This is a good movie that suffers from the comparison problem. It's a pretty high bar for those interested in world war II movies to leap over the original 1976 Midway. The original had Charlton Heston, Henry Fonda, Glenn Ford, Robert Michum, Robert Wagner amount others. The ensemble cast was a who's who of Hollywood legends. So, set that aside if you, like me, grew up with your dad watching the movie.
The 2019 movie was well paced. The cast clicked pretty good. And Dennis Quaid and Woody Harrelson have really grown in their craft over the years. They both have a history of goofy comedic roles. It was nice to see them both in serious roles here. And I thought they both pulled it off.
The movie did a good job of stressing just how important this battle was in WW II. The special effects were good too.
I enjoyed it and will keep it in my movie library.
