The script is confusing and messy, with attention exclusively paid to the strategic problems of both sides, and its development is crude, dry, and boring. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
El Pais (Spain)
Rating: 4/5 -- has the decency to devote the majority of the film to the actual events, and not get bogged down in a fictitious, smarmy love affair. Full Review
To make an uninvolving movie out of one of the most decisive battles of the Second World War may seem a dubious challenge, but there's no denying Universal their full credit in meeting it. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- Rather dull, although certainly elaborate enough
Rating: 7/10 -- Charlton Heston at his restrained yet forceful best. Full Review
Rating: 78/100 -- If the movie drags a bit in the dramatics department, that's probably because the filmmakers were shooting for 'accuracy' over 'emotion'.
[Midway] builds up a lot of tension about that battle, but delivers nothing new. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
A star-studded World War II drama about the great air and naval battle in which the underdog Yanks--outnumbered by the huge Japanese flotilla--won American military supremacy in the Pacific. Leading them to their heroic victory is Admiral Nimitz and Captain Matt Garth, the latter a junior officer whose life is complicated by his son's romance with a Japanese-American girl.
