His problem is he basically made the same movie four or five times.I think he is a pretty damn wooden actor who has gotten lucky a few times. When he has to stand on his own, he fails miserably.
Dances with Wolves
The Post Man
What else am I missing? Sort of the post apocalyptic one rugged man takes on everything genre?
Field of Dreams was pretty damned good, but it also was pretty reminiscent in feel to, oh, everything else he'd already done.
He's like the Yngwie of acting, really. Great, as long as you don't compare any of his films to any other of his films.
