So often on The War Movie Correspondent, I talk about fantastic war movies that can be found DVD, streaming or even on YouTube. But today, I’m going to change it up a bit and talk about the brand-new remake of Midway that is in theaters right now.
I wasn’t sure quite what to expect going in, but after watching it, I’m glad I went!
Figuring Out Japan’s Next Move
Depicting what is undoubtably one of the most important naval battles of WWII, the movie takes us on a journey through the attack of Pearl Harbor, to the raid by Doolittle, leading up to the actual battle itself.
The movie was a beautiful blend of action and a detective story of sorts, as the Americans desperately try to figure out Japan’s next move. It really brought out the history buff in me!
So if you’re looking for a riveting war movie to see with family and friends, check out Midway in a theater near you.
