Atom User Reviews for Midway
I cried 20 minutes in. such a heart wrenching, breath holding, action packed incredible movie. instantly top of my list. hopefully this reawakened the lost patriotism and respect my generation doesnt seem to appreciate anymore.
The way the story was told, it was as if you were there. Your heart hurt for the soliders as they were lost. For someone who was not born yet it was eye opening to see what our soldiers did back then for us today.
I went into it thinking it was going to be a simple movie about WWII but was I wrong. this movie was epicly AMAZING. I plan on buying it once it comes out
This was great! So many great actors definitely a theater movie!
Great movie. Had a great focus on the facts and didn’t stray away from the events. Worth watching
I love war movies based on true stories. This one by far is the best one I have ever seen besides Pearl Harbor. If you want to learn more about the attack in Pearl Harbor I highly suggest you to go see this movie it is definitely worth the money well spent!
Will be buying this movie
One of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.
movie was amazing! and i love the fact that they did their best to stay historically accurate.
Excellent and great movie. I’ll watch it again anytime and recommend to everyone.
Awesome movie!!! Do yourself a favor and go see it.
I love me some war films. This one did not fail and I really enjoyed it. Will be getting this to add to my War film collection.
it ok not that good could be better
Wanting to honour history, Midway proves to be an oddly polite war film, afraid to be too exciting lest it interfere with the solemn tone.
Wes Tooke offers stiff dialogue and sometimes oddly structured action, leaving much dramatic potential unexploited. Yes, Emmerich stages plenty of aerial battles in which fighter pilots plunge through hailstorms of sizzling projectiles. But those hoping to get a thrill would be better served by revisiting his Earth-vs-aliens war flick Independence Day.
Like many of Emmerich’s movies, even the better ones, Midway loses sight of the humanity inside its vast vistas of devastation. It’s a giant film with a very small impact.
