Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian has awarded the film five stars and also commented the best film to date. He said,

Nolan surrounds his audience with chaos and horror from the outset, and amazing images and dazzlingly accomplished set pieces on a huge 70 mm screen, particularly the pontoon crammed with soldiers extending into the churning sea, exposed to enemy aircraft.

Most of the critics have given the good approval to the film, while Matt Zoller Seitz of is not so satisfied with the movie's presentation.

I loathed parts of it and found other parts repetitious or half-baked. But, maybe paradoxically, I admired it throughout, and have been thinking about it constantly since I saw it...

Instead, he gave him three-and-a-half stars out of four stars.
