Crooked Arrow is a fun movie, that plays on the roots of lacrosse (a native american game, who knew!). The main character, Joe Logan played by Brandon Routh is attempting to secure native american land to expand a casino. In order to do this he is forced to face his past. This follows the template of the Mighty Ducks. That being said it seems to work, Joe earns the respect of the team and quickly transforms the teams, molds them and gets them winning. He also begins to learn what’s important, good family movie.
The ancient sport of lacrosse has been part of their tribal heritage for centuries, but the Native American players on the Crooked Arrows high school team are long-time losers. When former star player Joe Logan (Routh) agrees to coach the rag-tag group to seal the deal on a lucrative casino project, he sets out to turn the chumps into champs and, in the process, learns the value of loyalty himself. If the Arrows can learn to shoot straight and challenge their prepschool rivals, these fast-breaking warriors may just pull off the ultimate upset and win it all!
