The film may take you by surprise with its quick ending, running only 76 minutes before the credits roll. I wanted more both times I saw it.

"Pocahontas" isn't an A-movie in the Disney catalog, but it's a solid second-tier film that, despite its romanticizing of the "noble savage," nonetheless features themes that are wholesome and consistent with Disney's messaging.

Overall, Pocahontas is a triumph as a visual experience (though the music is unusually bland), but a disappointment as a film.

Though released during the Disney slump that came post-Lion King, Pocahontas was the last truly quality Disney animated film until Tarzan came along a few years later. It doesn't touch the aforementioned Lion, but a worthy part of your collection.
