Midway

Critics Consensus

Midway revisits a well-known story with modern special effects and a more balanced point of view, but its screenplay isn't quite ready for battle.

All Critics (124) | Top Critics (25) | Fresh (53) | Rotten (71)

  • It has the tone, mostly, of kids' TV. Or a poor, very poor, supplementary video for a history GCSE.

  • It's hard to imagine, if you've already seen a film like Pearl Harbor, why you would need to see Midway.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Midway is a choppy bore, its main source of intrigue centred around whatever New Jersey-ese accent British actor Ed Skrein is attempting as dive bomber Richard Best.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • "Midway" is a rollicking war film. HIstory buffs need not apply.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • "Midway" tells a story that's vividly and viscerally rendered, with all the entertainment value of a big, old-fashioned war movie, cutting back and forth between the home front and front line.

    Nov 8, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • The film is filled with characters, with only a couple fleshed out in any real way, the rest just faces and sometimes names. The result is a movie about a dramatic battle that's strangely bloodless and unemotional.
