Critic Consensus: Midway revisits a well-known story with modern special effects and a more balanced point of view, but its screenplay isn't quite ready for battle.

Critic Reviews for Midway
Why did Emmerich want to remake this battle, 77 years after the fact, if he did not have enough money?... We didn't need a new one, unless he had something new to say or a new way to say it. To both questions, the answer is no.
...there's still a sizeable audience ready to experience, from the comfort of a cinema seat, a skilfully made approximation of what the Allies had to face in the horror that was World War II.
Midway asks very little of its audience aside from mindless military worship and purposeless nostalgia.
The digitized combat looks like something traced and transplanted from another war, one that took place in a galaxy far, far away.
There wasn't any tension or suspense, and by the time things came to an end I was almost thankful the movie was over.
