Haven’t seen Midway myself. But, just heard on the radio a devastating one-star review by a professional film critic. Won’t repeat the specifics because it’s now obvious to me why the critic bashed the film. He must be a Blame-America-First zealot determined to limit the number of people who see this film during its theatrical run so as to limit, in turn, the number of red-blooded Americans who end up being positively affected by its patriotic message.
Can’t believe I almost fell for this ploy. Penance...Penance...Penance... :-)
I could definitely see how the hate America first crowd would not like this movie. The characters talked about stopping the Japanese - theres a few graphic scenes of violence perpetrated by the Japs, and the characters know, if they dont stop Japan in the Pacific, theyll be bombing coastal cities in the US. The movie is about saving America, when we were once a united country.
Rotten Tomatoes can be a fun site for reviews.
Midway was given a 40% by critics, 91% by audience scoring.
