The film may take you by surprise with its quick ending, running only 76 minutes before the credits roll. I wanted more both times I saw it.

Just about everything in this lavish, animated feature is for the pigtail set.

[A] handsome, deeply felt, even more deeply reverent animated musical.

Overall this seems like a reasonable stab at an impossible agenda.

All Disney has really done in its disappointing 33rd animated feature is revive the stereotype of the Noble Savage.

It's just frustrating because they had an opportunity to take actual events and make them into a great movie.

Its comic characters are paltry; its villain is a bloated, harmless Captain Hook; and its story line is negligible as well as palpably silly.

It's hard to excuse the reconception of the eleven or twelve-year-old Pocahontas...as a statuesque supermodel, especially as kids don't need their stories to be hung on romance to deem them, err, shapely. [Blu-ray]

"Pocahontas" isn't an A-movie in the Disney catalog, but it's a solid second-tier film that, despite its romanticizing of the "noble savage," nonetheless features themes that are wholesome and consistent with Disney's messaging.

Fine for kids; just don't expect a history lesson.

The film of the Disney Renaissance likeliest to elicit a shudder of dismay from all but the most maniacal Disney buffs.
September 2, 2008
Forgettable.

The story is clearly told, the effort is undeniable, but it doesn't stick with you like the classics.
September 2, 2008
Overall, Pocahontas is a triumph as a visual experience (though the music is unusually bland), but a disappointment as a film.

The Disney artists have created a vivid palette for the picture.

Why make a Disney cartoon and take all the fun out of it?

Pocahontas can't get stirred dramatically for political correctness, the finale will please nobody, and the songs are duff. That said, there are enough incidental felicities to pass the time pleasantly.
May 26, 2006
One of the most scattered of the studio's famed animated features.
August 28, 2005
Disney is always great about re-releasing their classics, but each time, something new is in store.
