The movie also touches on the Native American roots of the game, which are very deep and interesting. Most importantly, to me, as I have been a long time critic about how our world has placed our Native American Indians in the background with no attention, I mean, real attention, etc. and this feeling of mine goes back to when I learned from history as to Who Was Here First in America! The Native American Indians! We, our government, seem to have put that aside, care less, and place attention on slavery, thanks to Abraham Lincoln! The Native American Indians were here first, as they greeted us on to American land, and I noted this even in an Irish Novel "Ireland" where they, St. Fitzgerald and his crew wished to visit America, and when they arrived, they were "welcomed" by the Native American Indians to come and make a home here, but he(?) thanked them, saying they just wanted to come and see America. This movie, Crooked Arrows" reopened my vote for them to get honor!

There is so many things about this film; from the acting to the story line that I can't write it with just the right amount of justice.
So to keep it short, watch the film, sit back, enjoy and walk out a Crooked Arrow!

This movie nailed it head on. Its about lacrosse, but more importantly its about its roots. Where it came from and those who played it first. The movie takes you into the culture that lives around lacrosse. I recommend this movie for anyone who plays lacrosse, wants to learn about lacrosse, or is looking for a good sports movie!

This movie has so much heart. Yes, the theme of a down-and-out team makes good has been used before, but never with the beauty and love in this story. The sense of history, and family in the Native American community brought me to tears. The opening scene is nothing short of awesome.

If you love Lacrosse, you will love this movie. You will come out with a better understanding of the history of Creator's Game while cheering for the modern day warriors. I thought the story was very well done and you are drawn in from the start. It honor's the true tradition of Lacrosse and the people that brought it to us. Remember "It only takes one good shot!" Go see this movie! You will NOT regret it.
