Here he does some mad stuff in the beginning of the film when he plays a grieved soldier who let down every man on his team because he only struck to the orders. But towards the end he returns to playing himself. There are too many actors in this film, only the code talkers had some important characterization. The critic's consensus are wrong, the story of the code talkers are not superficially studied, but are well observed. The film has lot of cliches, but they are made bearable by John Woo's apt direction. But you are made to wonder whether Woo is the adequate man for a war drama, but anyway most of his stunts are real good.
