The scenes feel like dominoes -- they once stood in a progression with room to breathe between, but now they're down, overlapping each other, their potential energy stolen.

Zellweger's performance is major reason to catch this movie.

When the reel stops, the film will be remembered only as a muddled and tiresome misadventure.

Cold Mountain is one cold teat -- tough and lifeless, yielding nothing. When even a semi-nude Jude Law can't save a movie, it's time to go direct to video.

Minghella crafts a complex and entertaining two-and-a-half hours with a cast who play their roles perfectly.

One of those rare pictures that makes you believe a viewing two decades from now will be just as grand as a viewing today.
| Original Score: 4/4

Like Dr. Zhivago of 1965, Cold Mountain is a tragic romance set amid a cataclysmic civil war.

While the film is handsome to look at and has its fair share of realism, it also gets plenty sappy along the way.

It's a depressing, violent and simplistic film that encourages the romantic to dream while causing others to doze.

It is moving, painfully so, regardless what the cynics say.

Even though Minghella took quite a few liberties with the novel, he managed to evoke the haunting spirit inherent in Frazier's prose.

Una lástima, por todos esos recursos que no terminaron de ensamblar con el éxito que merecían.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

Like all of Minghella's films, the best performance comes from the scenery.

Whether we're watching the domestic struggles of Kidman or Law doing moody wandering, scenes run on randomly, and don't build into a structure with arc or emphasis.
| Original Score: 2/4

'A pesar de la falta de conexión emocional que existe por momentos entre los dos protagonistas, es un buen ejemplo de entretenimiento fílmico de alta calidad'

Anthony Minghella acredita (erroneamente) ser David Lean.

Napoleon said an army marches on its stomach. You'll need a bucket or two of popcorn to get through this death march, and you'll still suffer from battle fatigue.

Despite an epic tableau set against the backdrop of the Civil War, this odyssey of a man’s journey back to the woman he loves is surprisingly dispassionate.

Minghella is well served by his cast. Both principals are convincing, if neither rises quite to the heights of genuine tragedy.
