[5.50/10] Midway (2019)

Midway (2019)

Quick Review: It's shot with an old- fashioned vibe that fits the era, and though heavily digitized, the aircraft and warship fights are spectacular, if tad overblown, but despite its fairly thrilling action scenes, and its grand ambitions to recreate the historical battle with crashing effect, "Midway" ends up as an uneven, often messy naval war movie, overcrowded with undeveloped characters, the latter of which prevents any member of its ensemble cast to stand out, due to their limited screen time.

It seemed like it would be a jumbled mess. And possibly another Pearl Harbor. (Which was a total disaster.)

Exactly. It was unnecessary to begin with.
