Midway new movie

Have someone already seen this new movie?
Looking at trailers, it seems to be a big jumble of unrealistic Computer Graphics... :roll:

I saw it the day after it came out. Just remember it's a movie. I never knew a Dauntless Dive Bomber handled like a Zero. A very nimble aircraft with an outstanding climb rate lol. (just my opinion).

I would agree with that. Until the Hellcat came out nothing could turn with the Zero. Its one weakness was its lack of armour, which enabled its manoeuvrability but that if you hit it you had a better chance of it going down than almost any other plane.

I've seen the movie and I thought it was a pretty good telling of the events leading up to Midway and then the battle itself. True, there are many technical inaccuracies that I've noticed, but in the end, it was a really good movie. I would definitely recommend seeing it.
