    Described only as special effects of no real remark with whatever actors happened to be available at the time.

    It's been Hollywooded to high heck, the planes shoot laser-beams and somebody thought it would be constructive to consult Micheal Bay for the explosions, honestly as a history buff, I'm tired of naive modern directors adapting something they have no business speaking about

    The miscasting, the script, the scene to scene cuts, left me feeling dry. There was no deep emotion set into this film. Where were the what American actors? The action and story were ok, but those are historical events so it’s easy to put together. How is this a 92%?!

    What a crappy movie! They used every movie cliche there is. Screen writers who wrote this script should be banned from writing.

    I found it, unexpectedly, to be nicely balanced between the action scenes and the human drama. Found myself really drawn into it. The actors really convinced, even those who had only a minute of screentime. OK granted, too many not that great cgi scenes, but where do you find a host of well-conserved WW2 airplanes nowadays, the pilots to fly them, a few aircraftcarriers and the sailors to man them ? Right... For those critics complaining that the film had nothing new to offer, I'd say: take another look at some of the characters and I'd say especially: so what ? Every movie in the universe has had makeovers every decade or so, from Spiderman- which you hallowed and I found shitty compared to the original- to Blade Runner..

    At times feeling contrived, this film lacks any special "something" to set it apart from other WWII films. The relationships between the primary characters are left unexplored, and cut scenes showing families and loved ones feel forced. The special effects are ace, and the battle scenes are fun. A Lazy Sunday type of film.

    I'm glad I don't listen to the movie critics anymore. They are a bunch of Karens writing for the other Karens. great movie! Sounded awesome too! Great crew of actors too!

    Relied heavily on CGI. A cross between Pearl Harbour and a computer game but still worth watching.

    I understand that the story of the battle of midway has been told multiple times, but I personally think this is one of the best movies of the battle of midway. The acting and the writing were sublime. It is pretty historically accurate despite a few "Hollywood" aspects.
