Review – Cold Mountain

For a Civil War movie – not to mention yet another rehash of The Odyssey – this wasn’t half bad. Clearly this one cost a lot to produce, but the expense shows up on the screen in the form of quality acting, excellent cinematography, and a fairly good script. Sure it gets a little maudlin in parts, but that’s part of the point of any marketing blend of action for the guys and romance for the gals. Overall this is a fine piece of Hollywood entertainment that would have gotten a slightly higher rating if it had been a little easier on the animals. Mildly amusing
