    The main problem I had with this movie was that it lacked the edginess, character development and historical detail of other war movies. The characters selected for the key roles often felt bland and misplaced. For example, selecting Woody Harrelson to play Chester Nimitz seemed like a poor choice. He is simply too youthful and mundane for such a role. Also, key tactical elements, such as determining the intended location of the Japanese invasion were just sort of dropped in, without any buildup or drama to accentuate their significance. The special effects were cool, but I like the version with Henry Fonda and Carlton Heston more.
  • Great Movie!

    I thought “Pearl Harbor” was a turgid mess, but “Midway” has come along and usurped it. CGI was a lame effort ,characters that I couldn’t relate, understand, or even believe in—back story that never fully developed. I would have stopped watching after 25 minutes , but considering I spent $5.99 on it was determined to suffer through it. Additionally, I can’t stand it when a film throws physics, aerodynamics, and, well...basic common sense out the window. Oh hey, let’s pull out of a steep bombing dive at 500’ AGL and NOT overstress the aircraft OR auger into the flight deck. And hey, we did it all without blacking out without being completely shredded by flak. The original “Midway” with Charlton Heston is still the best and most watchable film on this important naval battle.
  • Terrible direction.

    This director certainly has a blind spot (or love) for overacting. I mean, wow. I have never seen anything that bad ever. And there were huge gaps in the editing. Terrible movie with good actors being directed, scripted badly.
  • Absolute drivel

    This movie is so much Hollywood fluff that saying it is historical in any fashion should be criminal. Take you standard war cliche and magnify it to absurd levels and you have this steaming pile of trash. It would need an upgrade to earn one star.
  • Another cheap one from Hollywood.

    What’s wrong with Hollywood these days? The battle who twisted the history not only of the ww2 but the world and Hollywood have nothing else to show?
