||heston not good|
Midway DVD for sale I grew up just after the war with a father (veteran) and a brother so in our house you talked war and armed forces. I know the history of Midway and saw it with my family, many of whom were in London during the blitz, and the omly thing that is remotely realistic was the surround sound and the vibrations that they said made the bombing real. I have never liked Charlton Heston, and in this movie he seemed emotionless, and uninterested in what he was doing. So overall, the acting was so - so, and the special effects were great, even the open wstock war tapes.
