John Woo's powerful war epic WINDTALKERS follows a platoon of men, among them code talkers, in the Battle of Saipan. Academy Award-winning actor Nicolas Cage and Christina Slater star as two marines assigned to protect two Navajo code talkers, played by Adam Beach and newcomer Roger Willie. The mission, however, is not so simple. Not only are they required to protect the code talker, but also the code. To that end, the classified mission calls for the bodyguard to terminate the code talkers if captures. With Woo's unique visual style and elaborately choreographed action sequences, WINDTALKERS tells the story of conflicted loyalties and the bond that forms among men through the ordeal of war.
