Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

Disney's direct-to-video sequel to their 1995 hit places Pocahontas in harm's way in London, where she is almost tossed into jail and has some other mishaps. She's not alone, however: a cute raccoon named Meeko does a nice job as the obligatory funny animal. The songs are about as memorable as those in the first film, but the art and animation maintain far higher standards than most animated sequels dumped onto tape. If you don't drive yourself nuts thinking about the appalling historical revisionism at work here, this is passable family entertainment. --Tom Keogh

1.0 out of 5 stars WORST EVER May 12 2004
Format:DVD
This movie was soooo BORING!!!!! Well okay it was ok at the beginning but near the end I was thinking to myself "I'll only like this movie if she chooses John Smith!" And guess what? SHE DIDNT!!!!! GRRRR it makes me heartbroken! I looved the Lion King 2, Peter Pan 2, and Aladdin 3 (Aladdin 2 was reeeally bad heheh) and I havnt seen any other sequals unless you count Fantasia 2000 which I think doesnt seem like a sequal at all, more like a whole new movie! But back to Pocahontas... I LOOOOOVED JOHN SMITH!!! I know that the person I borrowed this movie from is only keeping it to expand her disney collection... (she has probably almost all of them) and if Ariel can see Eric once, fall in love, take some time off and finally come up with a plan to see him again (which, when you think about it, must take some time for the movie to progress and such) She still loves him and marries him BUT WHAT ABOUT JOHN SMITH????? IT'S ALMOST THE SAME!!!!!! DONT RENT THIS MOVIE!!!!!! SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent! Feb. 27 2010
By Bookie
Format:DVD
The problem with this movie is that it is a major contradiction to the first film, and consequently that spoils any possible enjoyment.

Yes, it is true that the real Pocahontas married John Rolfe. But she never had a romantic relationship with John Smith either - she was only 12 when they met!

When Disney created the original film, they only loosely based it around the story of Pocahontas - they focused on the depth of human hatred and how it can be overcome through love. If they had depicted a friendship between John Smith and Pocahontas, this movie would be fine. Yet, they decided to create a love story.

I don't understand why Disney changed its focus; why bother making this film "historically accurate" (which it isn't, by the way, as Pocahontas died of smallpox before she returned home) at the expense of the truly MOVING tale we were shown in the original?

In addition, these changes have also had a negative impact on the characters, many of whom have become quite two dimensional. In particular, the witty, devoted John Smith has become a "punny" self-focused character who is only really involved for supposed comic relief, so that the viewers will warm up to John Rolfe, the new romantic hero. Pocahontas also comes across as a little fickle.

As for the animation - it's very mundane, in comparison to the beautiful drawing in the previous.

Maybe I am being too harsh on this film. Yes, the plot is interesting enough, but it doesn't hold a candle to the emotional roller-coaster of the original, and I think that is why I dislike it. It's too inconsistent and, to be frank, I like to just pretend it doesn't exist. Why does Disney feel the need to ruin amazing films with tacky sequels? The first movie had a perfect, albeit bittersweet, ending.

5.0 out of 5 stars You know what? It was great. Nov. 22 2008
Format:DVD
A lot of people say that this movie is the worst movie ever, because it 'ruined' the first one.

I don't think so...

So sure, she doesn't get with John Smith in the end...but it was still amazing. And Smith sorta sounded like a jerk in this movie anyway...

I happened to think this movie was really funny and great, but obviously not many other people do...

1.0 out of 5 stars The Worst Movie in the World!!! March 15 2004
By Dash
Format:DVD
There's only one word to describe how I feel about this movie: HATE!!!
This was probably one of the first Disney sequels I ever saw, and also the worst. Even "The Return of Jafar" was better than this one, and that's saying alot!! I can't believe she ditched John Smith. It just dosn't make any sense. Mr. Rolphe isn't very outstanding either. Though they never show it in this movie (I don't think), there is a little bit of a historical record in it. Pocahontas DID marry John Rolfe. She went back to London with him and became a Christian. About 2 years later she died of a disease.
I have this sense of knowing when a movie is bad from the very beginning. After Flit smashes into that flower painting I knew this would be a bad movie; and it is!! I finally had to sell this movie to forget about it forever. Thankfully, I can now watch the first Pocahontas in peace, without worry. :)
So please, don't waste your money on this garbage. Buy a good, decent film instead. Like Finding Nemo....

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible movie compared to the original Feb. 13 2004
Format:DVD
I have to agree that people either love this movie or hate it. I think it's stupid. The biggest disappointment is that Pocahontas marries John Rolfe while John Smith watches in the background. That's how it ends. What the heck?!!? What happened to "I can't leave you" and "I love you" from the first one? Now Pocahontas hates John Smith. Besides she looks about ten years old and John Rolfe is a jerk to John Smith. I hated it!! One of the worst movies I've ever seen. It makes me sad and angry!! Don't watch it! If Disney can't think of any better movies than to make sequels that ruin the classics, then maybe they need to get some new people, because in the last several years, all that Disney's put out is sequels of the classics, which suck! Save yourself and the original Pocahontas which is a classic! Don't watch this movie!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Why I hate this movie (Part III) Feb. 13 2004
Format:DVD
I'm sorry and I know that I can't shut up about this movie, but I can't. It is probably the worst movie I've ever seen and that's saying a LOT! A few more things:
If you haven't read my other reviews on this movie, please do, because they say a lot!
Rolfe is hella ugly whereas Smith is the dashing explorer!
I was embarrased for Pocahontas because she acted like a moron with her love life!
Since when do people care about animated movies being historically correct. As if Poca1 was perfect. I say if you're gonna make it, ya might as well go all the way! This movie not only shames itself, Pocahontas, and Disney, but also makes it slightly painful to watch the wonderful first movie. This movie was directed towards kids and since when do they care if it's historically correct?!!? My younger cousins hated this movie, because they liked Smith. I think that kids are more satisfied and concerned with Pocahontas and Smith being in love than the educational value of this movie. If people always watched movies for information, then there'd be a major problem. since when does Disney care about being informative?!!? I hate that jerk Rolfe!!!!!
I own the movie and soundtrack for the first movie and they're both amazing. I hate the second movie and soundtrack!
Don't watch this movie. Pocahontas and John Smith were two of my favorite disney characters ever and this makes me sad. I wish I had never seen the second one. IT IS PROBABLY MY LEAST FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME! Don't watch this!!!!!!!!
