One review

  • I had high expectations for this film, but “Cold Mountain” was very disappointing and overblown to me. Ok, there’s a certain amount of nice scenic photography in this film, but the script was extremely boring and way too long. If you like Civil War movies, there are better ones out there, and there are plenty of better love stories that actually have happy endings, unlike this awful film. The love story between Nicole Kidman (definitely too old for this part) and Jude Law has no real explanation. The one bright spot is Renée Zellweger, who gives the film some welcome comic relief. I wouldn’t recommend this movie to anyone, it’s just not worth your time.
