmmaker

    Posted .

    Dunkirk is divided into 3 sections: the fight in the air pitting British Royal Air Force fighters against enemy planes, the survival of British soldiers on the shore of Dunkirk in France, and the rescue of the soldiers by British private citizens using day to day pleasure boats who have to cross the English Channel and face the potential of being struck by torpedoes or enemy planes. On the surface this may sound like the movie would take 3 hours but Christopher Nolan, as if assembling a fine tuned clock, weaves through the 3 stories in less than 2 hours and literally keeps you on edge of your seat. For the duration of the film you feel like you are on the beach with the soldiers, in the cockpit of a fighter plane, and on a pleasure boat called the Moonstone on it's way to Dunkirk. This is movie is really unlike any other war movie I have seen or any war movie in recent history because it's less about actual combat and more about an historical rescue operation where literally every hour counts before almost 300 Thousand allied soldiers face certain death. Visuals and audio on the Blu Ray are first class but the 4K benefits from HDR for richer colors. The 5.1 lossless mix is the same and totally immersive. If you are a Nolan fan, war history buff, or enjoy well made, thrilling films based on true stories I highly, highly recommend Dunkirk.

    Dunkirk is not a war movie; it's a survival film

    Dunkirk is a great film, as long as you don't go into it, as my parents did, expecting a standard World War II story of heroism and valor in the face of a powerful evil force. Dunkirk is not a war movie; it's a survival film. And that's not to say I don't personally enjoy war movies, because I absolutely do. But Dunkirk is something else, something different. It's almost akin to an arthouse flick, but created with the budget and scale of a traditional summer blockbuster. Christopher Nolan, the director, does an excellent job of promoting a sense of anxiety and dread in the mind of the viewer. Oh boy, does he really do an excellent job of this! But Nolan does not make you care for the characters as would another director, such as Spielberg or the Coen brothers. That's not the point of this movie, or really any of Nolan's other films (with Interstellar perhaps being the sole exception). The point of the film is the atmosphere, the tension, the visceral FEELING of being trapped alongside hundreds of thousands of your fellow soldiers on the beaches of Dunkirk. It's the seemingly fruitless struggle against an unspeakable, creeping darkness that cannot be stopped, much less seen or understood. Dunkirk is not about a war; it's about the sensation of war. And if you go into the film with this in mind, you will find yourself appreciating Dunkirk much more than you otherwise would.

    Stunning film — of all war narratives, the directorial choices in this one made me feel closer to the content than any other. It's less focused on a traditionally unified story and more focused on the specifics and horrifying subtleties of sequences of war and war-specific survival. The film transfer is great and will likely never need "remastering."

    Instant classic

    Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk instantly establishes itself as one of the best war movies of all time. Aided by Nolan's disdain for CGI, it is as gritty as Saving Private Ryan. However, Dunkirk's non-linear narrative alternates among three separate threads - soldiers trapped at Dunkirk, a Spitfire squadron crossing the Channel and a pleasure boat sailing from Weymouth. These storylines converge at Dunkirk in a triumph of determination and heroism over despair. Hope may not emerge (yet) in the end, but there is relief to be alive and a resolve to fight another day. While the movie does not aim to dazzle with colors, the UHD image is incredibly detailed and realistic. The lossless 5.1 audio is so immersive that I do not miss Atmos. It is difficult to tell when the sound effects end and the music score begin, and the booming scenes make the quiet moments all the more effective. The supplements, on a separate Blu-ray disc, show how the WWII event was recreated on land, air and sea. Overall, the 4K set is a technical marvel that even offers a glimpse of how it was done.

    Dunkirk Blu ray Review

    Owned for 1 week when reviewed.

    The picture quality on the blu ray is fantastic as is the same with all Nolan films the imax shots are vivid and really can be mistaken by an untrained eye as 4k shots. The blu ray also includes a special features disc with art unlike most bland blu ray releases. The sound mix is crisp and clear although I feel the right speaker set up would take full advantage of the audio track. The film itself is great and tense and any fan of history or nolan should definitely check it out.

    A fantastic cinematic experinece

    On the 205" screen (Epson 1080P) this movie is an adrenalin rush. In addition to an excellent story that is well composed and executed, you are treated to awe inspiring quality visuals that are best served on a large dispaly. The sound is equally impressive with fantastic amplitude range and low frequency components that bring the experience to life. Not only do you feel the explosions but on one scene, I felt a draft in the room - all produced by the sub-sonic component of this movie. The movie changes aspect ratio but I screened it at 2.4:1 using the anamorphic lens so during a few scenes I was cropping the top and bottom of the image. This was only noticeable a few times during aerial battles when some aircraft all but left the screen. If you have an anamorphic screen, I would recommend watching the movie in the occasionally cropped 2.40:1 aspect ratio. I also watched this movie not cropped on a 4k television with a run of the mill 7.1 sound system. Although this movie was still an outstanding work of art, well worth watching, it was not the same experience on a smaller uhd hdr lcd with a less capable sound system.

    I saw this movie in 70mm at the cinema and knew I would want the 4K UHD HDR disc when it came out. I pre-ordered it as soon as I could and was happy to receive it from Best Buy a few days before it officially launched. The video quality is exceptional, the audio is good but unfortunately my copy has a scratch or blemish on the disc that makes it freeze for about 12 seconds, around 19 minutes in. I have tried all the usual tricks to clean it up but it would not play back this section on either my Oppo 203 or my XBox One X. I suspect that Warner Brothers either have poor quality control or more likely, when they pack the UHD disc on top of the extras disc in the same plastic holder, they are somehow damaging the sensitive UHD disc. I have heard that those lucky enough to have the 4K disc packed on its own disc holder are ok but I was not that lucky. I will have to make the 70 mile round-trip to replace the disc which is annoying but not the end of the world. Regarding the movie though, it is one of my favorites and well worth owning as a demo disc if you own a 4K TV and player.

    Saw this movie on the “big screen” at the theater and enjoyed it. Nevertheless, the 4K version at home really looked great with the improved contrast, deep blacks and nice surround sound ! This is actually a gray/cloudy movie with certain scenes such as the air battles being bathed in glorious color. I viewed both the 2K (1080p) version and the 4K version in back-to-back evenings. Both were excellent cinematically and sound-wise, but of course 4K trumps 2K. What an inspiring piece of history ! So glad this 2017 version was made to depict it. Highly recommended for those that have a historical interest.

    A Beautifully Shot WWII Story

    5 out of 5 Stars. Dunkirk is a beautifully shot movie that captures the bravery of the men that fought in that part of France told through a series of intertwined short stories. The heroic civilian father and sons that sail their boat to Dunkirk to assist with the extraction of the British trips and sadly fall victim to a damaged British soldier is beautifully told and while heartbreaking, stands as the best short story in the film. The Spitfire, out of fuel, circling the beach at Dunkirk is an extraordinarily, beautifully shot scene and one of the best of any war movie in recent history. The 4K rendition is well worth adding to your library.

    Great Movie for All Who Love a Well Made Film

    This is a great movie. One area often overlooked in film and military history is the small events that preceded the large ones. Dunkirk is one of those events. It was a pivotal rescue that directly effected all that would follow. Had the rescue at Dunkirk not been carried out and the army lost, the German army would have had no opposition to invading England and WWII would have likely been won by the axis powers. This film helps give viewers a look and insight into the events at Dunkirk, from three points of view, and three aspects of time, which eventually intersect to reveal the story. The visuals are stunning in the way they were filmed. I especially loved the aerial scenes. The films score adds to the feel of emotions and tense situations experienced by the characters. Not your traditional war movie full of mindless violence and dialog, the director lets your senses be a big pard of your viewing experience.

    Another Great Christopher Nolan Film!

    Christopher Nolan takes us through the harrowing experience of the survivors at Dunkirk - just little before the entry of America in WW2. Kenneth Branagh, Mark Rylance, Cilian Murphy, and Tom Hardy turn in top-shelf performances. The rest of the cast are relative unknowns, but who also turn in great performances. The story takes place on the shores of Dunkirk, the ships at sea who are there to rescue them, and the skies above from the RAF pilots who risked their lives for their countrymen below. It's the story of how hundreds of civilian volunteers in their own boats came forth to rescue thousands of men. Mr. Nolan takes us from edge-of-your-seat suspense as in his early films, to moments of reflection.

    Dunkirk Steelbook for Fans

    Nice to have storytelling through visuals more than dialogue, even though there's still a bit of exposition throughout. Overrated by most people, as the storytelling through the time periods feels a little pretentious, but still a solid film. Steelbook is decent enough, not the best design, not the worst. If you're a fan of the film, worth picking up at a decent price, though I imagine there will likely be re-releases in the future with both a better design and price point.

    Saw this in 70mm IMAX when it came out back in 2017. Awesome theater experience on a technical level, but lackluster in dull in the story and character departments. Home theater experience is more or less the same if you have a high end tv and surround sound. At least Nolan’s movies look great and preserve the IMAX sequences on home video.
