Why It Could be worth seeing-
         Well where to begin.....This is based on the story of John Smith and Pochhontas with a more of an epic feel to it.  It is directed by Terrence Malik (The Thin Red Line) a phenomenal Director who should do this film justice. Alos it stars two fantastci actors in Colin Farell and Christian Bale. I have yet to see Farrell turn in a bad performance in a film, and this could grab him his first Oscar nomination, Bale as well.
 
Our projected view-
          This film certainly has all of the ingredients of a brilliant movie. The story may drift some away, but you must look past that. This is not the cartoon Disney version, this is the real life epic version. And who doesnt like epics? This will be good, and could be on the verge of very godd, but lets not get ahead of ourselves.
 
Projected rating- 9/10
 
 
 
YahooMovies Synopsis:
Inspired by the legend of John Smith (Colin Farrell) and Pocahontas, acclaimed filmmaker Terrence Malick transforms this classic story into a sweeping exploration of love, loss and discovery, both a celebration and an elegy of the America that was...and the America that was yet to come. Against a historically accurate Virginia backdrop, Malick has set a dramatized tale of two strong-willed characters-a passionate and noble young native woman and an ambitious soldier of fortune-torn between the undeniable requirements of their civic duty and the inescapable demands of the human heart.
