RE: I would pose a question prior to seeing this movie......

....why make it? As part of the battle for France, the Dunkirk episode highlights the evacuation of British and Allied forces out of France prior to the Nazi conquest of that country.

Yes, history records it as a heroic struggle to escape and retreat from the dominant forces of the Nazi war machine. A harrowing story to be sure. Yet, it was an early --defeat-- for the allied forces, as was the conquest of France itself. History has documented the events of it in detail. So I ask; where is the movie in this? Why bother to retell this story?

I guess I'd have to see it and answer the question for myself. Thanks for the review. I'll save funds from my movie budget for something with the promise of being more enjoyable. I'll see it on the small screen, within my home, where I can pause the movie to take breaks with regard to the re-filling and draining of my bladder.

Here's a setup for the next question I pose:
In the spring of 2015 I paid to see in imax 3d "madmax fury road". I'm not really a fan of that franchise but I'd heard that it was a good production and at the time nothing more interesting was being shown in theaters. I came away from that experience thinking that it was indeed a good production and a story with heart, but....well....meh, not my glass of ale.

Given this, if the choice in the imax 3d theater was between Fury Road or Dunkirk. Which would you go see; Fury Road or Dunkirk?
