Storyline

Schoolboy Josh Townsend has to move again with his father, astrophysics researcher Dr. Nick Townsend, to a Utah small town. To escape the copy-boy job dad arranged, Josh volunteers for the tribal buffalo reserve, working with Navajo clan elder John Blackhorse's cynical grandson Thomas and his buddy Moon. Local scamp Kyle's cool cyclist knaves gang seems irresistible, but their hazing-like demands bring Josh to betray his buffalo friends's reluctant confidence. Written by KGF Vissers

Above Average DCOM
31 December 2006 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

Though this film wasn't my favorite, it was above average. I am not a fan of Disney Channel movies because most of them are predictable and about the exact same thing. My favorite DCOM's are the Halloweentown Trilogy, Read it and Weep, Eddie's Million Dollar Cook Off, and Rip Girls. This film doesn't really get on my favorites because(no offense) it was kind of boring.

I liked the idea and the plot but I didn't get into it that much and it just wasn't really my cup of tea. It was a good try though. The originality was definitely there.

This movie could have been better but it was still a bit entertaining. A decent watch.
