It's an engrossing tale, and Costner directs with the confidence of a Hollywood veteran well aware that entertainment comes before earnestness. Full Review
...The film is heartfelt and engrossing....DANCES WITH WOLVES is an epic that breathes. And it's a beauty...
Rating: 4/4 -- That's what people have always loved about Westerns -- the feeling of size which, in the age before radio, TV and the airplane, seemed the very nature of the country. Full Review
Rating: 2/4 -- The important issues raised by the film- centered on the cultural, racial and moral struggle that took place on the American frontier-are glossed over in favor of a juvenile fantasy of male bonding around the campfire. Full Review
Rich characterisations are balanced by awesome widescreen backdrops.
By never falling into the trap of allowing spectacle to supersede character, Costner's Dances with Wolves restores depth, idealism, poignancy and even wonder to a genre that had long seemed moribund. Full Review
Rating: 7/10 -- It has greatness in it. It also has some distinct, even major flaws. But it's rather easy to get swept up in it. Full Review
Antagony & Ecstasy
Actor Kevin Costner made his debut behind the camera--and won an Oscar for Best Director--with this celebrated epic. In 1865, Civil War hero Lt. John Dunbar (Costner) asks to be reassigned to the western frontier before it disappears. At his isolated post he develops a relationship with the peaceful Lakota Sioux and a white woman (an excellent, Oscar-nominated Mary McDonnell) who lives among them, finding greater kinship with them than with his own people. But his life with the Sioux is threatened when the Army appears, and Dunbar must decide where his loyalties truly lie. Co-starring Graham Greene, DANCES WITH WOLVES boasts seven Academy Award wins and another five nominations.
