I think to talk how to our time, it is important to remember history, and also the heroes of this story. Of course, with early childhood, people are already know 1939-1945 years — this is the beginning of the worst time in the history of mankind, and the name of this horror of World war II. She claimed the lives of more than 70 million and about 25 million were left permanently disabled. But we will always remember our saviors, those who gave it all so we lived, including her life. That is why in movies, TV shows, games and books are increasingly and often talk about the events of that terrible time. Different moments, as an unknown, so on a large scale and on which knows every single carry on screens "the Battle for the midway" not exception.

Midway — this is a major sea battle of World war II on the Pacific, which occurred in June 1942. The battle was a turning point in the war on the Pacific. The event went down in history as one of the main that is why the German film Director Roland Emmerich took on a task no children and a movie to remind the world of these heroes. Well and, of course, the main question, it is got it? Let's find out!

the film is very good and famous actor castes. In the main role was ed Skrein, who starred in such films as "of Maleficent: mistress of the dark" (2019), "Alita: Battle angel" (2019), "Deadpool" (2016).

The infamous Patrick Wilson. who starred in the films "the Curse of Annabelle, 3" (2019), the Conjuring (2013), "the Curse 2" (2016), "Insidious" (2010) "Insidious: Chapter 2" (2013), "Watchmen" (2009), "Aquaman" (2018), and also series Fargo.

This famous caste is not ends with the shooting was also attended by woody Harrelson, which is known for the movies: "Three of the Billboard on the border of Ebbing, Missouri" (2017), "Welcome to Zombilend" (2009), "Welcome to Zombilend: Control shot" (2019), "the Hunger Games" (2012), "the Hunger Games: catching fire" (2013), "the Hunger Games: mockingjay. Part I" (2014), "the Hunger Games: mockingjay. Part II" (2015), "the Illusion of Deception" (2013), "the Illusion of Deception 2" (2016).

And, perhaps, another actor — it Luke Evans you can see such films as "MA" (2019), "the Hobbit: the Desolation of Smaug" (2013), "the hobbit: the Battle of the five armies" (2014), "Anna" (2019).

Of course, that with this cast, consisting of Hollywood stars, the audience will ask a great and emotional game. To standing in the question: "Coped players from their roles?" — I answer: "Not very!".

The actors played, how could I can very very well. But is in this a minus, and a big, played well, only those people who has been named before, and others, among whom, too, have a couple of those you think other films, the feeling that only played for the money. They were unsolved, as if inanimate. Patrick Wilson woody Harrelson pulled the whole movie on their backs and all the drama, somehow I posted on Screen, which did not always retracing the same emotions. Yeah and the conclusion of this topic, the authors have gained really impressive and a very strong cast, which very well corresponds to the historical prototypes, but do nothing I could, more than half of the heroes stayed dead and obscure.

the Plot, as I think that was more or less good, but with its own characteristics. It covers not only the battle for midway, but and many previous events: attack on pearl Harbor, AVIARA James Doolittle on Tokyo, the interception of the cipher. Therefore in action introduce a lot of characters. And everything was shown very epic. From beginning all you sitting in one position with open from surprise a mouth and only the end of the exhale. It was incredible. Do I had a feeling that I'm one of characters are there. Us for two hours of the film shows an interesting material. Good conversations and most importantly, thoughtful, then shooting, on which is not ashamed to look as in most modern films, again the dialogue and shooting.

I would like to say a few words about shooting, explosions and dialogs. All the explosions, it is the special effects, done very well, are well drawn, they seem to real and also there is still some effect of operator, so as chosen beautiful views and types, creates a feeling that was removed from these points of action, so that those go to movie is for the impressive battle, for sure will be satisfied, but the truth is a few moments it was obvious that it was shot on green background in Studio, here is a small minus. Sometimes visible here the trash with a chroma key, especially in the beginning, where all eyes already cuts, also has a moment with fire, so to speak, on the fire very much saved.

Well, if the special effects are a little less then here for dialogs can be very hard to find fault. Yes, they are very interesting, but this is stupid, there are just a billion cliché phrases, they fall down one after the other of mouth literally all the characters. We times for time generals, pilots, sailors and even the mechanics repeat a rant about the duty, work, defend the homeland and salvation of the people. And for this is lost live experiences, fears and mistakes. as a result, the attempt to show real participants in the war turns into solid plates. And the best dick to the final still turns into a brutal superhero, but a different that could exist in real life.

the Film "midway" from the Rolland Emmerich, was very mediocre, we can say that the Amateur. With one hand, nice battle, as on the water and with incredible special effects, a rich picture, a very interesting plot, but with the unsolved problems of the characters, not have any love line with the clichéd, pretentious phrases, and superhero abilities. With some historical inaccuracy. of Course, it was worth a go, but if you a huge fan of special effects and the militants, but for historians this film is not fit. As I think the film is completely repeat the fate of "pearl Harbor" from the Bay here is also poorly worked Director. After all, Emmerich, as and Michael Bay, making a significant bet on beautiful picture and special effects, but this turns the real story on too unnatural and well, very embellished story.

Roland Emmerich, accustom the viewer to a large-scale spectacular productions, in this time I decided to not take a fictional fantasy story, and that the neither are historically authentic. The battle of midway in June 1942, which became a turning point in the war on the Pacific ocean is the largest for US naval operation since the Second world war. However, the German Director that was not enough and he began the narrative of his painting with the Attack on pearl Harbor 7. December 1941 when Japanese carrier-based aircraft destroyed half of the American fleet, and the United States was forced to declare war on Japan and thereby to join the world war.

Just want to note that for all its epic and grandeur of aerial and naval battles from 100 million of military action, as is no sad, lame graphics, why some scenes of fighting fascinating do not force the viewer to plunge into the world of death and destruction are viewed as special effect. But the creators should be praised for authentic design, and army uniforms of those years. In some degree of "midway" is much more reminiscent of the old Hollywood war films with textured characters and inspirational speeches than modern blockbusters. No wonder in the time of the attack of midway in the frame gets a legendary American film Director John Ford with its operator, who was really in the time island time it to shoot (this documentary footage you can see in the short movie "Battle for the midway"). Yeah and these actors, with a square chin, as Aaron Eckhart or Dennis Quaid, who plays a small role, though, and really fought with the Japanese army, before went to Hollywood.

Also "midway" should chide and a lack of integrity. The picture is oversaturated with storylines and has the most successful of their installation. With one hand, one can not show the Doolittle RAID, when his land bombers took off from carrier went to bomb Tokyo in April ' 42, with other — it resembles a epic cameo of Aaron Eckhart and not affect the main theme of the film and involved in her characters. And these moments in the picture several. Rather, Roland Emmerich is trying to show that the war is won thanks to all and everyone, and any event, even the most insignificant on first glance, contributed to the coming victory of America in the Battle of midway. By the way, along with the American military in the film is given the time and Japanese. And the painting itself is dedicated to the memory of the dead soldiers of both the countries-participants of the conflict.

In addition to the action scenes in the movie enough and the vicissitudes of the Cabinet, which I must say, very exciting. For them, first and foremost, meet Patrick Wilson with his team of rasshifrovku analysts and woody Harrelson, who played the commander in chief of the Pacific fleet Chester Nimitz. But and the main character, as the battle, and film Richard best (when the name under become man), played the brutal and daring ed Stranom, is not only side and the ground. However, the actor still not always have enough skill for dramatic scenes, and sometimes it plays them with monotonous set of emotions. But perhaps here the fault lies more and the writer-the newcomer (Wes Tuk), who gave most of the characters are sometimes too pretentious speeches. In this respect, even a little surprising, as Emmerich, as a rule, removes the personal stories on the backdrop of global disasters, not have enough professionalism to make the characters more human and real.

It would be best to call "midway" cowboy action on military subjects, with the dashing Braves in the key actors and the minimum number slezovydelenii dramatic scenes. This movie is unlikely to want to reconsider, but with the, sink it will also be unfair. Cons picture is unable to outweigh the advantages, as well as and Vice versa. In the end, we get a quite average movie, about which love to talk — one at a time. However, in this situation, this clumsy phrase fits like a handy. So that fans of historical military paintings are not necessary to pass by.

Bang! The Japanese strongly come. Americans are in shock. Pearl Harbor attacked childish. You did! Someone, probably, wanted to review an old movie of Michael Bay and to compare the two mastodons-the destroyers of all that is beautifully constructed. Japanese sales has shown himself a boy, there misled, insolent in region and knew what is coming. Fuck-tibidoh! Decided overall, the Great America to take brutally raped for confidence. Bah! But the place of residence of Monica Lewinsky Yes Jimmy Kimmel not born sewn, though, and beautiful allowed to pull off her pants with belt, pants in the last Bastion of not given. Fiuuu!

Of course, somewhere there is a desire first to write local positive feedback, so that is the fingers don't allow. For Roland Emmerich must admit, it pretty average movie. After all the work that he did in their best works, the German seems to the end is not understand that him to destroy and the scare on. And the sequel to "independence Day," and "Geostorm," and here "midway" is almost never differ other. A lot of characters and a bunch of friends and no acting persons, a large number of mediocre visual effects, lost in the alleys of the story Yes reminiscent of old and lot of make-up sex bomb action is intended only to pass a day or evening of the viewer, who does not mind losing a few hours of his life.

Of course, all credits are warning that "Medway" based on real events. The film is even dedicated without the separation of the American and Japanese soldiers that should be called after a session of deep feeling. Only their no, because an outright blockbuster creates an atmosphere of war that would be awesome gaming or even table that players were just having fun, as it allows them imagination. A real Battle for the midway Atoll were far from the deliberate pathos and beautiful tricks, I guess. There soldiers died in the Pacific ocean, without hopes to rescue or medical assistance. Noise in the Pacific ocean...

The twentieth century quite contradictory. So many innovations and discoveries, the same tragedies and the horrors of war. If you dig into the textbooks, you can find a lot of battles for new adaptations. And will begin the next debate, which is not so it is too pathetic, here realistic terribly, this is not enough violence with blood. War, how bread circuses, despite how much grief sipped different people in war time. Here it is foolish to blame Roland Emmerich and other kinodela because they always want to fill in the repertoires of theaters novelties military movie. The demand is there. The main message — nothing is forgotten, the future can't happen. "Medway", however, almost beautifully entertains, that popcorn was good proglatavetsa not more. Curtain.

PS. nick Jonas a hero did that all the fans now just him. The Priyanka Chopra have to move.
