Appreciating Midway

Do yourself and your kids and grandkids a favor this holiday season: take them to see Midway.  It’s an amazing story of valor, self-sacrifice, and bravery.  It’s a story of men at their very finest.  Dive-bomber pilot Dick Best is shown sliding a black-and-white photo of his wife and daughter underneath the edge of a gauge in his cockpit before each battle.

The “edge of your seat” special effects are too much for popcorn.  It’s a short and powerful two-and-a-half-hour movie.  It ranks alongside Patton and Saving Private Ryan as a great World War II film, although you may have reservations if you just go online and check out the reviews — mostly two or three stars.

Overly long and overstuffed with both characters and battle scenes, this film (based on the same-named 1976 movie) clearly has its heart in the right place, but it’s not much fun to watch.

Midway is a deeply inspiring movie. It’s also a war movie, though, with all of the content that comes with it.
