Decent but it's way too long.

It's long, but it's very good. Very, very sad though, what the US did to their native people. And buffalo.

A calming experience and ulimately rewarding achievement in the long run. If you have the patience for its nearly four hour run-time and look past a few flaws, this is a moving, grand journey with really good performances and exquisite production value.

Dances with Wolves is one of "the" American classics that embraces the true western genre with a beautiful portrait and historical story surrounding the rich heritage of the Native American culture and an extremely balanced perspective on Manifest Destiny. Not too mention the lush and gorgeous soundtrack of John Barry and the focused vision of Kevin Costner's directing.

Outstanding. My favorite movie.

Easy 3 hour watch. This movie does it all with Kevin Costner at its best. Will leave you wanting more.

It hurts that I began to watch this on the same day when I found out that one of my good friends passed away! Other than that tragedy, this is a timeless film, but will never forget the day it happened.

A fantastic film that I can watch over and over again. The characters are fantastic and the script is superb. This film throws all of the emotions at you and strikes hard and true with each. A must see!! It also has one of my favourite film scores of all time by the late John Barry

Probably Kevin Costner's finest film, a fish out of water story, with Costner's army lieutenant taking to a life amidst the Sioux people. It and 'The Last Samurai' share much in common in plot structure beginning with 1860's army men in crisis of conscience and them both eventually finding solace in the exploration of an outside culture.

An instant classic and must see for all ages! With an incredible cast and story, this movie could very well be the best of it's kind.

Pocahontas did it better.

Great in some parts, such as the acting and the battle scenes, but too slow and dry in other parts, such as the pace and story.

Tengo que admirar muchas cosas de esta película, la cinematografia, la ambición, las actuaciones, y la dirección, pero para mi tiene un problema muy grande y es el tiempo, ya sea la versión de 3 horas o la de 4 horas, se siente muy larga, habían muchas partes donde me aburrí, siento que no me dan ganas de volverla a ver, y eso no es bueno para mi, quiero sentir las ganas de volver a ver la película, repetirla una y otra vez, con esta no ocurrió, tal vez en unos cuantos años más le de otra oportunidad.

The movie is an impressive feat of directing and sweeping adventure. I was touched by the story and I think it is a very humane one to tell. I just feel that since the movie is supposed to have the feel of an epic, it is pretty overlong. I do admit that the time the movie took made me care and appreciate the messages more, but it takes away from what could've been a more entertaining movie. It's still a movie with well-directed scenes and very good performances. One of the best, if not the best movie that Kevin Costner has been a part of. His passion for the story shows and he tells it in a way that keeps you interested. I appreciated what the movie had to say and think it is well-worth your time.

This film is intense.
½ May 24, 2016
Though the first hour is very nice to look at and interesting. It is very slow and you can get distracted. But once it picks up it picks up fast and the next 2 and a half hours we are given great characters as well as great action and a wonderful story that educates people on the culture of Indian people. In the end you could watch 4 more hours of it and not get bored with the characters or story. It has its humor that evens out its drama and intense moments and leaves you not wanting it to end.

Sorry, I found this to be boring and over-done. Admittedly it's intentions/goals are grande, but the final product isn't.
½ May 11, 2016
Breath-taking visuals and good music are fine, but it indulges in it's own political message
Super Reviewer

Fuck this vapid shit. If you honestly like this retarded vanity project then you are too vulnerable to the hype and bullshit of hollywood to understand it, or any other awads bait peice of shit movie made. Goodfellas lost out to this peice of shit, and if that doesn't inspire a profound cynicism of the academy then nothing truly will.
