Nicolas Cage takes the starring role in this John Woo-directed war movie about US soldiers fighting in the Pacific during World War Two. Ben Yahzee (Adam Beach) is a Navajo Indian who signs up for the US marines to work as a radio operator in a new military program which uses the Navajo language as the basis for coded transmissions. Sent into action, Yahzee is given battle-weary sergeant Joe Enders (Cage) as a bodyguard, but remains unaware that Enders has been ordered to kill him should he fall into enemy hands. When the two men find themselves caught up in the intense close-quarters combat of the battle of Saipan, they must struggle not only against the enemy, but also to earn each other's trust and respect.

Format: Blu-ray
After his heroics during the 'Solomon Island' campaign, 'Sergeant Joe Enders'
who had to recover from injuries sustained is determined to return to active
service, even persuading a nurse to help him fool the medics to do so.
the 'Japanese' have broken every code the U.S. military have used.
they come up with the idea of using the ancient 'Navajo' language needing
'Navajo' conscripts to use the code ........Wind-talking'
'Joe Enders' is assigned a Windtalker 'Private Ben Yahzee' with a mission of
keeping his charge safe and out of enemy hands at 'all costs' protecting the
code.
The sergeant doesn't do friendship............until....
a terrific and well made war-drama..........realistic, action packed, inspired
by a true story.
there are always 'new films' to watch, '2013' is shaping up to be a great year
for new releases.
the slightly older 'Gems' tend to be pushed to the back of the shelf as new
films are collected.
I think we tend to forget just how good many of the 'let's say -a little older'
movies really are.
it's worth taking time out to, like I am trying to do, to revisit some of these,
it's easy to forget them with so many promising new releases.

It could have been such a great movie. The story of code talkers AND of the terrible and tragic battle of Saipan in one movie - and they had Nicholas Cage, who, contrary to all his haters, is a good actor (remember a little movie called "Moonstruck"?). But the way this film was made... oh, brother... I couldn't believe it.

First, the director messed up a potentially passionate story by showing the recruitement, training and arrival of the Indian code talker to the front in possibly the dullest, colourless way possible. Expect a looooong introduction.

Then, Nicholas Cage character was made in a depressed, half suicidal idiot. Good grief, he plays a man with a mission here, an intelligence officer, charged to protect an invaluable asset (the Indian code talker) - there is no way that in time of war somebody so depressed and dejected could be assigned such a mission. Except in direst of circumstances - and to invade Saipan US Marines and US Army had lots of ressources, including good officers.

The fighting scenes on Saipan - they are exactly like in the worst Chuck Norris movies from the 80s. A short message to moviemakers in Hollywood: "Hello, guys, Spielberg with "Saving Private Ryan" and Ridley Scott with "Blackhawk Down" already revisited war movies - and the kind of cheap stuff we were OK with before, we, the viewers, we do not buy it anymore". I fully agree with some of the previous reviewers - in this film Japanese soldiers act like total morons and get killed by bushels from a single burst of machine gun. This is ridiculous. The fighting scenes on Solomon Islands in the opening scenes (featuring Nicholas Cage) are EVEN worse!

I was looking forward to this DVD as I had heard about it and was intrigued by the thought of the deception by the Americans using Native Americans speaking in their own language to fool the Japanese. I believe that Welsh speakers were used by our Army in WW11. I enjoyed the film although it is extremely noisy and is let down by having Nicholas Cage in it. I read about the real Windtalkers on line and it seems to follow reality pretty well. If you like war films, as I do you will enjoy this. I particularly enjoyed hearing the Native American language and looked up the alphabet and learned a few words. I wanted to find out what happened to the Windtalkers after the war, those who survived went back to their homes and continued life normally although I believe they were never really recognised for their bravery.

A new slant on the Pacific War, but not a patch on 'Pride of the Marines'. Guadalcanal and Saipan feature highly in US operations during 1942-4, but I had the feeling, which other reviewers shared, that the Japanese displayed moronic rather than Kamekaze traits. The battle scenes were in fact extremely good, apart from the CGIs of low flying fighter aircraft. Nicolas Cage looked like a volcano about to erupt, while Adam Beach learns how to grow up fast. For those who are looking for a 'modern' uptake on the Pacific War, I would recommend 'Flags of Our Fathers' and 'Letters from Iwo jima'. This film isn't in the same class.

13 of 17 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Joe HALL OF FAMETOP 1000 REVIEWER on 12 Sept. 2006
Format: DVD
From mid-1942 to the end of the Pacific war, approximately 400 Navajo Indians served in all six Marine divisions, Marine Raider battalions and Marine parachute units as "code talkers". Their job was to transmit military traffic by radio and telephone in their native language. It was a code the Japanese never cracked. This is the inner kernel of the script for WINDTALKERS.

Nicolas Cage plays Sgt. Joe Enders. He's already demonstrated his ability to follow orders. In the Solomon Islands campaign, his unit fought to the last man - Enders himself - to defend some piece of scummy swamp. After recovering from injuries, Joe is assigned as guardian to a newly enlisted Navajo, Pvt. Ben Yahzee (Adam Beach), who's a rookie radioman in a Marine recon outfit that's part of the assault on Saipan. Joe's orders are to protect the Navajo code "at all costs", which means, in effect, that Enders must be ready to kill Yahzee rather than allow the latter to be captured by the enemy.

Director John Woo has buried the nugget of a pretty good story in so many dead bodies and special effects that it's virtually lost to view. Woo must have been trying to outdo WE WERE SOLDIERS and BLACK HAWK DOWN in body count. Even when the beleaguered Marines discover they're almost out of ammo, they still manage to mow down the onrushing Japanese in scores. Joe Enders himself, suffering the guilt and rage from being the only survivor of his former Solomon Islands unit, is a one man killing machine seemingly capable of storming Tokyo single-handed. The hapless Ben finds himself put in harm's way as he's forced to trail along after his minder and watch the carnage. The combat action isn't even always plausible.
