Towards the end of the film, the blind man is played by John Nolan. John Nolan is the uncle of the director, Christopher Nolan, and has appeared in several of his nephew's films. See more »

Goofs

Many of the shots of Tom Hardy in the Spitfire cockpit were shot in a different two seat prop aircraft (visible in a youtube video - search Dunkirk Lee on Solent) which was been adapted to resemble the rear of a Spitfire and it's distinctive tail. The revealing element is the extended tail wheel, which is longer than that on the Spitfire. See more »

The British soldiers who fought their way out of France deserve a better movie than this one -- Not Recommended
17 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Twenty excellent movies could have been made about Dunkirk in WWII. This movie, however, is not excellent; it's not even very good. Two major reasons why:

(1) For the important roles of British soldiers, men who in reality fought their way out of France, sacrificing many in combat and enduring tremendous privation, injury, terror, and hardship, the director chose to focus on soldiers who think only of their own survival--certainly there were some men like that in WWII, but it is simply a waste of wonderful and compelling raw material to produce this movie out of all the possible scenarios the director could have chosen.

(2) This movie skimped terribly on sets. It was embarrassing to watch a few hundred men on the beach, one or two Royal Navy ships in the water, two British planes in the air, and a handful of civilian boats. This movie does not give an accurate picture of the beaches or the mole.

This movie simply does not do justice to the hell on earth that was Dunkirk. I have to wonder why they bothered. I had looked forward to this movie and was very disappointed.
