Strikes familiar notes of how the true 'savages' are the Englishmen...but in the end, the princess gives herself over to an Englishman and literally drifts away in the wrong direction of history. [Blu-ray]
The film's history lesson is too ludicrous to view as anything but comedy.
More romance than history, but kids will enjoy.
Because the first one wasn't historically inaccurate enough
A slapdash effort, with none of gorgeous colors and animation of the first film and little of its emotional resonance.
The first 20 minutes of this movie is the best, most moving part of the thing, but from then on it drags down to Yawnsville, with a much darker tone, hit or miss songs (the first one Pocahontas sings is beautiful, & the one the Jesters & Radcliffe sing was really good), & a somewhat rushed plot. The animation is still beautiful, surprisingly, & the colors are gorgeous (but still not up to par to the colors of the first one).
Even more of a lie about history than the original
A grand dissappointment no doubt. The critics even thought that the first one was inaccurate enough.
Surprisingly slightly better than the original but still rather bland. The songs are second rate but few and far between. For a Disney movie it must be praised for being rather brave by not having Pocahontas end up with John Smith. Again it is plagued by too much formula and not enough individual charm.
