I guess critics really like Dances with Wolves + blue aliens. Visually stunning, but a story that doesn't hold up through more than one viewing.

I was totally riveted by Dances With Wolves the first time I saw it. (The full 4 hour version,) Next time it was the shortened version. That one did nothing for me. Last year I read the book. Wow! And saw that the author penned a perfect character for Kevin Costner to play; to the "T". Amazing that he didn't even know who Costner was when he wrote it. I loved that Native Americans were cast as real people, not caricatures. Though, I understand that they were Apache or Sioux, nor Comanche as so few Comanche survived.
