just watched the "operation dunkirk" movie, what a turd
warning spoiler alert - but you wont care

the whole movie has nothing to do with dunkirk or anything close to a real war movie and looks like it was directed by a high school kid

sorry for the wall of text but this is a cliff note wrap up of the whole movie

start off with a scientist guy with war saving knowledge for the brits or could win the war for germans. he is already captured by the germans but this is unknown at the time, but he is still conveniently being kept within 45 minute drive of the entire british army

german bad guy officer beats him up, then after he says he told a girl the secret formula, the german oficer shoots him in the head kiling him

(hello, he is the scientist who wrote the damn formula so just make him write it down for you but either way you keep him alive to be forced to work for you! but any way, lets continue with the movie.)

any way, the brits send 5 or 6 guys in a jeep to go get him like they are going shopping at the mall or something and all this is happening while the germans are "supposed" to have the brits in a major blood bath battle going on pinned down being slaughtered on the beech, these guys just hop in a jeep and drive along a main road unchallenged for miles seeing no one anywhere.

so they get to the place and the woman with super secret info and one underground dude are there waiting for them. german officer then shows up with just 10 guys in a truck despite war winning info being in the balance here, so entire german army being in the area must all be on lunch break.

underground dude who could have killed or captured the girl any time tells on them and german officer then shoots the guy who was a spy they have in french underground. (because why would they ever want to use him any more during the rest of the war)

any way, the germans stand right in the open in front of the building and tell brits and girl to come out, but they just stand there waiting to be shot at while germans are standing out in open right under the windows. never mind its obvious the brits could kill them all very easily if they fire first from the second floor window, but they never fire a shot and one of the brits gets wounded they just run away out the back door they could have escaped from 10 minutes earlier. but this way is better letting the germans chase them and call for more help, which of course they dont do since only winning the war hangs in the balance of not letting the girl escape.

after little running around in the woods they find a safe house in nearby town to call for help telling the germans who are listening their whole plan and exactly where they are going. and finally for the first time, the german officer calls in for help cutting them off.

brits steal truck, then stop on random small bridge to blow it up for no reason at all rather then, oh i dont know, maybe get the war winning info safely to england would be more important? and then of course the truck wont start so they get caught doing it

as they are about to be executed, one side of bridge blows up and everyone is dazed on ground, brits get up first and get their guns back but run away, leaving all germans alive laying on ground starting to get up, when in 2 seconds they could kill them all and be totally safe after that, but nope, run away and leave everyone alive to come after them to kill them.

finally get to place for airplane to be and no plane, just 50 germans all around surrounding them. (the ones german officer guy finally called to help)

finally brit planes show up like snipers and kill every single german all around the brits and girl never hitting them even though they are all running together side by side.

then, hey all germans are dead, yay!!! where is the plane for the girl?

enter a 1990's metal biplane with bright red body and super bright yellow wings, i kid you not!!!!

(you just have to laugh at the stupidity of the movie at this point)

any way, plane lands and then after a long 15 minute BS session between 2 strangers who have nothing to say, literally, and apparently the germans were on another break, she finally gets on the plane and takes off leaving the 3 brits alone, unarmed, with no weapons or ammo left, and stranded some 100 miles behind german lines :rolleyes:

i mean even with all the complete unbelievably through the whole movie they couldnt bring in a war era type cargo plane just for a small amount of semi authenticity to end the story and take them all out? even if you leave the brits there, a cargo plane is what the girl would be picked up in during ww2

Didn’t think it was great. I cannot understand the whole kid falling into the cabin of the boat and dying....seems like such a bizarre plot point.

You may be right. I haven’t seen it.

May you recommend some movies you feel are great for reference though?

i dont recall that part

but there was so just much that makes no sense at all through the whole thing.

like the underground guy running out in the street right in front of the germans he knows were coming any second? i guess the woods he can easily hid in behind the house to get away out the back door was too easy to escape that way and instead he took no time to even check if it was safe to run out the front door lol

Am I missing a joke here?

I did not enjoy the movie Dunkirk, but I don’t recall any of that from the movie.

re: just watched the "operation dunkirk" movie, what a turd
I understand people not liking this movie because of personal preference, but I feel like most who don’t like it, probably expected it to be some sort of new Saving Private Ryan. I thought the originality of the story line having 3 time differences was fantastic. The whole idea of the movie (and what really happened) was desperation and survival. If you thought the Allies were going to win some huge battle, you should have read your history books more closely before seeing this movie.
