Mr. Pitt's diffident mix of acting and attitude works to such heartthrob perfection it's a shame the film's superficiality gets in his way.
May 20, 2003
It's a man's world, but Pitt's star turn and the melodramatic underpinnings may appeal more to women.

Nice...but a little unbeliveable.

August 26, 2002
Grand tale about passion, guilt and grief set in the wilds of Montana.
August 16, 2002
Can be recommended to all the viewers hungry for movies that Hollywood knew how to make some thirty or forty years ago.

Big and beautiful as it looks, the film doesn't deliver much emotional punch.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 9, 2001
Predictable and inevitable.

Though the admirable Quinn has the toughest role, Pitt carries the picture. The blue-eyed boy who seemed a bit lost in Interview With the Vampire proves himself a bona fide movie star, stealing every scene he's in.
April 17, 2001
Just like quality loo roll, it's long in duration and strong on technical quality. Unfortunately it's also soft on plot and characterisation.

The kind of movie that doesn't require much effort to surrender to and enjoy.

January 1, 2000
This is the kind of big, robust Western love story that just begs to be filmed -- which, come to think of it, it has been.

January 1, 2000
We see ... misery, betrayal, heartbreak, ridiculous plot twists and, after he sustains a stroke, Hopkins apparently doing a composite impression of Popeye and Quasimodo.
January 1, 2000
As directed by Edward Zwick, the yarn doesn't so much sweep as sprawl across the screen in all its panoramic idiocy.
January 1, 2000
What needs to be epic often seems petty and small. Perhaps it was in compensation for this narrative inadequacy that the musical score grew to be sweepingly grand and intrusively ever-present.

January 1, 2000
Unless you are a big fan of seeing hearts cut out of the bodies of animals and people or unless you feel you must see all of Brad Pitt's movies (he is major handsome), I can see no reason to see this film other than as a long travelogue.
