WINDTALKERS, the newest action thriller from superstar director John Woo (MISSION IMPOSSIBLE II, FACE/OFF, BROKEN ARROW) stars Nicolas Cage and Christian Slater and is set amid one of the bloodiest battles of the Pacific theatre of World War II. Nicolas Cage stars as Joe Enders, a United States Marine fighting in World War II. Having demonstrated his phenomenal courage under fire, he is called back to headquarters and given a special assignment. The first part is open knowledge: he is to protect the squadron's ultra-valuable Navajo radioman (nicknamed "codetalker") during the invasion of Sai-pan, one of the last Pacific islands still held by the Japanese. So far, so good. But the second,top-secret part of his assignment is much darker: If his codetalker falls into Japanese hands, Enders is to kill him rather than risk the loss of the vital Marine radio code (based on the Navajo language). Under Jon Woo's masterful direction, WINDTALKERS takes the viewer back to relive some of the bloodiest and most dramatic battles of the last great war.As part of the Second Squadron, a mix of tough veterans and nervous rookies, the tormented Enders and Ben Yahzee, his soft-spoken but courageous codetalker, form an unlikely friendship. But this friendship will be tested again and again on the battlefield and off as their squadron sees some of the hardest and most terrifying fighting of this bloody battle.

Summary: In the brutal fires of war, two men come together from different worlds. Joe Enders is a haunted warrior plagued by guilt, the only man to survive a terrifying bloodbath on the Tarawa Atoll. Ben Yahzee is a "codetalker," a gentle, proud Navajo who transmits secret military code created from his Native American tongue -- a language the Japanese enemy cannot decipher.
