Synopsis

In the brutal World War II Battle of Saipan, Sergeant Joe Enders (Nicolas Cage) guards – and ultimately befriends – Ben Yahzee (Adam Beach), a young Navajo trained in the one wartime code never broken by the enemy, the Navajo Code. But if Yahzee should fall into Japanese hands, how far will Enders go to save the military’s most powerful secret? John Woo directs this “exciting” “against-all-odds battle adventure” written by John Rice and Joe Batteer and inspired by the true story of the Navajo soldiers whose courage and sacrifices helped win the are in the Pacific. This edited film is provided and edited by Family Flix.

Dove Review

Like Saving Private Ryan, this film is inspired by a true story. Also like Saving Private Ryan, this film is graphically violent. I guess that is the nature of war. This film encompasses so much about the war in the Pacific, how soldiers handle different aspects of war, the bigotry of the times, the romance and yes the brutality. Just like Saving Private Ryan, this film has wonderful messages about overcoming stereotypes, heroism, friendship, facing your own demons, and overcoming adversity. Even though Dove cannot award the Dove Edited Seal to this edited version, I still highly recommend this film. It was captivating and intense. Nicolas Cage gives a tremendous performance, as does Adam Beach.
