Just been watching the 2019 version of Midway which is a bit of a CGI fest.It’s pure Hollywood with stirring music as they all go back out to get the last carrier and the Japanese crew are on their best stereotypical bowing behaviour. Brave men going after the Japs in outdated aircraft but I felt the film didn’t need all the schmaltzy bravado.
The original was on the other day
Far better IMHO no schmaltz just the film based on the facts
I often think those old films are better because the people who took part were not only still alive but many acted as technical advisors
