Hollywood’s top military historians are up in arms over the lack of Americans in the new film ‘Dunkirk’.
The film, which features some bunch of Limeys nobody has ever heard of, has been singled out for lacking realism and credibility by not showing Americans as the heroes.
American reviewers described feeling ‘robbed’ after the film failed to show any of their countrymen in a heroic, leading role, leading to accusations of ‘Britwashing’ the Second World War to make it look like anyone other than the USA was involved.
Dunkirk has been described as a ‘travesty’ of history, with reviewers suggesting its accuracy could be improved by Tom Cruise skydiving onto a Messerschmitt and stealing it by throwing the pilot out.
“This film would have been improved by a platoon of GIs charging up the beach and shooting Hitler, rather than some bunch of Brits running down the beach away from him,” said senior Hollywood historical consultant Simon-Bob Williams.
“Nobody in their right mind would deny that would have been more true-to-life and historically accurate.
“My next project will be a big-budget historical drama about the battle of the Somme, featuring Ryan Reynolds as a tough marine who wins the fight and gets the girl after he punches the Kaiser in the face.”NT
