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] [Blu-ray/DVD] 
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.

I have been an aviation historian for over three decades, and this film did an amazing job capturing the events leading up to and including the battle of Midway. Aside from a few nitpicks with things that most people will never notice (aircraft insignia incorrect for certain time periods, etc.) this was a highly accurate depiction of one of the most important battles in U.S. history. WATCH THIS!
This movie was very well done and did a great job of using modern special effects magic to help capture the feel of the early 1940's time period. The movie is a condensed summary of the lead up to, and execution of the battle of Midway. A history buff will easily enjoy filling in additional details while watching, and other viewers will get enough of the historical development to understand the events and important impact of the battle. Both will certainly enjoy a great movie. I liked the way the director tried to match his actors closely to their character roles. The plot, action, special effects, and war scenes were terrific. Well done.
This is an honorable attempt at a depiction of America's greatest naval victory. The drama drives the story but I didn't get a sense of the true events being a focus. It's more CGI and explosions than a sense of what sacrifices were made by our greatest generation of young men. It's not a bad film but I feel like it missed a huge opportunity to be something greater. I also feel like the film was shaved down on run time as some things that took place weren't followed up. There is a scene when the American Sub The Nautilus was with in an armada of the Japanese fleet attempting to sink an aircraft carrier but we never see anything regarding the Nautilus after the scene.
Overall I'm happy with the purchase, the 4k version is fantastic and worth the buy. The cast is excellent and the story is solid for the way it's told.
Right at the start of the video it is filled with five previews of upcoming releases. We shouldn't have to watch all that advertising. A pet peeve.
Overall the movie is good but you have to get used to the computer generated graphics especially in the opening battle sequence. The studios tend go overboard in this respect. The sound through my home theater system is excellent.
I have the Blue Ray version.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Involving WWII Action Movie that Got it Right
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
I missed this one in the theaters but a beautiful steelbook with unique slipcase, historical movie and what I anticipate to be a very active soundtrack caused me to take a blind buy chance on this one. I am glad I did. I was constantly fact checking as I watched and was surprised on the accuracy presented. The characters had me engaged and the surround sound and 4K presentation were top notch. Recommended.
History tasks a back seat to effects and loud soun
Owned for 1 week when reviewed.
4K Picture quality shows an excellent level of details, and the many computer generated effects blend seamlessly with live action footage.
The problem that I have with such CG heavy films is that, much like the average Michael Bay movie, they often lose the human element in favor flag-bang look how awesome these effects are. This isn't a Michael Bay movie, but it has all the hallmarks.
That said it is a fine diversion with great picture and active audio that will have you ducking for cover!
...still, the originalb1976 film of the same name did it better, with practical effects and a cast of cinematic icons
I recently viewed a documentary on THC about
the battle at Midway. This movie follows the battle to the letter.
I collect films from all the wars we’ve been in.
This is a great addition to my library.
Now I’m waiting for “1917” to be released to add to my collection. Again, a gripping story
from the journal kept by the main character of the story. Amazing cinematography.
