Editorial Reviews

You'll stand up and cheer for this feel-good sports thriller starring Brandon Routh (Superman Returns.) The ancient sport of lacrosse has been part of their tribal heritage for centuries, but the Native American players on the Crooked Arrows high school team are long-time losers. When former star player Joe Logan (Routh) agrees to coach the rag-tag group to seal the deal on a lucrative casino project, he sets out to turn the chumps into champs and, in the process, learns the value of loyalty himself. If the Arrows can learn to shoot straight and challenge their prep school rivals, these fast-breaking warriors may just pull off the ultimate upset and win it all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Sports Movie Since Miracle! August 23, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Crooked Arrows takes the oft used Mighty Ducks style of sports movie to another level. The overall skeleton of the story is what you would expect. Misfit team thrown together with unpopular, unmotivated coach manages to come together to win in the end. It is how the journey takes place that sets this film apart. Crooked Arrows delves into the rich history of lacrosse and native American culture. The history and philosophy is both accurate and respectful. The theme of the movie is "respect the game," and Crooked Arrows does just that.

Through all this, the comedic timing of these athletes is impeccable. As with Miracle, it would have been much more difficult to teach actors to play lacrosse than to teach lacrosse players to act, so that's the way they went. As a result, the lacrosse action is both accurate and spectacular. They brought in the same sports photography experts that created the intense action of Miracle to recreate that here. You will feel like you are on the field with these players! Throw in a few cameos from lacrosse greats, and you have a perfect movie.

As a former player and current coach, I cannot recommend this movie more highly!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Lacrosse! September 13, 2012
By Plesso
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My whole family waited for this movie to come out in theaters, and we ALL loved it! Besides being a great underdog-wins-out sports flick, this movie touches on a lot of other important topics as well, including the rights and heritage of Indigenous Peoples, class rivalries, and personal honor and responsibility, and it does so without an overbearing or moralizing feel. There are a few tongue-in-cheek jokes that only true laxxers are likely to get, and a lot more humor for everyone else to share. A must-see for all youth lacrosse players, this movie is a treasure for the entire family. Spread the game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Straight Forward for Crooked Arrows November 26, 2012
Format:DVD
The way the story is told, about a sport established LONG before any Spanish, French, or other non-indigenous peoples stepped foot on this continent makes this film have a richness grounded in a tradition most of us have no clue about.
Beautiful in it's simplicity. Rich in it's uniqueness. Unless the day comes that someone makes a LaCrosse movie on a Res by a native, with only natives in it, you will not get a more inside view of where the sport comes from, and how unique the culture behind it is.
Anyone cynical enough to call this a "typical feelgood movie" needs to examine themselves. There is nothing typical about this movie.
There are not enough movies told from the native viewpoint. That in itself makes this movie out of the norm. I am NOT a Native American, but it sure is something worth wishing for.

4.0 out of 5 stars thoroughly enjoyed July 22, 2013
Format:DVD
The film starts with a fantastic scene of what looks like a pursuit, but you soon learn it's a game. It's the lacrosse game as it was ritually played by Iroquois people in the centuries past to honour the Creator, who gave the game to the people.
It drew me right in, and I think this is the difference between this film and so many others about sport and coming of age and finding yourself that you can find out there.

Yes, because on the outside, this film is not very different from many others that came before and others that will surely come after this one. We have a mismatched team that always loses. We have a reluctant coach - trapped in the position and with a shady past - that slowly learns to appreciate other people as well as himself. We have a lot of characters funny and less so. I can't honestly say I've never seen anything like this.
But I can, and I will say, that the take of this film to this well-known theme is quite unique.

The lacrosse itself is a sport that is not often seen on screen. The setting is an Indian reservation (of the fictional nation of Senequois, member of the very real Iroquois Confederacy). And especially the way the theme is played - inside the Iroquois belief that the sport is not merely a game, but it's a way to healing people and places - is something that I don't think I've ever seen in sport films and that I thoroughly enjoyed and found very meaningful.

The scenes of actual played game are very good and involving. The guys are actual lacrosse players from different Iroquois nations, and this adds to the personality of this film.

A very enjoyable show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great family movie! December 4, 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I saw this movie in the theater during its limited release. What a fun film! This is the type of movie that you can enjoy with your whole family. It's a great story that needed to be told. It's a story that inspires you to truly care about your roots, your community and your family. The cast is great, especially Brandon Routh (Joe Logan), Gil Birmingham (Ben Logan) and Chelsea Ricketts. The score is also great, and a must buy for music lovers like me. If you like sports movies with heart and a positive message, check this out!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great LAX team builder! November 13, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Watched this with the whole family, but my son, in particular, was excited as he is on his second LAX season and has fallen in love with the game. As a parent, I thought the movie not only highlighted the importance of team with LAX (and many other sports), but also provided insight to the sport that is otherwise overlooked.

Great movie - will watch again and again.
