Battle of Sevastopol was an awesome movie, though only in Russian! :D

James Holland's review
Basically too much little ships, too much ammo for the spitfires and the Luftwaffe was too effective they only sank 30 out of 200 odd ships lost.
I will have to add you on Twitter as well

Yeah I agree with his review wholeheartedly. As I mention, the story was "smaller." All because Nolan loathes CGI, and in this case I think he does so to a fault. It really would have helped the movie's scale to do a bit of crowd replication on the beaches, and put some CGI ships scattered about to add some "bulk" and scale. What he has there is remarkable, as the practical effects are very well done, but the movie and the narrative lacks that scale. It ultimately boils down to one little ship, one minesweeper, four 109s (only two on screen at a time), three Spitfires, and one He-111. Impressive on a micro level? Yes, but you don't really get a sense of the true scale of the evacuation. It still didn't take away from my enjoyment of the movie, but if anything Dunkirk will go down as an example of a movie that ignored CGI to its detriment.
