    Captain Smith is spared his mutinous hanging sentence after captain Newport's ship arrives in 1607 to found Jamestown, an English colony in Virginia. The initially friendly natives, who have no personal property concept, turn hostile after a 'theft' is 'punished' violently on the spot. During an armed exploration, Smith is captured, but spared when the chief's favorite daughter Pocahontas pleads for the stranger who soon becomes her lover and learns to love their naive 'savage' way of harmonious life. Ultimately he returns to the grim fort, which would starve hadn't she arranged for Indian generosity. Alas, each side soon brands their own lover a traitor, so she is banished and he flogged as introduction to slavish toiling. Changes turn again, leading Smiyth to accept a northern-more mission and anglicized Pocahontas, believing him dead, becoming the mother of aristocratic new lover John Rolfe's son. They'll meet again for a finale in England.

    THE NEW WORLD
    A film review by Kingdom Of Legends
    Copyright 2006 Kingdom Of Legends

    I probably made the same mistake as most people and thought that this movie will be like the Disney version of Pocahontas, since they used the same characters and there is a bond between Pocahontas and Smith. But take it from me, this movie is nothing like the Disney version.

    Yes sure, Smith and Pocahontas fall in love but they don't end up together, Smith leaves the Island to return to England, and gave order to someone to tell her that he is dead. She then marries someone else (John Rolfe) they had a son a few years after that she heard that Smith was still alive. She had a lot of inner battles with her heart and her love for Smith. They then eventually went to England so that she could see Smith again. She met Smith again; he didn't expect to find her in England. She however chooses not to go back to him, and to stay married to John. She however fell ill and died in England.

    The movie for me was okay, not breathe taking or action packed, but ok. A lot of pieces in the movie didn't make sense and I got the impression that they tried to rush the movie finished... That's just me...

    The Movie was really ok, I'll recommend it. I’ll give the movie a 6 out of 10.

    Blodder, South Africa. 25 May 2007

    I've heard a lot of criticism on this movie, especially regarding its supposed historical inaccuracy. Who of those critics were actually there when the British arrived at the coast of what is now called America? You see, written history can only go a short distance when it comes to accuracy - the rest is no more than interpretation. This movie seems to be Malick's interpretation of that certain history, but the point is that the movie isn't hailed by its creator(s) as being historically accurate and should tehrefore be treated as fiction.

    Malick leaves ample open spaces for the viewer to experience the film subjectively - he knows that emotions work differently with different people. The film is understated, even more so than, for instance, a Hemingway story. The visuals are stunning, as well as the soundtrack, narration and dialogue.

    I love this movie, along with Malick's other works, but I would imagine that some people may find it boring and pointless - one of my friends actually describes it as 'nothing going on for two hours'.
