North Country is the unfortunately overly-dramatized Hollywood version of a story that has a chance at being truly important and even uplifting, but thanks to extreme heavy-handedness, ends up being mostly shrill instead.

So "inspirational" it should mate with Cinderella Man and give birth to a litter of baby Oscars

Occasionally inspired but much more often didactic.
October 21, 2005
Skillful filmmaking standing on a soapbox and pandering to the broadest audience possible.

A wobbly fiction about a real pioneering sex-discrimination case, North Country is an unabashed vehicle for its modestly de-glammed star, Charlize Theron.

North Country has a sensational story, it's just a crime the filmmakers elected to write the script with crayons.

While Caro has a graceful touch and North Country never really missteps, neither does it try anything new or entertaining.

In spite of Theron's excellent, impassioned performance, "North Country" nevertheless tends to go south.

North Country is about as subtle as a sledgehammer. It has a MESSAGE! And that message is simply this: men are pigs.

Victorian melodrama in feminist workduds.
February 23, 2006
Os realizadores de Terra Fria se revelam bem mais repugnantes e perigosos do que os mineiros retratados em seu filme supostamente liberal.

The road to cinematic hell is paved with this sort of banal effort borne of bland good expectations.

This is nuance-free moviemaking, a drama about mine-workers with barely a glimpse of what the work entails.

North Country is a "message movie" with a target so big that it's impossible to miss, which is part of the trouble.

In overdoing the theatrics and hammering the clichés North Country does artistic injustice to its own important argument.

Theron's truly raw and impassioned performance as Josey - - can't save the film from its own gradually slowing pace and seriously compromised third act.

Though the dirt and grime in North Country are artfully applied, it's purely cosmetic and skin-deep.

If you want to see good performances and cinematography wasted in a mediocre movie, that would be North Country.
