The 2012 Drama Sport movie Crooked Arrows, was said to be one of the most touching and successful films that went straight to DVD. According to Steve Rash, the director of the movie, although it may not have earned the best ratings from movie critics, it still is a film that will touch many people's hearts. The movie stars Brandon Routh, Michael Hudson, Crystal Allen, Gil Birmingham, and Chelsea Ricketts, all of which who are up and coming actors in Hollywood. The film follows a mixed blooded Native American man named Joe Logan who has been very eager to modernize his reservations. He must first prove to himself and to his father who is the traditionalist Tribal Chairman that he can rediscover his spirit. Joe is then given a task to coach the reservations high school's lacrosse team that needs to compete against some of the most equipped, skilled, and trained players who go to the elite Prep high school. Joe Logan believes that even though the kids in his lacrosse team aren't the most trained, they are talented and have great potential in the sport. Joe Logan inspires these quite talented Native American boys to be the best lacrosse players they can be, and he teaches them what tribal pride is all about. Ignited through their heritage as well as believing in their new found potential, Coach Logan and underdog team climb the battle of going to the state championship finals playing against some of the most privileged prep high school rivals. Aside from Joe Logan training a team who lack knowledge on the sport, the school also doesn't give much support to the lacrosse team. The underdog students train their hardest to win their name at the school, and fight their hardest to make their coach proud. The film ranked a 5.1 out of 10 form movie critics, and was released to DVD right away. The film is a typical sports film that ends with students seeing their full potential.
