Crooked Arrows stars Brandon Routh in the story of a group of Native American teens trying to get their lacrosse team into the playoffs, and it’s just another humdrum sports movie with a cliché-riddled plot. When these clichés are done correctly, they can become decent films—but due to poor acting and message-shoved-in-your-face dialogue, this film drags heavier than a dead body. While I like Routh, his post-Superman Returns work has been lacking, and he could really use a good script. It’s pretty sad seeing him in stuff like this; he is actually a competent and handsome-enough actor.
