Movie Reviews

Decent, but not the advertised film. Contains alternate ver
J. Martin | 06/23/2010
(2 out of 5 stars)

"Bottom line: This is not the advertised movie. This is a new edit of the 1968 theatrical release which has removed a signifigant portion of the film. While the underlying story is the same, and the film is composed entirely of the 1968 version's footage, be warned that you can't judge this one by its cover- it really isn't what it claims to be.

I was unsure how to rate this as my main complaint is not the content per se but rather the fact that the content is not what is advertised. They should not sell this as they are without disclosing prominently to every prospective purchaser that this is a shorter re-edited version of the theatrical release. Whatever the merits of the decision to re-edit the film, their is no excuse for releasing it under the same title without fair warning to purchasers."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a retired army officer and an adjunct history professor I thought it was important to review what I consider the best war movies depicting the challenges of leadership and the command of men.

The biopic "Midway" is one of the best movies showing how important it is for good leaders to deceive their enemy by being were they are least expected, and using this element of surprise to enable an inferior force defeat a superior force. This concept is expertly portrayed in the film through the character of Admiral Chester Nimitz (Henry Fonda). By having his intelligence staff give him enough information on the whereabouts of the Japanese fleet; Nimitz was able to lay a trap and destroy the effectiveness of the Japanese fleet for the rest of the war. From that time period on the Japanese were on the defense. This movie has an all star cast but they do not overshadow the importance of this epic naval story!

Like the "Longest Day," this is a great movie showing the leadership challenges of conducting such a large military operation.
