About the Movie
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!

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.
Fresh: The story is unique and engaging enough to transcend the uplifting sports-underdog formula.
This was one of my favorite movies, it had a lot of lacrosse history to it and I have the movie now so I think that I'm gonna have the whole lacrosse team from middle to high school watch it some time soon I'm just glad they recognized lacrosse because where I live not many people know what the sport is.
Can't wait to see it! When does it come out though
Best Sports movie Since Miracle!
We took our team to see this when it opened, and it was wonderful! It is a sports movie in the vein of Mighty Ducks, only with a great deal of lacrosse history and culture thrown in, making it far superior. My family loved it!
