Highly Suspect Reviews: Midway

Midway Movie Review


Or as we like to call it, Pearl Harbor 2: The Revenge. Ok, sure this is Roland Emmerich who is decidedly not a director known for nuance, but with his film about the WWII Battle of Midway, he took a somewhat different tack than we expected. No, this isn’t a companion piece to Michael Bay’s execrable Pearl Harbor film, despite the easy jokes. Emmerich has pointed his film firmly at trying to create a very old-school type WWII film and on that note at least, he does succeed. Whether that’s something you want to see is an entirely different question. Join Chris, Marco Noyola, Michael Van Slyke, and Marcos Lira on this review and find out whether you need a little Midway in your life.
