MIDWAY centers on the Battle of Midway, a clash between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy which marked a pivotal turning point in the Pacific Theater during WWII. The film, based on the real-life events of this heroic feat, tells the story of the leaders and soldiers who used their instincts, fortitude and bravery to overcome the odds.
The Doolittle raid caused little damage, and had no strategic importance. However, it was a huge morale boost to U.S. forces, and a major blow to the morale of the Japanese military, who felt their home islands were impenetrable. While these two reasons are partial causes they do not represent the basic reasoning for the Midway attack. See more »
In the Order of Battle VT-8 (TBD torpedo planes) from Hornet attacked first, not VT-6 torpedo planes from Enterprise. Yorktown's VT-3 attacked last and actually had fighter cover from VF-3 commanded by CDR John Thatch. See more »
Critics are trashing this film, I went into it skeptical. After, I'm not so sure why. They tell a simplified story of the events leading up to, and eventually the battle of midway. You get to see two sides of life, the Japanese and the American forces. The script is fine, acting is pretty good in my opinion as well (shout out to Dennis Quaid, he is a great salty kinda guy). CGI was not that bad, especially for fast paced scenes. Only complaint is it is a bit long, which I understand due to how much they wanted to include. But there were 2-3 times I thought it might end, but there were still a few minutes left. In the end, a solid war movie that, in my opinion, does a great job showing some brutality of war, in addition to brothership and slice of life of the time. A solid film to honor the brave men and women that died for a better future.
