Top Critic Reviews
Fresh: As they might have said in the old days, this sweeping historical romance is one heck of a classy picture which is both its great virtue and its limitation.
- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Thursday, December 25, 2003
Fresh: A film of many excellences undermined by a flawed narrative.
- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Wednesday, January 21, 2004
Fresh: It is a promontory of undeniable beauty and occasional power, but Cold Mountain remains so dark and distant on the screen -- shivering in a wintry gloom -- that it hardly casts an emotional shadow.
- Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News, Thursday, December 25, 2003
If hate sends men to war, then it must be love that brings them home. Good Film! It's beautifully crafted, assembled, and absolutely mesmerizing in all aspects of film making techniques and style. The music score and soundtracks are so appropriate locked into the events and the moods of the characters. And the film's title? It does project its allegorical appeal. This Civil War saga addresses romance, friendship, and the ravages of war--both in the field and on the home front. Captures the horrors of war for both those fighting it, and for those left behind. This is a tale of hope, longing, redemption, second chances, and faith.

Cold Mountain is a very good film starring Jude Law, Nicole Kidman, and Renee Zellweger. Set during the civil war a young couple (kidman and law) are torn apart due to the war and him leaving to join it. During it she meets an off the wall loner (zellweger) whom helps her create a life by herlself....what love will do to someone...a movie worth seeing
