When their headquarters are destroyed and the world is held hostage, the Kingsman's journey leads them to the discovery of an allied spy organization in the US. These two elite secret organizations must band together to defeat a common enemy.
Evacuation of Allied soldiers from Belgium, the British Empire, and France, who were cut off and surrounded by the German army from the beaches and harbor of Dunkirk, France, between May 26- June 04, 1940, during Battle of France in World War II. Written by
Before a ditching or forced landing, a pilot would have been trained to open the canopy to prevent it from jamming because of the impact forces (incidentally, in many cases, pilots taking off from aircraft carriers even left the canopy open just in case they ditched immediately after lifting off). Not only does this not happen in the movie but, in one case, the pilot even opens the canopy and, inexplicably, closes it back before touching down (actually leaves it ajar one inch or two). Predictably, in the second case, the canopy jams, nearly causing the pilot to drown.
Further, in this second case, the pilot waves through the opening. However, there would not have been enough of an opening for him to squeeze his forearm through. See more »

Fails to capture the grand scale and drama of what happened
This movie should've been called "What happened to a handful of men at Dunkirk" and be labelled a documentary at best and History Channel would've made a much better documentary of it. I guess they tried to go down to a up close view to intensify but it just falls short. It's too slow to captivate, there's too few things happening considered the grand scale of the Dunkirk operations. It feels like a few hundred men were trapped on a beach and a dozen boats that came to rescue them. I can not even begin to describe how disappointed I am in this production, the only relieving factor was it not being longer than 1h 39m otherwise my head would've imploded.
