Glad to have seen this in a very sparsely attended Dolby Atmos theater. It sounded amazing! I should probably do a second viewing in IMAX.
Even though it was a little dense I had no issues following along. Sometimes the time-lapsed editing would throw me for a second though. I think INCEPTION did a better job of laying out the, er, layers of time which resulted in better tension and clarity, but still a pretty fun ride.
I fully expect this will grow on me over successive viewings but still won’t be as good as some of Nolan’s other films.
I’d seen complaints about the dialogue being difficult to hear but I didn’t have any issues whatsoever. The primary protagonists are all great. I really liked John David Washington, Robert Pattinson and Elizabeth Debicki in their respective roles. I also liked Aaron Taylor-Johnson. That said, I’m pretty much done with Branagh playing Russian bad guys. His fake accent is cloying and irritating, though he admittedly pulls it off better here then he did in JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT. I also totally forgot he was in DUNKIRK.
