This movie is amazing. The story line is amazing and the acting is so well done. It is a very long movie but it is great from start to finish.
Highly touted as a "revisionist western" that captures the reality of Native Americans and the old west, DANCES WITH WOLVES is beautifully photographed, ably performed, and rife with good intentions. Unfortunately, it is also a rather slow moving film that never quite manages to meet its self-imposed expectations. Costner's own performance is satisfactory, and Mary McDonnell's less so, but the real joy of the film are the Native American actors, who play with great sincerity and integrity. Even so, the sheer length of DANCES WITH WOLVES gives it a rather tepid quality that will make you want to hit fast forward more than once.
