- One pilot's views of the Battle of Midway- December 23, 2019
This is based on the true story of the U.S. Navy"s Dauntless Dive Bombers and it's pilots. When I was a kid I use to build models of military items. The Dauntless was one of them. Is was a wonderful plane. This story line is about the Dauntless and about one pilot that got shot down early on in the battle and saw the whole Battle of Midway from the ocean in his life jacket. He saw some of his buddies go down and saw some of what some what some his buddies turn the tide of the war and sink ship after ship of the Japanese Navy. The special effects are great. If you are into this kind of movie and a little history, This is a must see.Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- Midway air battle & sea rescue/survival- November 11, 2019
A Midway air battle, which focuses on the US “bombing” squadrons and one crew in particular. CGI battle seas very good. Sea rescue and survival sequences are lengthy and viewer feels it. This is not an epic battle flick. This is a movie about the men in the “ bombing” squadrons: the fears and emotions as they prepare, engage and what happens to them. Based on true eventsYes, I would recommend this to a friend.
- SBD Shot down during Midway campaign- February 8, 2020
I was face palming thru the entire movie. First that 'Uplifting, cheery Music' as the U.S. planes launched and attacked had me cringing. Then the rather wooden acting as they used obvious cliches attempting to get the audience involved with the personalities of the searching flight crew and the downed airmen left me really not caring at the end.No, I would not recommend this to a friend.
