Always loved a good war film, don't even mind if they put a bit of a love story in as well a la "Pearl Harbor".
They made a big thing of there not being any love stuff in this, so in the main, we have a proper war movie.
Midway is ok but not fantastic. I found it a little repetitive and this actual event and story deserves a bit better telling in my opinion.
The CGI is mainly good, some things are not as good as others and the acting is ok although to me some emotion was missing throughout.
The original 70's version with Henry Fonda and Charlton Heston rated similarly but I still slightly prefer that.
