    War movies used to have dash and color and a certain corny sentimentality; Midway hardly even makes us care. show more

    Vincent CanbyThe New York Times

    Midway solemnly cross-cuts between the war councils, chart rooms and communications offices on the American side and those on the Japanese side, with characters, who often have to be identified by subtitles, laboriously trying to give us all of the exposition necessary to make the battle coherent. There's no way to act such roles. show more
