Critics Reviews

Variety
Costner's directing style is fresh and assured. A sense of surprise and humor accompany Dunbar's adventures at every turn, twisting the narrative gently this way and that and making the journey a real pleasure.

TV Guide
A western for people who are completely ignorant about the genre. Costner's direction is barely competent and frequently clumsy.

Is this boring or what?
...and rather silly. All rather schoolboy philosophising. American analysis of its conscience to its treatment of Indians is not usually very edifying, and this is no exception. Nice music though.

Dances With Wolves
I thought this movie was great, a realitstic view on relations between Indians and settlers at the time. I love the idea of being able to come together no matter who you are or where you came from. This movie is definately worth watching.
