Though set twenty years before the declaration of independence, [director Michael] Mann offers a portrait of a country and a people who have already redefined themselves.

Positively sprints through its narrative, achieving the adventuresome spirit so hopelessly absent from Cooper's clumsy and simple novel.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

...big, bold, and gloriously sweeping.

Chicago Sun-Times
January 1, 2000
...not as authentic and uncompromised as it claims to be - more of a matinee fantasy than it wants to admit - but it is probably more entertaining as a result.

Mann wasn't thinking story, he was thinking scheme. Keep the eyes and ears dazzled, he reasons, and the substance will follow.

Painstakingly, breathtakingly re-created by director Michael Mann, this landscape makes room for heroes with principles greater than the circumference of their biceps.

He conceives of the story as if it were a gigantic piece of mood music.
Chris Hicks
Deseret News, Salt Lake City
January 1, 2000 immensely satisfying adventure that makes lavish use of the wide screen as it explores the landscapes of the really "Old West," while paying great attention to detail in costumes and set design as it re-creates the period.
Christopher Null

Still too bland for my tastes.
