    Great movie! Very realistic movie! Better than the 1976 "Midway" movie! My dad was a Navy doctor working on a hospital ship in the Pacific during WWII.

    Acting and cast are great. Best battle scenes ever done. You feel like you actually there. All the passion and heroics make the audience cheer. Very accurate and done on location. Oscars all around.

    Yes, very good...as a WW2 buff it is impossible to put everything from that period in perspective as in the totally different perspectives of Japanese culture in war and the American way of fighting a war. Really a huge turning point in the Pacific and the downfall of Japans Navy. They condensed a hug chunk of history into a movie... well done. A tragedy for both young American and Japanese men but an entertaining movie.

    Effect were great but too much information dumped into one movie. Pearl, Doolittle and Coral Sea give some back group, but have nothing to do with Midway other than tactics gained from the previous battles.

    Action kept you on the edge of your seat. Great overview of historical events. Turns out the reviewer that gave it one star in the paper didn't have a clue of what it's like to be in the military.

    Response to Reviewer: Doolittle Raid had nothing to do with Midway. 3 points of this short segment. - 1. give credit to Jimmy Doolittle & his men, 2. Hit the heart of Japan , (a first)showing them they're not invulnerable, 3. Bombers taking off an aircraft carrier (a first). The significance , of these air/sea battles demonstrated naval air power & is the way of the future. . Previously the battleship was the star of a countries naval power. Big ship to ship sea battles gradually diminished giving way to Naval air power. Today, the Aircraft Carrier Rules the seas. Today, the Carrier (not the battleship)sits center stage of a naval battle group. All the ships surrounding her, is to support or/& protect her..With no exceptions - this is a great movie. It showed war from many different perspectives: strategy & intelligence, (both sides)courage, very realistic air combat, what spouses had to go thru etc. And without the gore. That was demonstrated only verbally when the doctor said we're putting "body-parts in pillow cases. This is a great tribute to the military & should be seen by all. (and without bias) rh

    I liked the heroism they portrayed. My father fought in the Pacific in WWII so I can relate to the story. I was absorbed by the story.

    Acting is super. Very realistic war action. It shows how dangerous being in WW2 is. War is war & that means bullets & bombs & injury/death. Movie rating is in the eye of the beholder. Glad there are positive reviews by those who saw the movie. Still question why many movie critics gave an average rating. No this is not a so-so movie...it's high action & when the plane drops it's bomb & pulls up ya can nearly feel the G forces in your theatre seat. Heart rate increases many times ....great movie.
