A battle-weary Marine is assigned to guard - and ultimately befriends - a young Navajo soldier who has been trained to be a code talker. This code, the Navajo code, and the men who knew the code, were to be guarded as they went into action. It was the unspoken duty of the Marine to kill the Navajo soldier before he could be taken prisoner of war by the Japanese. This is the one wartime code that was never broken by the enemy.

Well. This movie did not stand up to the test of time. I rewatched it this weekend and had to stop halfway through. I couldn't handle the soundtrack playing over the battles--it sounded cheesy. The acting was stilted and felt second-rate, which is too bad because it's an incredible story. Skip.

Not a lot about the Navajo Code Talkers, but good enough story - lots of shooting and killing, but it is a war movie in a war zone.

A good enough war movie, but very disappointing given that it is based on the Code Talkers. The development of that group is almost irrelevant to this movie.

Very well done movie. A pleasure to watch. I would recommend this movie for all to see. No fast forwarding on this one. A++ DVD
