Just a couple of observations:
1) Too loud. If my hearing's damaged, by the screeching planes towards the beginning, I'm suing everyone.
2) The English dressed very nicely for war.
3) Zimmer's intrusive score annoyed me. The movie is set during an era that was screamingly analog: hand-sewn this, hand-pounded that...such a beautiful world before plastic, (!) but I digress. The composer's pulsating, synthesized score seemed very incongruous as a backdrop to wool sweaters and calf-skin oxygen masks. PS: nice try with Elgar's Nimrod Variation in ultra slow mo', when all the fishing boats showed up to save the day, shameful that the only tolerable music wasn't credited at the end.
I wasn't impressed, but still feeling a little melancholy. Did the movie get under my skin? Or was it the $20 ticket?
