Historical liberties aside, Disney's first animated feature based on a real-life character has some wonderful animation, memorable songs, and an important message.

In reality this was the story of a young girl abducted by settlers and abused against her will. Of course Disney turned Pocahontas into a teenager and John Smith was this "Prince Charming" type, anyway, a lot of historians have issues with the film. It is an average entry in the Disney catalogue.

It was decent. For a Disney movie, it was poor.

Underwhelming. That was my first thought after finishing Pocahontas. Granted, my expectations may have been a bit high, but this IS renaissance Disney after all. Frankly, Pocahontas is not one of Disney's greats, or even one of their goods. It's a mediocre film with some marvelous musical numbers placed between uninteresting filler.
Loosely based off of the real story of Pocahontas, this romance is formula, formula, formula. Pocahontas is forced to marry an unwanted suitor. She falls in love with a forbidden man. In this case, that man is John Smith. John Smith, being European, and known for killing savages, is of course, initially opposed by the tribe Pocahontas comes from.

'Pocahontas' is far from being my favorite movie from Disney, but it is cool anyway. Pocahontas is the daughter of a Native American tribe chief. She is a free spirited and a beautiful young woman, and she knows every little place and creature in the forest she lives. She also has a big taste for adrenaline and for adventures, what makes her father worried as well her best girl friend. One day,her father promises Kocoum,a brave warrior from the tribe, that he will marry Pocahontas; she does not stay happy,specially because Kocoum is not a very charismatic guy. One day,walking in the forest with her two best animal friends Flit and Meeko,Pocahontas accidentally meets John Smith.
While it's not the best Disney film on record, it is still a very good movie.
