A teenager battles an evil corporation in a quest to control a virtual reality game-world. Sporadically spectacular but narratively dull SF adventure which improves on the source novel but still lapses into pop-culture reference tickbox territory at its lamest.
Three linked stories, told in different timescales, related to the Allied retreat from Dunkirk. Equal parts puzzle, technical marvel, victory-from-defeat drama, disaster movie and arthouse flick, Nolan’s film is a thing of bleak and understated beauty. Highly recommended.
