Blu-ray Review - Crooked Arrows

CROOKED ARROWS Brandon Routh

"Crooked Arrows" is a film I wanted to like, came close to enjoying, but was consistently pulled away by some poor storytelling decisions. It's one of the first movies to concentrate solely on the game of lacrosse, a sport that's grown in popularity in recent years after spending centuries as a sacred activity for Native American cultures, where it's known as "The Creator's Game." It's a highly athletic, fast-paced sport that deserves a better onscreen celebration than "Crooked Arrows," which slaps around every cliché imaginable, looking to win over viewers through the comfort of familiarity. It has charm and a refreshing cultural perspective, but the predictability is often too much to bear, tanking the potential for a proper cinematic exploration of lacrosse.
