Windtalkers is set in 1942, when several hundred Navajo Americans were recruited as Marines, and trained to use their language as a secret code. Marine Joe Enders (Nicolas Cage) is assigned to protect Ben Yahzee (Adam Beach), a Navajo code talker. Enders orders are to protect the code above the talker, so Yahzee must be protected, but if he is to falls into enemy hands, Enders must kill the man who is to become his friend.

Against the backdrop of the horrific Battle of Saipan, when capture is imminent, Enders is forced to make a decision, if he can't protect his fellow Marine, can he bring himself to kill Yahzee to protect the code?

I'm not a fan of war films, even though Apocalypse Now is one of my all-time favourite moves, so I was hesitant towards buying Windtalkers, but the price tag influenced me :) And all I can say is what a great story, Cage is great as always, Recommended!

Here is the trailer...
