Most helpful review
extremely poor showingBy Willy from West Yorkshire , 12 Dec 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]Well what an extremely poor showing from the usually very good Nicholas Cage.
Set during the Second World War, two men (Nicholas Cage/Christian Slater) are given the role of protecting at all costs two American Indian radio operators who use the ancient Indian dialect to deliver orders and so as to stop the Japanese from cracking their codes.
The film starts off very poorly with one of the worst acted war scenes I have ever seen.
The poor acting continues with a very weak acting line up. The story is very lame, the effects shocking, the deliverance of the whole message about the American Indian radio operators extremely poor.
Thank God I rented this movie for free and didn't so anything foolish like paying to rent it or even worse actually buying this pathetic movie.
Sorry to write such a poor review especially when its my first but wish I had been warned off this film by other reviewers.

bad bad bad action movieBy evayo (1 review) from Cambridge , 17 May 2009if you've ever seen a spoof movie about war movies, they've probably been based on this 'immortal soldiers' one. Not only the dialogues are non-existent, you see once and again and again the ubiquituous 'Cage-look', which ends up annoying even the biggest fans of war movies and looses all its credibility. Don't bother to rent it.
agh!By Cucullan (2 reviews) from Leeds , 22 Feb 2009...terrible movie, Cage at his worst.
WindtalkersBy a customer from Salisbury , 28 Jan 2009A very good war movie one to watch....
Action PackedBy a customer from Somerset. , 23 Dec 2008Full of action and very similar to Flags of Our Fathers. Entertaining and hints at the fanaticism of the Japanese forces that often overwhelmed their oponents. It stretched the imagination too far sometimes with the same person storming machine gun nests time and agian coming through with hardly a scratch. Worth watching.
realisticBy a customer from Pontyclun , 23 Nov 2008I thought I would not enjoy this film when it first started - too gung-ho as is the usual American action movie. The more I got into it the more interesting it became. Very thoughtful dialogue between the the Indian and his 'keeper' and the action Directors camera angles puts you in the middle and makes you realize more and more what a terrible thing war is. It was very moving. Towards the end I did'nt want to watch because I knew what was going to happen
