Movie Info

The third and final entry into the popular series of Shiloh films, based on the writings of author Phyllis Reynolds Naylor and detailing the captivating journeys of a young boy and his loyal canine companion, find a maturing Marty standing by his troubled neighbor Judd during the drunken townie's most desperate hour. A local man has gone missing, and when authorities find out that he was last seen fighting with Judd, who is already suspected in a series of thefts, they are quick to finger Marty's neighbor as the prime suspect in the unsolved mystery. Though local gossip quickly convicts the weary loner before his case ever even goes to trial, Marty, his father, and his understanding teacher are quick to point out that in the American justice system people are to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

An OK kids movie passing through on the way to video.

You won't find the pragmatic intelligence of Naylor's original stories here, but even cynics may be touched by the film's remarkably wholesome lessons about friendship, family and forgiveness.

It's a family film that deals with real problems and teaches real values, and yet is exciting and entertaining.

Audience Reviews for Saving Shiloh

Saving Shiloh is a very good family movie. I just wish it hadn't strayed so far away from what made the first one better. I hated in this one how the focus was almost completely taken off Shiloh and that he was barely in the movie and when he was he was subjected to the background. I didn't like how he was very much of a factor except near the end. I also didn't like how the story felt a little convoluted and couldn't decide on what story it wanted to tell. As for the positives, the movie actually had a decent mystery to it and I enjoyed the ending and felt it was quite heartwarming.

Saving Shilo is down to earth. Further, it pivots on the realistic judgemental attitudes human nature fosters but gives a prime example of how we should behave. There is nothing more magical than the good that goodness brings.

May be naive and narratively simple, but it's prime fare for the always underserved family audience.
