Midway


Midway
The battle of Midway took place six months after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbour, and is considered the turning point in the Pacific theatre. The clash around Midway Island between the American fleet and the Imperial Japanese Navy is naturally told from the American point of view, and features Emmerich’s trademark big-budget action and special effects.

138 minutes.

Tomatometer quote iconMidway revisits a well-known story with modern special effects and a more balanced point of view, but its screenplay isn’t quite ready for battle.

Joyce Slaton quote iconBattle epic tries hard but is too long, hard to follow.

ScreenIt
Jim Judy quote iconFeaturing and favoring spectacle over character and story substance -- even while honoring those who served with plenty of rah-rah patriotism to go around -- Midway certainly isn't a bomb, but four decades from now, kids turned middle-aged adults will be hard-pressed to recall what actors appeared in it and who they played.
