Ah yes, we all remember the Disney Renaissance as the best time for Disney films. However, there were two particular films that, at least in my eyes, came across as just okay, Hercules and this one. However, what I feel makes this a tad better than Hercules is that it not only takes itself more seriously but the characters aren't quite as bland. That said, though, it's nothing special. The best things about the film are the animations and the songs. Menken has never failed to impress me, and this soundtrack is no exception. It's simply beautiful to listen to. The animations are also spectacular, looking very much like a painting and demonstrating many great tactics. That said, though, it annoys me how John Smith is the only character who really develops despite Pocahontas being the title character and how the chemistry between the two lovers is almost non-existent. Seriously, I felt a friendship between the two, but no love. It also doesn't help that Mel Gibson didn't seem to be trying his best this time around. All in all, an okay film but nothing special.
