An American legend comes to life.
History comes gloriously to life in Disney's epic animated tale about love and adventure in the New World. Pocahontas is a Native American woman whose father has arranged for her to marry her village's best warrior. But a vision tells her change is coming, and soon she comes face to face with it in the form of Capt. John Smith.
Ignoring the giant liberties it takes with history and the casting of Mel Gibson as John Smith, I’ve always had a soft spot for Disney’s Pocahontas. Naturally it isn’t a patch on the studio’s true greats, the ending is rushed, it lacks a memorable villain and it is too brisk for its own good, but it also gets a lot of things right.
For one thing it looks amazing. The character design and backgrounds are stunning, particularly in high definition, and the animation is fluid and dynamic. The lack of talking animal sidekicks is also a welcome addition. The Disney films of the ‘90s are full to the brim with wisecracking comic relief, normally in non-human form, and whilst some…
You know this one kind of sucks compared to others
At least miko is cute
I haven't seen this film since I was little and I really don't remember a lot about it at all. To be honest, I wasn't a fan of this film as a kid, Pocahontas was cool and all but this film never had the megic of other Disnye films. I still feel that way.
There's two cracking songs (Around The River Bend and Colours Of The Wind) but a part from that hardly a memorable song in the whole thing. The animals sidekicks are cute, but perhaps the story is too sombre for me to enjoy. The animation isn't exactly stunning, except for a few landscape shots. I don't know, I can't really put my finger on why I can't give this five stars.
I went in with low expectations and so I enjoyed it. This is one the most underrated films of the Disney Renaissance, in fact it's probably the most underrated. I really got on its wavelength and found it both entertaining and interesting.
This is not quite a great film, that much is true, but it's still a fine Disney outing and probably was one of the two or three best animated films of its year. It's accused of being hammy but I actually found I cared for the characters enough that the melodrama worked well.
The songs are not all hits but they're hardly all misses. 'Colours of the Wind' is the standout and provides what is probably the film's…
It looks like they put the only two good artists on Ratcliffe and Pocahontas, everyone else kinda looks like shit. Also, this is extremely boring (except for the raccoon).
I wanted a raccoon for the longest time.
I used to think she was so god damn hot. 5-year-old boners for days, son.
Historically inaccurate, racially insensitive, and altogether just a bad idea.
Ugh. Why did I rewatch this? One star for some nostalgia value, but just dreadful.
Pocahontas figura facilmente entre os 3 maiores deslumbres visuais em 2D já produzidos. O roteiro é maneiro, mas pra quem já fez o caminho inverso e acabou assistindo Avatar antes, fica um pouco previsível.
As canções são muito boas, mas não estão nítidas como por exemplo estão as letras de Aladdin ou O Rei Leão, em que se entende cada palavra pronunciada, com exceção, é claro, à música tema do filme, Cores do Vento, que é tão linda quanto a história inteira.
Mais uma vez a Disney me surpreendeu positivamente, recomendo fortemente. AH! Está disponível em SUPERHD no Netflix, se você já viu, reveja... Garanto que sentirá como se fosse outro filme.
Disney's first misstep in a while, Pocahontas is wildly historically inaccurate and poorly written. The gorgeous animation and score cannot overcome the fundamental flaws in the film.
