I think St Louis Post Dispatch gave it a positive but not a high rating
Just read it. Probably will be rated around 70 by the MC editors.
St Louis Post Dispatch:
This is all not to say “Dunkirk” isn’t a solid, well-crafted war movie, but it does fall short of Nolan’s own sky-high standards. It’s also the first Nolan movie where I walked out of the theater without having to do at least a little bit of thinking.
“Dunkirk” is a faithful and well-crafted retelling of an overlooked, but crucial, event in World War II, which is enough to make it worth your time. But it isn’t anything beyond that; which, I must confess, is a bit disappointing.

Plot and twists are very superficial most of the time and I hate when people go around acting like Inception and Memento are some super deep films just because of the concept and twists.
That is not the only reason people might think they have depth to them. There are a lot of ideas in those two movies, not just crazy structure.
Memento really makes you appreciate how fragile the human mind is. Imagine going through life in the same way Leonard does. There are people out there who actually live the reality of that movie. We all take it for granted that we will remember very basic things in our lives, but you think about people with Leonard's condition or other disorders (Alzheimers, dementia, etc). Very very sad and also very scary to think it could happen to any of us.
