Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Disney followed up The Lion King, its first animated feature based on an original story, with its first such film based on a historical figure, the Indian princess Pocahontas. The strong-willed, free-spirited heroine (voiced by Irene Bedard) listens to the spirits and reckons they’re telling her to follow a path other than what her father, Chief Powhatan (Russell Means), intends for her. A saga of passion and prejudice, Pocahontas is a love story in which the heroine defies Powhatan's plans when English adventurer John Smith arrives on Virginia’s shores, speaking and singing in the lusty, robust voice of Mel Gibson. Accompanying Smith is a shipload of encroaching settlers led by a gold-digging colonial governor named Ratliffe (David Ogden Stiers); greed and cultural differences threaten to escalate into hatred and violence until Pocahontas defies her father to intervene. The tale treats the native Powhatan tribe with respect, even as it takes liberties with history and adds animal sidekicks for comic relief. This 2005 reissue is a marked improvement over the original Pocahontas DVD release, with the original theatrical version of the film as well as a 10th Anniversary Edition. The latter restores to the film the lovely ballad, "If I Never Met You," which Smith sings to Pocahontas on the eve of his scheduled execution (audience restlessness in test screenings spelled its deletion). Archival treasures include an early "presentation reel" of the film-in-progress, storyboarded deleted scenes, and a 1995 segment devoted to the film's historic premiere in New York's Central Park (there’s an uncomfortable line about the event requiring enough electricity "to light the World Trade Center"). Bedard hosts a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the film, and there is a segment about Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz's Oscar-winning musical score, which includes "Colors of the Wind." Audio commentaries further heighten appreciation for the animators' truly stunning work.
All Movie Guide
Pocahontas is often cited as the most forgettable of Disney's wave of animated triumphs that kept coming with remarkable regularity during the 1990s. But it's far from a bad movie, bearing enough of Disney's well-traveled standard components to make it easy enough to sit through. On the heels of the gargantuan box-office smash The Lion King, Pocahontas can't help but feel like something of an arthouse movie by comparison, even if it did manage to rustle up over 140 million dollars domestically. The only thing not small about the movie is the vocal talent hired for the blandly handsome John Smith, but even Mel Gibson can't distinguish the character from the parade of vapid Disney heroes who came before and would come after. Disney movies often endure on the strength of their villains, but viewers would likely have trouble recalling much of anything about the settler governor who provides the requisite heartlessness in this outing. Basing the movie on history didn't prove too popular with the kiddies, either -- for years afterward, Disney stores were trying to unload their overstocked merchandise at increasingly ridiculous discounts. But the "mouse house" can never be accused of giving less than its all, and the sheer number of people working on the project ensured that it would be well-stocked in color, wit, music, and even the occasional breathtaking thrill.

    Pocahontas the disney film

    Who hasn't heard of this movie and just loved it when they were young? One of my fave fave scenes I remembered was when Smith thinks he's being followed and jumps out from the cave and aims his gun at Pocahontas. The non dialogue scene was just haunting and mesmerizing at the same time. This tells the somewhat true story of the title character and of meeting John Smith while her and his people are at odds. I just love the Raccoon including the little dog where later they become friends, they were just so cute. When I was younger I remembered that Grandmother Willow used to scare me a little but later she was nice. Disney should go back to making movies like this whether its animated or live action but with at least a good story. The sequel wasn't that bad.

    Pocahontas 10th Ann. DVD

    I absolutely loved this movie when I was younger. I watched it over and over and eventually wore out the tape. When I found out about the additional scene in the 10th Ann. DVD I bought it then and there. The extra scene fits in seemlessly with the rest of the movie, and should never have been taken out in the first place- in my opinion. My only problem with the DVD is that the colors of the characters are a little darker/lighter then they probably should be. But it is a GREAT movie for anyone of any age!

    IT'S GREAT!

    For all confused reviewers, let me clear this up for you: this is a DISNEY cartoon-movie for kids, not a documentary. It is based on the story of Pocahontas however, in real life I'm sure there was no singing or talking trees. IT'S FOR KIDS. There are a few inacuracies, but if you want FACTS, read a biography or watch a documentary. Like all Disney classics, this one is fun and enjoyable and yes it has singing.

    Accurate or not accurate I still love this movie!

    This is a great disney classic that has an excellent plot, good songs, and is a terrific movie for kids to watch. It doesn't matter if the information given in the movie is not true, a lot of movies aren't accurate, and you shouldn't judge a movie by whether it is accurate or not, judge it by it's plot. When I was little I liked this movie because of how interesting it was, not because of it's accuracy. But anyways, I still enjoy watching this movie. When I was little I would always sing along with the well-written songs. I also like the lesson that this movie teaches. If you don't have this movie (but I'm sure you do since it's been around for quite some time) I strongly recommend that you add it to your movie collection. ^^

    love it!

    true this movie may not be based on complete fact, but dont put it down until you see it because its really a cute charming movie and people of all ages will enjoy it. it has great music in it and amazing artwork. it still potrays pocahantas as a brave free spirted girl and shows the postive things shes done. its made to be enjoyable and entertaining, not historical like a biography. really a great film.

    What???

    OK, so maybe the first few times I saw this movie I thought: "Cool!" Hence the fact that I was aged 5 or 6. I begged my dad into buying the DVD a few years ago and watched it every week until I found out how completly in-acurate it is. The Disney Pocahontas is portrayed as a busty 19 year-old "beauty". The REAL Pocahontas was probably 12 or 13 when she met John Smith who, in fact, did NOT look like a blonde surfer dude. So, my point is: If you want your kids to see an acurate movie about Jamestown, John Smith or Pocahontas, PLEASE do NOT see this!

    consumerism versus respect for creation

    This movie teaches us to be in harmony with nature and the environment (Colors of the wind). Our western culture is so 'things' driven our native Americans show us that union with and respect for nature brings harmony and peace.

    Despickable

    This movie is just about as offensive as it comes these days to the American Indian communities in America. Aside from the fact that the movie has not a shred of historical accuracy, it plants the stereotypical Native images in young children's minds and contributes to the plight of contemporary Indians. Pocahontas should be banned.
