  • windtalkers - best war movie ever?

    NOOOOTTTT!!


    saw it for the first time (and reluctantly after so many bad reviews) last night on tv.

    what a pile of dung of a movie. after 45 minutes (after the first Saipan battle scene) I stopped watching and went to have sex.

    what a moronic movie!!!!

        Windtalkers: a great concept totally ruined by Hollywoody.

        BTW: there is no such thing as bad sex.

            Totally bad movie but a good concept for a movie. I doubt Nick Cage would have survived half of that.

              What I learned from the movie is that if we had just signed up Al Capone to teach us fight, we would have had no problems.

                Yeah, this was a pretty brutal film. I actually saw it in theatres when it first came out. John Woo totally butchered it with way too mnay over-the-top scenes and action sequences. Too bad too, because the actual story of those windtalkers is actually quite interesting.

                  People, when will you realize that when Nicolas Cage is in a movie, then it is automatically BAD!!?

                      LoW is based upon the life of Victor Bout. It's an excellent film about a real man that profitered from several low-level wars in Africa, amongst many other wars. He was even employed by the CIA to funnel arms to so-called American allies in Iraq... Typical Western response... something didn't go boom... therefore it's hated.

                      Windtalkers?

                      As a fromer U.S. Marine, I found the title to be horrid. It avoids the factual accounts of the Navajo Marines and their contributions to the war effort. But it's a John Woo film, what did you expect?

                        John Woo made one mistake ... he shot a war movie like a John Woo movie!

                          While I agree that it was over the top in many scenes (especially the ending where Cage and Adam Beach take on an entire Japanese infantry battalion) sometimes its good to see a good ol gung ho rah rah rah war movie every once in a while.

                          Windtalkers = good for entertainment, bad for historical purposes. Not every war movie has to be an anti war all war is bad military is evil type movie.

                            John Woo did a huge misstake n' that was beginning to make movies. I've not seen one movie of him that I didn't find as pure and unrefined crap. Windtalkers ain't an exception, overacting, overexplosions, overheroism, oversized magazines...

                              I agree, LOW is a great film with quite a dark message. One of my favourites!!
