The film "Battle of Midway" is one of the many classic war films showing desperation, courage and tactics winning over numerical advantage. The film also has many, fantastic aerial dogfight sceens, is historically acurate, and where possible, original footage from the Pacific war theatre is used to give the film a sense of authenticity. The all-star cast makes the film a classic, and makes the characters roles easily accessable to the watcher. Some of the film is repeated , and some of the aircraft in the original film segments are not those seen on the film set, but a slight inacuracy is a small price to pay for the high standard of the rest of the film. The film also gives a fair view of both the sides who are fighting, and this is good as it makes analysing the film from both sides easy, and does justice to both the commanders and men on both sides whatever thier nationallity. This film has suspense from beginning to end, and action is never far off. Even the titles are more than just names. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, and recommend it!
