Pocahontas

Question: Why was Pocahontas angry and upset when Tomas killed Kocoum? Kocoum tried to kill John, and he would have killed him if Tomas hadn't been there.He saved John's life.

Chosen answer: She didn't exactly hate Kocoum though. She loved John, sure, but Kocoum was someone she'd known her whole life. It's not unreasonable she'd be upset over his death, whatever the circumstances.

Question: The soldiers practically drag John Smith up the mountain to be killed. Why does he just lay down on the rock, when there's nothing keeping him there?

Chosen answer: He probably knows that if he tries to escape he'll be shot down by the Powahatans' arrows. He prefers dying with some kind of dignity rather than while running.

Mistakes

Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.
