    Midway Movie (2019)

    I can thoroughly recommend the new 2019 movie Midway to those who are interested in the subject. I am a person who studies the subject. At this point, I have read probably more than fifteen books on the subject including Gordon Prangue's Miracle at Midway and the new monograph, Never Call Me a Hero by Jack Kleiss, a Dauntless pilot who flew in the battle and scored hits on two aircraft carriers that day and on a cruiser as well before the battle was over.

    There was just enough human interest in the movie to make it human. There were some technical errors but there always are. The was a bunch of CGI but none of the stupid non-ballistic Star Wars movements that hampered Red Tails and many other CGI movies and the CGI was, frankly, believable. There was no sex. There were few invented characters.

    I expect this movie will turn into a litmus test for viewers in that the movie makers seem to believe in real people who step up to the plate and do what has to be done. There's no nihilism, none of that "life's a b---- and then you die" crap. Just an attempt to portray the events accurately and in a way that maintains interest.

    In my humble opinion it is worth your while and worth your money. I plan it add it to my collection.

    Bob

    I agree completely with Bob.

    My wife and I saw it today and thoroughly enjoyed it.



    Worth seeing on a large screen.
