Good Syfy story for everyone in the family
20 March 2015 | by rob-sibleySee all my reviews

At first the notion of a science fiction movie with Native Americans seems a little unusual. However, in the context of this film it makes sense. "Legends From The Sky" explains how some of the mystique surrounding Native myths could have come about. But this isn't just a movie about Navajo's, it's about many American tribes and even about people from other nations who seem to have supernatural abilities. There is a pretty good story about a black-ops department of the government and their over reach into the lives of peaceful people with some unexpected plot twist that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The photography is impressive. Especially the scenes shot in the state of Washington. There are some remarkable aerial shot of the Navajo Reservation with striking visual effects. And the humorous situations the protagonist finds himself in helps break the tension as the story takes us on a roller-coaster ride of intrigue and suspense. It's fun. It's mysterious. It's exciting. It's a good film for everyone in the family.
