It's a family film that deals with real problems and teaches real values, and yet is exciting and entertaining.

Saving Shiloh is like one of those wholesome, old-fashioned films that you used to watch with your third-grade classmates during visits to the library.

Solid family fare. Like its source material, the Missouri-shot Saving Shiloh is down-home country without condescending to hicks from the sticks.

Offers exactly what you've come to expect from the series: Bland but wholly innocuous family entertainment featuring a cute kid and an even cuter dog.
