Midway (2019) | Amazon
Directed by Roland Emmerich. With Ed Skrein, Patrick Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Luke Evans. The story of the Battle of Midway, told by the leaders and the sailors who fought it.
I went in fully expecting this to be a mess of a movie with inaccuracies and oddly inserted love stories, but what I got was a heartfelt, well done, and mostly true retelling of the Midway confrontation during WW2. Because they didn’t stray too far from the truth, the actual Midway battle only gets started about an hour into the film, there’s just too much that has to be set up before the battle can take place.
There’s an unfortunate amount of noticeable CGI in the film, but other than a couple weirdly phrased lines (“There’s the man that tried to warn us all of the attack!”), this is a fantastic movie.Favorite This!
