Midway on Prime.
I saw the trailer and was a bit sceptical as it looked a bit like "Pearl Harbour" and in fairness there are some similarities, it has the same look and feel at times visually. However this is a much better film, not perfect, but nowhere as toe curling with the awful love story shash they added to get the ladies into the cinema.
The battle scenes are a bit overdone in places and the Zeroes attacking the US planes seemed a bit crammed together but It's a modern film and CGI can fill the frame with stuff you could never do with real aircraft so I don't hold it against them, it's how modern cinema is. It's creating a visual spectacle after all and they don't use stock footage.
The narrative for the Midway battle was not as in depth as I'd have hoped but they did manage to tell the story right from the Pearl Harbour attack, through the Doolittle raid and the Coral Sea battle beforehand, so kudos for fitting all that in to one film.
Worth a watch if you have a free afternoon/evening to kill.
I watched it the other day thought it was all right as you say worth a watch
Question for the experts.
At the end one of the blokes jumps in a Jeep and drives off
Why would an American Jeep being driven in America have "Caution left hand drive" stencilled on the back in big white letters?
