Saw it last night, really enjoyed it! Dialog was not the greatest, action scenes were engaging, story line was accurate. Well worth a watch, the audio system in the theater was in overload with all the explosions throughout the battle sequences.
Few complaints: Depictions of historical people without any mention of who they were. The admiral who loses his command after Pearl Harbor I assume was supposed to be Kimmel but it's never stated (even though he has dialog including the "make by successor listen to you" advice to Jim Layton). The admiral that gives Nimitz his new posting I believe was Ernest King, never specified though. The surviving torpedo pilot who watches the attack on the flattops from the water is George Gay (I assume) but he's never identified. It took half the movie to realize the admiral hanging around Nimitz was Ray Spruance. No names, introductions, or anything. Like how hard would it be to have the admirals shake hands with someone and introduce themselves?
Second, no fighters at all. The entire battle was Devastators and Dauntlesses, didn't see a Wildcat anywhere. Maybe too many blue planes would confuse the viewer.
Third, why didn't Doolittle have any rank insignia on his flight cap? Oversight by the prop/costumer departments I guess.
