Review Action is John Woo's middle name. After directing frenetic flicks such as Mission: Impossible II, Face/Off, and Broken Arrow, I knew we would get enough bombs, blood and broken body parts to give his WWII drama Windtalkers an accurate feel. But the film is about more than good gore; it has tremendous heart, too...Windtalkers features plenty of non-stop action customary of Woo's style. The highly tense war scenes show every body part imaginable getting blown up, sliced off, or burnt to a crisp. The grotesque realism is difficult to watch at some points, but it represents some of the best battle depictions in recent cinema. It will definitely quench anyone's appetite for extreme action...Windtalkers captures the spirit of the Navajo Marines and the vitally important role they played in saving the lives of many Marines who helped the United States win key battles in WWII. It took them fifty years to receive their well-deserved recognition and now, with Windtalkers, there is a film that is a true testament to their courage under fire.

ReviewRating 9
Review [Director Woo] reportedly cried when he read the script for Windtalkers -- a stirring, sprawling World War II epic about Navajo soldiers fighting the Japanese. The director infuses the film with that same level of emotion -- it's his most resonant film since The Killer -- while delivering gunplay on a massive scale. (It is war, after all.)...Windtalkers has enough plot for three movies, and, excepting the clunky intro, Woo deserves praise for keeping his narrative balls in the air. He is due even more credit for pumping the film full of some of the hairiest WWII combat this side of Saving Private Ryan...Windtalkers' greatest victory, though, is off the battlefield. One gets a real sense of camaraderie; it seems believable that even though Enders has orders to kill Yahzee, these men would still fight to the last to save each other. Isn't that what soldiery is all about? Woo even handles the film's religious moments with a poetic grace: Whether it's a Navajo fire ceremony or a soldier saying a Hail Mary, the director knows the difference between being preachy and pious.
