Great cinematography. North Americanized version of First Nations story.
Watch FNX programs to get a less distorted perspective contemporary.
1990 PG 13. A beautiful story about the plains Indians during the 1870's. K. Costner's masterpiece everyone should watch. The music sound track is extraordinary and the majestic cinematography is outstanding.
the cinematography alone is worth the price of admission, the rest is Hollywood, but with Homeric intentions, not unimpressively, surprisingly, achieved, Mary McDonnell is stunning
VERY GOOD 1990 multi award winning film. Kind of long - I watched it in two sittings - glad I did.
Remember how this won best picture over "Goodfellas?" Man, the 90s were wild!
Kevin Costner you deserve Five Stars for "Dancing With The Wolves". You and your cast don't overplay the part of the settlers coming West. You keep it to an honest portrayal of both the Indians and the Settlers. In time more movie fans will look upon "Dancing With The Wolves" as a masterpiece of film making!
During Kostner's "I'm a star, and I can do what I want" phase, but still has a lot of good stuff in it.
Dances with the Wolves is a wonderful story with Kevin Costner in the lead. If your like me and you enjoy stories of the American Frontier and our relationship with the Indian Tribes, then this is for you. I thought it an honest portrayal of the Indians and the pioneers moving into the Western parts of America. This movie has got it all, a good cast, top screenplay and great photography. One of the best Westerns I have ever seen!
This movie is very moving,and the music,composed by the late John Barry,is very touching,and worth the price of admission.John Barry had asked Mr.Costner,what type of music,and he replied,that he likes big orchestra music,(today would be easy listening.),the album is filled with gorgeous music.worth the small fee.just the best.!
An epic, although Kevin Costner's voiceover narration is flat and emotionless.
A near perfect historical drama. Plenty of iconic scenes. Great story, setting, dialoge and action. Costner's narration is kind of monotone, but this is just a modern classic. Starts great and ends well. Never felt overlong, but is a very long movie. Moves at a swift enough pace and entertaining enough to sustain the long runtime.
This brilliantly scripted film is inarguably the shining moment of director/actor Kevin Costner's film career. He's acted in countless movies; some very good... and some, well... I'll leave it at that. Gorgeous cinematography of sweeping prairies; a dramatic score... But above all, the powerful, heartfelt narrative of an exiled soldier, virtually abandoned by his own, and adopted by a gentle people branded as 'savages'. It's a lonely pictorial of tolerance, of love... Of the travesty done to the Native American people in the name of "civilization". This film is to Costner what "Braveheart" is to Gibson. A magnificent masterpiece. FIVE STARS.
Very good movie, worth watching at least once. (Small tidbit of trivia Close to a million feet of film was shot in total.) This movie wont disappoint, but clear your schedule because it is long!
Watching this movie is much like living it with Kevin Costner's character, Lt. John Dunbar. In his journal keeping we are given access to his most private thoughts and insights, and it is this quality that adds so much to the movie. I highly recommend it to anyone that has not seen it and it is an instatnt classic for those who have.
