    While the sheer novelty of a feature about lacrosse may be enough to generate some audience curiosity about A Warrior's Heart, this respectably crafted but thoroughly predictable indie rarely deviates from the gameplan followed by countless other dramas about self-absorbed young hotheads who get a shot at redemption on the playing field.

    A Warrior's Heart is factory-issue jingoism, yielding no surprises and frightfully few insights.

    It plays like a string of cliches linked together to form a movie with not a single moment of surprise or originality.

    Still, in movie terms, Warrior's Heart makes curling look like gladiatorial combat.

    A Warrior's Heart is so inept at developing itself as a film that it hands in all of its devices to the soundtrack itself and becomes a music video.
