In drawing on hackneyed plot devices from both sports movies and films about Native Americans, Schroder essentially has created an extended version of Walker, Texas Ranger without the intellectual dialogue or, sadly, Chuck Norris.

A determinedly old-fashioned boxing/ coming-of -age film, only perfunctorily hitting its marks.

An engaging and entertaining story about a young Navajo burdened by demons about his single white ancestor, and has a chip on his shoulder
