Movie Info

A mixed-blood Native American, Joe Logan, eager to modernize his reservation, must first prove himself to his father, the traditionalist Tribal Chairman, by rediscovering his spirit. He is tasked with coaching the reservation's high school lacrosse team which competes against the better equipped and better trained players of the elite Prep School League. Joe inspires the Native American boys and teaches them the true meaning of tribal pride. Ignited by their heritage and believing in their new-found potential, coach and team climb an uphill battle to the state championship finals against their privileged prep school rivals...will they win? -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Crooked Arrows

All Critics (27) | Top Critics (14)

An entirely predictable script that chugs along to the foregone loser-beats-odds conclusion.

In another era, "Crooked Arrows" might have been an after-school special, perfect to have on the TV while cleaning the house; miss a scene while you're dusting under the couch, and you'll still know exactly what's happening later.

"Crooked Arrows" gets points for its glimpses of Native American culture and history - the film's backers include the Onondaga Nation - but too many of these scenes are disappointingly static.

"Crooked Arrows" might involve two lesser-seen screen subjects - Native Americans and lacrosse - but it still can't break free of the usual underdog sports picture tropes.

May 31, 2012 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Routh ... does a killer Tom Cruise-in-"Jerry Maguire" homage in this swift little sports dramedy.

May 31, 2012 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

A millennial brace of lacrosse action propels Crooked Arrows through a thicket of cliches liberally planted in its path.
