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.

Midway [Includes Digital Copy] [4K Ultra HD Blu-ray/Blu-ray] 
i sort of stop buying movies ,, but i broke rank and got this ,, because it is a 4k , and since bestbuy made me buy a 4k tv , by putting one on sale for 150 bucks ,, i then got this movie ..
, so i now had to see now how good 4k is ,, i had a feeling that there were cgi ,, lot of cgi in this movie and of course it was profuse .. essentially in the war actions .. and i wanted to see how good it did the flying .. to be believable . but of course to see how good it was to being a true story... As of now i 've only watch it once without hooking it up to my stereo ,, ,
so i enjoyed being entertained for a couple of hours .. next time will hoook up the stereo to see how good the sound is ,,, as i read 4k movies reviews that there is a big difference ... i bet if i would have my blueray setup and the 4k setup playing at the same time side by side ,, i would see a difference in picture quality .. but since i only watch one or the other ,, i bet you can't tell or would never notice any difference .. so for now i just have new toys to play with ,, and i am not a fanatic on details ,, but do enjoy being taken to another time or place and forget i had a current life .. and this movie did that ..
as for quality of a 4k movie ,, i posted a picture taken with my camera and was impressed by the sharpness and quality ,, typically i see blocks or sections of the image in the pictures iwth a tv ,,, but i was really happy to see a nice sharp detailed image ,, i donna know if it is the 4k tv or the 4k movie that made it like that .. but it did give more satisfaction now that i upgraded to a 4k system now .. my next posting review will be for another different 4k movie ,,, where i will watch with my sound system too ..
if you want a review of this whole movie ,, read all the other reviews posted here ...
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.

Midway in 4k is a masterpiece
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
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.

Good movie. Nice depiction of events that can occur during a war.
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.
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.
A:AnswerMine had it. Interesting decision though whether to include this in the story of Midway. There is a convincing argument that the Doolittle raid is what compelled the Japanese to move forward with the very complex Midway operation, however, so I think its appropriate to include it in the run up to the main story.
