December 24, 2003
Minghella tries too hard here, carefully placing every element but stupidly forgetting to include any feeling.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
December 18, 2003
Low emotional wattage in what ought to be a soaring romance.

Leaves you luke-warm.

December 25, 2003
Minghella's detail-rich film is like a beautiful piece of fabric, lovingly crafted by hand. And Zellweger is like a big ol' stain, right in the middle of it.

Terrible and slow-moving. Kidman and Law lack chemistry.

Only Renee Zellweger maintains a Southern accent in this laughable attempt by director Anthony Minghella ("The English Patient") at filming Charles Frazier's love story set amidst the turmoil of the Civil War.

Cold Mountain wants desperately to be Gone with the Wind.

December 28, 2003
It's difficult to tell whether Minghella chronically miscasts these epics, or if his mediocre direction stifles the cast he ends up with.

April 29, 2009
So utterly manufactured for Oscar, it was nauseating.
December 21, 2003
Feels curiously put together - it jerks together from event to event without any real flow and the two leads display absolutely no chemistry when they are on-screen together.
May 6, 2008
A kitschy, lugubrious and deeply unhistorical exercise in self-congratulation.
December 12, 2003
Those who found ...The English Patient lovely to look at but ponderous and overstated are likely to feel the same way about Cold Mountain.

December 22, 2003
When all of your supporting characters are more compelling and charismatic than your leads, your movie is in trouble.

Minghella, in his long-winded tales of love, has the storytelling prowess of a narcoleptic Ulysses teacher

January 27, 2004
Lovely to look at, engagingly acted, but empty and... well, "cold" pretty much sums it up.

Anthony Minghella acredita (erroneamente) ser David Lean.

June 20, 2004
While the film is handsome to look at and has its fair share of realism, it also gets plenty sappy along the way.

December 23, 2003
[Law's] actorly determination matches Kidman's -- there's more chemistry in their tintypes than their interactions -- although the script decrees that these cool operators make a sweet pair of sweeties.
