Probably one of the most boring movies Costner has ever done. I have tried to watch this movies at least 4 times, and everytime I have fallen asleep. I can't sit through a movie where over half the movie there's no dialogue.

I don't Kevin Costner, but I thought I'd give this a try and well I still haven't quite recovered.. It's a boring movie let me tell ya.
I mean all Costner movies are but I thought this might just be a little bit decent, boy was I WRONG. And today I still can't get how Costner has won 2 friggin' oscars for what!? for being friggin' kevin bloody Costner, Erhh! an outrage. That's all I have to... read more

I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again. Well, even though I thought it was pretty neat when I was a kid, to be honest, I don't think it did grow old very well. I mean, it is a really solid epic Western with a really uplifting soundtrack but the damned thing is also so sweet and romantic, I almost feels like a classi... read more

Movie Reviews (951-1000) (50 movies items)

" Western drama with poetic quality over it and give a more realistic portrayal of Native Americans than usually attempted by the Hollywood System. It feels honest in trying to tell how the White Race ruined the Native Americans and is beautifully filmed with memorable imagery, but it is a missed opportunity that the love interest herself was pure Native American even if Mary McDonnell makes a strong impression in the role.

“I already saw this movie but since it was a while back and since I had it on DVD, I was quite eager to check it out again.

I mean, it is a really solid epic Western with a really uplifting soundtrack but the damned thing is also so sweet and romantic, I almost feels like a classic Disney family feature. Indeed, even though it was a Revisionist Western and even though it did reverse the usual stereotypes in this genre, it was nonetheless still seriously stereotypical. Basically,  this time around, the white people were all described as mean, ignorant and violent, while all the Indians were described as gentle, wise and peaceful. But the best of them would be eventually Jo” read more

"Kevin Costner reaches his career peak in this non-stereotypical tale of how the West was truly won. A really great movie that really was one KC's last great movies. No, seriously..... If you were to take all the things that were wrong with Coster's follow-up flicks, like Waterworld and the Postman, irradiate them with the energies that bind, compose and allow the Bizarro world to exist (i.e. "the opposite"), then what you would get would be this movie.
