Re: Midway movie
I agree with the comments above, in that most of the audience will take the film at face value and either enjoy it or not.
No one has mentioned Japanese planes on the carrier's decks at the time of the attack so maybe they got that right.
What troubles me about a film like this that those who don't know any history will regard all of this as hard fact.
I'm suspicious because Hollywood always messes things up. And there is no mention of what they are basing the movie on.
However the movie covers the period from Pearl Harbor through Midway and I suspect the scenes with the twin engined bombers are showing one of the carrier raids, perhaps the fight when the Lexington tried to raid Rabaul.
Has anyone else seen trailers yet? If so, did anyone else notice the participation of twin-engine Japanese a/c in some of the shots? The special effects look great but I'm anticipating a technical disaster.... sigh.
