At first, the picture plays like East of Eden with a bonus brother; it gets sillier as it goes.

The actors fit their roles exceptionally well, but Zwick rarely allows them the kinds of crucial, intimate moments that establish how the characters feel about each other.

A weird melodramatic epic -- Bonanza crossbred with the kind of novel that uses Fabio on the cover.

While the production is attractive in a calendar-photo sort of way, there's not a speck of genuine feeling in its glossy images.

Just when it starts to seem as if Legends might just turn into a pretty good movie, along comes some tired, soap-opera plot device.

The real star, however, is John Toll's Oscar-winning cinematography, which is equally at home with the stunning beauty of the mountainous terrain and the killing fields of war-torn France.

Check your cynicism at the door, and just revel in its enormity.

Bloated as a TV miniseries two nights too long, Legends of the Fall is stiff and uninteresting.

It's a big movie that's so small on the inside it's not there.

There's a vast psychodrama being played out on the Ludlow ranch, battles between generations, philosophies, races and sexes. And the landscapes, photographed by John Toll, majestically backdrop all the personal and cultural furies.

Everything about Legends of the Fall shouts epic filmmaking and it is not an altogether unpleasant sound.

It either sweeps you up in its rapturous emotional wake or -- and it's a big or -- you just sit there and snicker. I found myself alternately doing both, though fortunately more of the former than the latter.

Under such labored circumstances, James Horner's music must work overtime. It swoops and broods and promises you that something elemental about manliness is being conveyed.

[Pitt] casts such a saintly, beatific sheen over the proceedings that he seems to glow from within.

The part is a gift for Brad: he's a cowboy, soldier, adventurer and wanderer; impossibly glamourous and ludicrously far-fetched.

Edward Zwick, the director, and Susan Shilliday and Bill Wittliff, the screenwriters, are under the impression that they are bringing forth a tragic epic, not a silly melodrama...

As densely plotted as Legends of the Fall is, it's to the credit of the performers and craftsmen that the film escapes the abyss of melodrama and sentimentality.

Emanuel Levy

A semi-successful attempt at grand, schmaltzy romantic melodrama, in the manner of 1950s movies like Giant and other works based on literature. Hopkins is hammy as the patriarch but Aidan Quinn and particularly Brad Pitt as his sons at least look right.

The entire film plays like a commercial for Brad Pitt. You can imagine half the audience wondering, 'Where can I get one of those?'
