Awesome edit! The edits here are basically perfect, and the difference in style between Dunkirk and Darkest Hour add a unique dynamic between how the two parts of the story feel in relation to each other. Every cut or edit or rescore looks and sounds great. I watched the monochrome version and it looks amazing and helps keep this edit distinct from its two sources. It won't replace either movie for me, but it instead will act as a standalone experience going forward.

This is truly a perfect fan-edit; a brilliant and creative concept executed flawlessly. Every edit was cinema-quality, which is not easy to pull off with a Zimmer score! Although I enjoyed both original films, I would recommend this edit over either one in isolation.

The question, then, is not whether to watch this edit, but how best to watch it. The two original films have drastically different color grading, which remains jarring despite the editor's immense efforts to remedy the issue. For that reason, I prefer the black-and-white version. However, for the sake of completeness, I should mention the two scenes which do not work as well in grayscale. First, there are a few brief (3-5 seconds) underwater shots from "Dunkirk" which the black-and-white version blurs into incomprehensible gray. This is a nitpick. Second, the striking visual of black oil creeping across crystal-blue waters in "Dunkirk" is almost entirely lost in grayscale, as the oil and the sea are largely indistinguishable from one another. However, the presence of oil in the water is still made abundantly clear through dialogue, and it can also be seen on the soldiers' faces and clothing. In terms of narrative, absolutely no clarity is lost in the black-and-white version.
Personally, I will gladly sacrifice a few cool visuals for a more uniform color grade, but those who don't find the color differences jarring may disagree with me.

What a brilliant Movie this is.
Yes, this is the Movie, not an Edit or anything, because both Movies compliment each other now.
The missing background from Dunkirk is here now and the emotions thru that, are even higher now.

Flawless cutting and editing.
As you can see, my second rewiev on the same Movie because this is my go to Version now.

Loved both these movies but after watching this definitely believe that it's an improvement to both. Darkest Hour improved with the pace and Dunkirk originally lacked background. A brilliant edit and the picture/sound quality was exceptional.

All this effort and for what ??
For a very good watch !!!

This is a very good and very enjoyable edit. It moves very good between the movies, cuts here and there and still you see the whole picture without as much as a crack. Very smoothly.
I like both Originals very much, and bringin them together is as Bold as it clever.

The Storyline makes sense, and you see the Political side as well as the "felt" side, beeing the Soldiers that had to live with each and every decision made for them.
I agree with one of my fellow reviewers: It never feels like two movies mashed together, but a well though out storyline.

I will watch both films as individuals again at some point and i will revisit this one too.
Brilliant achievement !
