Rarely will I see a movie that I believe should only be experienced in IMAX. Dunkirk is one of them. The shots make you feel as though you're on the beach with the men, and when they're cramped in ships, you feel claustrophobic, which was already apparent being surrounded by a room full of viewers. The overwhelming stereo at an IMAX makes every gunfire and bomb drop impactful. You feel the intensity of the trapped men because it feels like you're experiencing it with them.
As soon as the first bullet is fired, you don't get a moment to rest. You're always wondering when the next attack will come. And interestingly, you don't get a chance to know any of the soldiers, but you know enough. They're young, they're scared, and they want to go home.
Dunkirk isn't just a movie. It's an experience. It puts you on the beach, in the boats, and in the cockpit. You'll get scared. You'll cry. You'll celebrate and cheer.
