    A big, brassy Hollywood history lesson of the sort we so rarely see these days. Incredible action but it's the performances that really separate this one from the pack; Joe Jonas is a revelation.

    Cgi looked like something out of a computer game. After waiting 42 years for a remake you think the time would have been put into a better remake but but what one gets is a rather silly flourish of explosions and clusters of planes that looks more like star wars with tie fighters and rebels flying around the death star. Maybe they will get down to basics and make a real film using real planes and spend more time on the truly interesting point of Midway which would be the Japanese operational plan and their perspective. Instead what one gets is a love story, cgi phantasmagoria and what appears to be a spin off from Pearl Harbor. Next time, next time, if there is one, do it right and don't disappoint the fans and the history buffs and those who wish to see something more than a computer game.
