Goofs

About 40 minutes in, there's a scene in which Kevin Bacon's character closes the garage door after it mysteriously opens, then sees the French doors open. He walks up to close it and you notice, the closed door of the two has no holes for the lock and knob to go into. But the open door, as Bacon's character looks out, has the door knob/lock hardware. That door can't close shut or lock. See more »

All wrong with Navajo ways
19 June 2020 | by wvleeSee all my reviews

I am Diné (Navajo) and I am giving this movie one star because the acting was good. But the story line is way off. First of all Anasazi to Navajo is "ancient enemy", Second we don't speak Spanish nor use Christian symbols for ceremonial purposes and third at least use a real Navajo and the one that is fluent in Diné Bizaad (Navajo language). I am sure they can find one person on the rez. We all still practice our culture and ceremonies (medicine men) to this day. Its funny they use Hopi Kachinas as Anasazi people. (Different) Haha, way way way off! Please better educate yourself Hollywood. And no Navajos don't have teepees, we have Hogans.
