"Dunkirk" is a must-see summer movie, according to the movie critics tweeting about it.

The full reviews aren't even out yet, but critics who have seen Christopher Nolan's World War II drama set in France are giving it major props in 140-characters or less.

"Dunkirk," which stars Mark Rylance, Harry Styles, Kenneth Branagh, James D’Arcy, Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy, is receiving high praise for its score, the powerful imagery and sequences, plus great performances from actors who are given very little dialogue.

"Dunkirk" follows the lives of troops from Belgium, Canada, Britain, and France as they cope with the world war surrounding them. When Germany advances into France in May of 1940 and traps the Allies on the beaches of Dunkirk, troops evacuate using every serviceable naval and civilian vessel they can find.

Take a look at the early reactions to see why critics are calling it "brilliant," "thrilling" and even "beautiful."

Editor of Collider Steve Weintraub also chimed in on the action-packed drama, tweeting Monday that it was "absolutely worth the [money]."

"Dunkirk is edge of your seat filmmaking that’s fully realized in @IMAX. Can honestly say I’ve never seen anything like it. See this in IMAX!" he posted. "A lot of people were wondering about @harry_styles & unknown cast. They’re all great but Dunkirk is not about any one solider."

Weintraub went on to say "Dunkirk" was the product of "another brilliant collaboration between Nolan & @HansZimmer. The way he mixes in a ticking clock with score is nail biting."
