Critic Review - Chicago Reader

Sincere, capable, at times moving, but overextended, this picture is seriously hampered by its tendency to linger over everything -- especially landscapes with silhouetted figures, and not excluding its own good intentions.

No, actually Mr.Rosenbaum is a very good critic, and by "legend movies" I'm guessing you mean your pet movies that you have a personal affinity for. I read Rosenbaum's full review and I think he is right on.

I would actually like to correct myself. Upon a second watching I have discovered that Mr. Rosenbaum is incorrect, in that he does not go far enough to truly express how terrible this movie is. I could go on a long summation of how this is one of the most awful films I have ever seen, how it has the emotional evocation of a toothpaste commercial, but instead I choose not to waste my time and will simply state that if you don't expect much from your movies, if you don't mind a thick layer of processed ham and cheese on your popcorn, if you think Kevin Costner can act, this just may be the film for you.

jimi, give me some evidence from certain scenes from the movie why this is the worst movie of all time. Although i've only seen this movie once, i somewhat agree with you that kevin costner's acting isn't so great.

but to me, it was a good movie. the beginning with him riding on his horse in front of a row of guns with his arms wide out, that was kinda weird and i didnt get that part.

Only a true neanderthal would make a statement like that. This film won Best Picture for a reason.
