Kate is employed full time at a Christmas shop in London whose wisecracking owner Michelle Yeoh goes by the name Santa. We only learn what happened to Kate when she reveals the scar from an operation to Tom Henry Golding , the beautiful, saintly man she begins seeing after finding him bird-watching outside the Christmas shop. Kate loves George Michael—one imagines she feels a bond with the late singer, the son of a Balkan immigrant himself, though the filmmakers leave this unexplored—and thus Last Christmas attempts to remake some of his most well-known songs into seasonally appropriate tunes.
Such films, though, earned their Christmas miracles and holiday moralizing by grounding their stories in a sense of the community created by bonds between fully realized characters. Emmerich, a latter-day heir to the cinema-as-spectacle tradition of Cecil B. DeMille, employs special effects in Midway not to induce a sense of you-are-there verisimilitude, nor to exhilarate audiences with a series of death-defying stunts.
In addition to the Battle of Midway, the film depicts the bombing of Pearl Harbor, the Doolittle Raid on Tokyo, and other skirmishes in the Pacific during WWII, and these sequences, so bathed in honeyed sunlight, exude a sense of wide-eyed gee-whiz glee: all the fun of battle with none of the icky gore. Midway is a paean to those brave American soldiers of the greatest generation, one that positions the brave sailors of the U. Navy as scrappy underdogs who, after the humiliating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, make it their mission to avenge themselves on the Japanese.
The film studiously avoids acknowledging anything about the era it depicts that might make its target audience read: white History Channel-watching patriarchs uncomfortable. Nowhere is this more evident than in its treatment—or, rather, complete non-treatment—of race.
Emmerich not only completely sidesteps the issue of racial segregation in the military, black soldiers are completely unseen in the film, despite the fact that many African-Americans served on U. Less flashy but similarly righteous is a naval intelligence officer, Edwin Layton Patrick Wilson , who fights the good fight against the bureaucracy in order to convince the higher-ups that the Japanese plan to attack the Midway atoll.

Woody Harrelson also shows up looking tired and slightly lost as Admiral Chester W. The script never invests us in any of these characters, failing to establish real narrative stakes for any of them. The plot is really little more than perfunctory filler between the battle sequences, which are peppered throughout the film with the regularity of dance numbers in a Rogers and Astaire musical. Midway is reportedly a longtime passion project for Emmerich, for which he scraped together funds from a number of sources, making it one of the most expensive independent films of all time.
