Fine Historical Romance That Didn't Happen...
16 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe it is just the history major in me but this film is terrible. If you are going to write a love story and put it in the form of film then great, but don't destroy the sanctity of history. The whole manipulation of reality for a "fine historical romance" would be funny if people did not think that it was the true story.

The fact of the matter is Pocahontas did not love John Smith and John Smith was too in love with himself to think otherwise. The whole notion of "their love" comes from his personal journal. Most historians now believe that the whole event of Pocahontas throwing herself on John Smith "to save him" was an ceremonial ritual, adopting the "white tribe" (Jamestown) into the whole Powatan Alliance. Of course, John Smith, being a clueless foreigner, would not know the difference. If anything, they were just friends.

I mean seriously, he was even shot in the back by one of the Jamestown settlers because they were all sick of him (which is when he returned to England and never came back). The whole notion of John Smith being the savior of Jamestown and being in some fairy-tale relationship makes me sick, because not only does it destroy history, it takes away the credit of the people who actually worked to survive in the settlement.
