Arguably the most consequential naval battle in history, Midway turned the tide in the Pacific Theater during World War II. However, it was almost a disaster for America. 

The turning point in the decisive victory came when U.S. dive bombers found the exposed Japanese carriers, whose decks were strewn with planes, bombs, and fuel lines.

In five minutes, three of Japan's most formidable carriers were flamming wrecks and thousands of their crews – the most experienced in the world – were dead. 

The film reportedly shines brightest during thrilling scenes of aerial combat.
