Movie Reviews

This movie really got to me..
Shipper | 10/03/2005

"I saw this on TV when I was young. It affected me deeply. I mean REALLY got to me. To this day, I STILL see the scene when the Indians shoot the girl, just as her brother reaches the ending of the 'Crooked Sky' a huge obstacle-course type timed race. My heart stopped as I watched the girl falling down the cliff, blindfolded, hands bound.

Then the ending blew me away even more. And I never forgot it. EXCELLENT drama imparting strong messages of sacrifice, family-love and honor to name a few."

"the reproduction company TIMELESS MEDIA GROUP once again wants a fast buck. the picture quality is poor and the audio was not that good. the movie has the icon TMG inserted which is annoying. we pay good money for these dvds and expect better quality. from now on the gloves are off. dont waste money on dvds reproduced by TIMELESS MEDIA GROUP"
Not like watching the original.

"With all the technology of today it would had been nice to see this priceless touching film without feeling you are watching a old elementary reel tape. Too bad. I am sorry I bought. The quality was awfull."
Family movie except for a scene of nudity.
