Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Its triumph is that it is never exactly boring, only dulled. It's a movie in acute need of sharpening. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Feb 21, 2015

Fresh: Costner tells a personal story that never loses touch with the vast Western spaces encompassing and defining it. Dances With Wolves is an epic that breathes. And it's a beauty. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 22, 2013

Fresh: As a director, Costner is alive to the sweep of the country and the expansive spirit of the western-movie tradition. – Richard Schickel, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: In his directorial debut, Kevin Costner brings a rare degree of grace and feeling to this elegiac tale. – Amy Dawes, Variety, Feb 27, 2018

great, great, great!

one of the best movies of altime. if you enjoy Kenvin Costner than watch this movie. this is Kevin at his best. Long, but so worth it.

One of the Greatest Movies of Our Generation

This movie speaks to the human nature. It is a window into the soul of man, and was done brilliantly. I watched this in the theater over 15 years ago, and have seen it numerous times on DVD. This is an excellent addition to iTunes, and I would recommend viewing. It is a slower movie, lacking the fast-pace so many are used too, but the content is beautiful, the message is subtle but pointed. Download and enjoy!
