December 20, 2019
A remarkable exercise of war cinema. [Full review in Spanish]
December 12, 2019
Midway is a film to give a new generation an important lesson in history; one that feels alive and one that will connect you with the heroes from The Battle of Midway.

Midway offers what Emmerich always promises, but with a bit more moderation. [Full Review in Spanish]
December 5, 2019
Everything here is gigantic and impressing. [Full review in Spanish]

In short: it's almost two hours and twenty minutes of display and pyrotechnics. [Full review in Spanish]
December 3, 2019
The great appeal of the film are the aerial battles, strengthened by excellent digital effects. [Full review in Spanish]
December 2, 2019
[The] effort is very worthy, but it conveys the same feeling as the rest of [Roland Emmerich's] approaches to 'serious' themes, such as Anonymous or the unfortunate Stonewall. [Full review in Spanish]

Roland Emmerich's "Midway" exceeds any reasonable expectations. It doesn't break any molds, but it's an earnest attempt at memorializing this historically significant event and its key contributors.
November 20, 2019
"Midway" is everything Pearl Harbor tried to be and missed.
November 20, 2019
It brings together a considerable ensemble against an action-packed backdrop, made with Emmerich's signature size and scope; yet for all its spectacle, and its noble story of camaraderie and heroism, it rarely touches the heart as it should.
November 15, 2019
Good historical recounting, and solid special effects highlight this movie. Where it fails is in giving audiences a personal story to latch onto.
November 14, 2019
It's not that [Midway is bad, per se - it's just a bit heavy-handed, both in terms of the CGI battle scenes and the interpersonal relationships.
November 14, 2019
Midway doesn't do anything new with the genre, but it does provide what the target audience wants and I enjoyed what it had to offer.
November 13, 2019
Still, history buffs will find much to like in this shamelessly corny, retro, relatively accurate, slam-bang war epic.
November 12, 2019
A blockbuster proud to be just that. [Full review in Spanish]
November 11, 2019
If all you take away from "Midway" is how terrible and awesome this battle truly was, then I would consider it a success, albeit a heavily qualified one.
November 11, 2019
As a bluntly told tale of a battle that turned the tide, this still gets the adrenaline pumping.
November 11, 2019
State-of-the-art visual effects have some dodgy moments, particularly early on, and the story-telling gets a bit confused. But the last hour is spectacular and gripping, albeit slightly lacking in emotional punch.
November 11, 2019
Though handicapped by its budget and occasionally rough effects work, Midway often offers satisfactory thrills.
November 11, 2019
It could have a been a lot more original and interesting, but if fighter planes and aircraft carriers are your thing, here you go. It's basically a 1940s movie with 2019 special effects.
