The Luftwaffe did not start painting fighter aircraft nose cones yellow until later in 1940. However Christopher Nolan has admitted this was done deliberately to make the German aircraft easier to identify by the audience. See more »
Utterly underwhelming as a piece of storytelling and a piece of entertainment
I cannot tell you how disappointed I was with this film, being a fan of about everything Christopher Nolan does.
There were 2 ways the story of Dunkirk could be told:
1.An epic which showed broadly the scale of the operation, the death toll and the effect on the war.
2. Follow a group of characters and experience the story through their eyes as they go through it all.
It attempts the latter and falls short in a big way. Paper thin characters across the board left me completely disinterested in the story. Even Tom Hardy failed to evoke an emotion. What were his character traits? I couldn't name one except the obvious bravery.
The effects are seamless, I will give it that, but the quantities of everything are somewhat baffling. I think I saw less than 10 aircraft in the whole movie, yet dive bombing is largely the focus of the film. Did they run out of budget?
I think I watched a different film to the other reviewers.
