Review ...The strength of Shiloh is that it approaches its subject matter intelligently... Shiloh, which is adapted from a Newberry Award winning book, fits nicely into the class of better animal-related family films, joining the ranks of Lassie and Black Beauty... Shiloh represents something that's all too rare at theaters these days: a pleasant surprise.

Review ...Shiloh is no adult-crossover phenomenon like Babe; it's a simple morality tale for children, with more sentimentality than sharpness. But it's solid, warm, responsible and, in the best sense of the word, sweet. It also has the welcome audacity to suggest that lying, even for a good cause, may not be a good thing.
