...the brave British civilians who risked their lives to rescue them.
It's a LITTLE movie that isn't much about the EPIC stories centered on Dunkirk. I think it's such a poor imitation of that overall story that it fails miserably while assaulting viewers' ears with Zimmer's horrible 'music'. I LOVE WWII movies, even those that are just fair. This one's embarrasingly BAD.
And where are the French in this movie, besides manning the barricades in the town's streets?
