5 aircraft carriers for excellent: The story gave equal courage to American and Japanese warriors; it talked about how a race of US citizens were scapegoated for the war and tried to bridge the negativity- internment camp and end young solider and girl is the generation to join the indifference.
The " you sank my battle ship " scene in both countries are just building to the rational of the battles in sea; know I understand the board game.
The actual war footage merging with movie makes it that much alluring to watch. Don't forget the extra scenes in the menu You should not miss it.

It's nice to hear the huge radial piston engines of the bombers and the fighters. I would recommend "Midway" to the young generation who have never seen an aircraft carrier under air attack. It's quite interesting to see how an aircraft carrier defends itself against dive bombers and torpedo bombers. IMHO, I would rate "Midway" at 4.0 stars.

Midyway is one of my all-time favorite movies. This was about my 15th viewing and I liked it better than the last 14 because I learned to fast-forward through all scenes referring to Heston's son and his Japanese fiancé--which were insanely melodramatic, extremely boring, and entirely irrelevant.

A brilliant film in the same vein as the Longest Day, Battle of Britain and A Bridge Too Far- Midway is a classic. Multiple real stories, an excellent cast and great real airplanes ;) Highly recommended.
