Surprisingly nice little mystery
12 September 2012 | by (Yarnell, USA) – See all my reviews

Secret at Arrow Lake is a pretty nice B-grade flick with a surprising ending with a well-presented mystery. The acting isn't the best in the world, but it's not horrible. Ali Faulkner (Mia) is a nice relief for the eyes, and C. Thomas Howell's acting skill carries the others in most scenes.

The subtitles are awful, so much so that one memory-sequence mistakes confused the actual rhythm of the mystery, and I didn't put it together until I watched it again. The mysterious sub-plots are nicely woven together, and the "moment of truth" had me smiling through the rest of the film.

All in all I enjoyed this feature; it's a nice, clean family-acceptable story that doesn't have any foul language or suggestive scenes, but children probably wouldn't sit still for the slow pace and lack of action.

Best of all, justice prevails!
