My sister was always a huge fan of the film and it wasn't until today that I finally got a chance to see it. Shiloh is a cute and sheer emotional story. Wonderfully directed/written by Dale Rosenbloom. There is also good performances especially on Scott Wilson's for Judd. The amazing transformation of a character who is really brash with the young kid and claims to kill the dog if he runs off again to a man who changes is nothing short of spectacular!
This part of the review contains spoilers so I warn you, if you haven't seen the film don't read this next part.
Only a few films have ever made me cry, The Tigger Movie, Up, Piglet's Big Movie, Mamma Mia (just don't make a big deal out of it) but this film is the biggest tearjerker I've ever seen. Around the end when ol' Judd just won't budge on his deal of giving the boy to Shiloh, even though he worked hard for him while Judd treated him brashly, Judd exhibits the greatest change of heart I've ever seen and decides to give the dog to the boy. And at that moment I turned into a sobbing mess, and any movie that does that to me must be a good one. I'm even tearing up right now thinking about that scene :'(
Shiloh is a pleasure. As emotional as it is inspirational, it shows you what the power of love and the power of standing up for what you believe in does and I love movies that do that.
FINAL VERDICT: AWESOME!
