Many people think the 1990 Oscar for Best Picture should have gone to GoodFellas; I might have preferred that also, but don't discredit this film for that reason. This is a great film! Along with 92's Unforgiven, Dances With Wolves revamped the Western genre, making it popular again. Nominated for 12 Academy Awards and winner of 7, this classic film is a must see!

This is Kevin Costner's best work, both as a director and as an actor. He holds a gravity and seriousness in his eyes that is missing from his previous hokey, "everyman" portrayals. The film boasts a strong story, impressive and often beautiful visuals, and a stirring score.

An easy, free-flowing epic set across the great plains of early western America. The story shows a believable integration of the main character into a Sioux indian tribe. The bonding unfolds with a gradual ease that feels justified over the three hour runtime. Again, this is another instance where the length of the movie is not so much felt due to proper editing and pacing. Done on a surprisingly small budget, and using very few non-Indian actors, the film encompasses a sense of historical closeness. Enjoyable for almost any demographic.

While Kevin Costner films can be very hit or miss, this is one of his better efforts. He manages to balance out the history with the action and drama, and yet retain a western feel. A delicate balancing act, but one that comes off pretty well.

I love this movie. Between this one and Open Range, Kevin Costner should definitely do more westerns. Oh, and I suppose that Wyatt Earp wasn't bad either.

Kevin Costner is fantastic in this western. I'd see it again and again. Mary McDonnell, what an actress! A movie that depicts the Native American trials as they were.

A wonderful look at the culture, land and wildlife that we took away from this world. This movie not only tells a great fictional tale but gives you the viewer an insight to some cold hard truths about what the "white man" has done in our "glorious" attempt to explore and settle in America. This is a beautiful film in every sense of the word. Costner's best work and what a work it is. Simply breathtaking.
