Sounds like a rehash of a a spaghetti western and the great escape that gives some form of enjoyment but afterwards you suffer from the complete ridiculousness.

Yeah I finally watched it. Pure drivel.

"MAH SARGANT TOLD ME TO GET TO DUNKIRK!!" Bollocks.

Even worse was the actual storyline and shift into snuff movie, unexpected deviation from storyline and just plain confusing end.

As with Iron Sky, if done well this could of been a masterpiece, as it is its a tracy emmins bed of a film.

Why is it nearly ALL war movies are terrible? The only ones I think were good were All quiet on the western front and the Sharpe series...

Dunkirk is ok, Battle of the River Plate is excellent, Sink the Bismarck isn't bad, The Cruel Sea is amazing, as is The Gift Horse.

It was crap.

Danny Dyer is appalling, quite frankly.

The kit was piss-poor.

Sean Bean.... Stupid, unconvincing 'hooray Henry' accent.
