The movie is terrible. Watched it back to back with Pearl Harbor a couple of weeks ago and it made latter seem like a masterpiece.
Putting the quality of the movie aside these two movies also show what a CGI fest Hollywood has become. Whereas most of Pearl Harbor was hand carfted Midway seems to have been shot in front of green screen entirely down to the simple backgrounds. It's HORRIBLE.
I like it. Already got the Scanavo slip, so not sure I'll be double dipping, probably not. But good job The On with that steel, except for "based on real events". It is absolutely ludicrous they have to specify that.
