    It's a family film that deals with real problems and teaches real values, and yet is exciting and entertaining.

    Saving Shiloh is like one of those wholesome, old-fashioned films that you used to watch with your third-grade classmates during visits to the library.
  3. Solid family fare. Like its source material, the Missouri-shot Saving Shiloh is down-home country without condescending to hicks from the sticks.
  4. Touching, intelligent and admirably thoughtful, but more action-packed than its predecessors, thanks to escaped convicts, a local murder and a truly suspenseful finale, with lives at stake.

    May be naive and narratively simple, but it's prime fare for the always underserved family audience.

    An honorable, squeaky-clean children's drama, this is notable for its relatively penetrating morality and for Scott Wilson's fine performance as the meanest man in town.

    Saving Shiloh takes place in 2005, but in its setting and sensibility, it feels like 1930s Walton's Mountain.
  8. Based on the last book in Phyllis Reynolds Naylor's award-winning trilogy, this third installment in the family-friendly "Shiloh" series is perfect for anyone who wishes "The Waltons" was still around.
  9. 50
    An OK kids movie passing through on the way to video.

    Offers exactly what you've come to expect from the series: Bland but wholly innocuous family entertainment featuring a cute kid and an even cuter dog.
