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 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!

All in all, it was good. Definitely entertaining. If you are going to see this for entertainment, and not as a military history buff, or a Navy Veteran/Active Navy, it absolutely takes care of that. A lot of liberties were taken with making this movie.

A nice action packed, inspirational war movie. It's no Saving Private Ryan, but it'll get a few Murica chants started.

Seemed a bit of a jumble and I couldn’t always be sure what I was seeing, but it was enjoyable and, I’m hoping, informative (that is, I hope the makers didn’t take too many liberties with the truth).

I was pleasantly surprised. Moving and action packed film with tons of great actors and gave insight into the war in the Pacific which I've never known much about other than Pearl Harbor. Definitely see it.

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.
