Crooked Arrows

 Crooked Arrows 

On Blue Ray and DVD October 23,2012


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 prepschool rivals, these fast-breaking warriors may just pull off the ultimate upset and win it all!

This is really a great movie, has you rooting for the underdogs.  I really enjoyed this movie, I'm not one to get into sport movies but I really liked this one.   Whether you play lacrosse or not you will enjoy this movie.. It has a really great message and shows the history of Native American players on lacrosse. I think this movie would be a superb opportunity to have some quality time with the family.  I think this is one movie even the teenagers will like.  I intend on watching it again..I love rooting for the underdog!
