The inspirational sports drama has become a dependable staple of film, and while some like Aaron Sorkin’s Moneyball or Sean Astin's Rudy involve an individual’s triumph more than an entire team’s, more often than not the two are spliced together with the coach overcoming some personal issues while raising a ragtag group of players from obscurity to excellence. Steve Rash’s Crooked Arrows plays into that formula without a single reservation, content to let the fact that it’s about a Native American lacrosse team be its only identifying quality to separate it from the rest. And really, that is all the separates it. The writing is cheesy, but within a tolerable range, and the decent acting from Brandon Routh and Gil Birmingham is enough to offset the rest of the cast, leaving its concept to be the only thing you might remember a few days later. »
