In 1942, a few months after the infamous Pearl Harbor attack and a few years before World War II ended, the Japanese forces were once again planning to stage a sudden attack against their opponents this time near the Midway Atoll. Their plan, however, was intercepted, and the American forces arrived at the Pacific Ocean theater just in time to stop them. The battle lasted for three days, and its outcome became a critical turning point in the ongoing war. The film stars Woody Harrelson, Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Aaron Eckhart, and Nick Jonas. Directed by Roland Emmerich.
I should have seen this in the theater, but did not. I saw it on a 55" LG OLED TV with a surround system with Harman Kardon Tuner and Klipsch speakers.
The story is great, the cinematography is excellent and the sound will kick you out of your seats. I did not have the sound cranked, but it felt like I was there! I thought all of the technical aspects of the film were outstanding. I enjoyed the story and the history and the acting was good.
I am a big fan of military history and war films, so I did expect to enjoy this film. It was a very immersive experience.
This movie was excellent. Filmed in the "vibe" of "Tora-"Tora "Tora" simply a masterpiece. Like most historians, we all hated the crummy Pearl Harbor movie that came out over ten years ago. The movie was bogged down with some crummy three way love story. It never told the true story! Midway succeeds perfectly in telling the truth. The 4k Dolby Atmos presentation is clean and bright. With outstanding sound.
Nice modern film version with better with CGI effects as compared to the original live action Midway film.
Some key notes:
Midway (1976): Two “Japanese” carriers seconds before the American dive bomber attacks. It looks more like a parade than general quarters.
Midway (2019): A Japanese carrier and escorting ships maneuver under the pressure of attacking American dive bombers.
This newer film makes it more like you are part of the action. Definately one of my top 10 WWII war films.
Great to have in my video library with the nice steelbook case.
Meant for longer keeping.
See Photos from the web site medium.com as they compared old film to this new one.
Just a very good war movie that stuck to the facts
Owned for 1 month when reviewed.
I've seen-watch most war movies made, just have & collected many of them. Midway (new-one) is one of the best, visually, factually & breaks your heart, my daughter was in tear watching Torp 8 fall into the sea. Strongly recommend the movie.
really great movie and fight scenes.the only reason I gave it four stars is because I think I got back bad copy it seems to freeze towards the end my 4k player is relatively new (4 monthes with software update).other than that a must buy the action starts fast.
A:AnswerYou can use a streaming service to watch the movie. My Favorite is VUDU. It has all my digital copies stored in one place and I do not have to pull the disk out to watch it. You can use a game platform (xbox, playstation) most newer blu ray players, and/or a smart TV to use Netflix, Amazon prime, VUDU or many other streaming services.
