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. CROOKED ARROWS is an original, uplifting sports movie in the tradition of such classics as THE MIGHTY DUCKS and BAD NEWS BEARS.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: "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.
Fresh: A millennial brace of lacrosse action propels Crooked Arrows through a thicket of cliches liberally planted in its path.
Rotten: "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.
Rotten: Despite referring to the tribe as "my people," Routh is wholly miscast, yet his ill-fitting presence is part and parcel of the plotting's general illogicality.
