Cold Mountain (2003) – 3/5
Well made and lots of good imagery and scenery. I watched some of the commentary and I think that wd be as interesting as the movie, but that’s not quite enough to get me to watch the whole thing. 🙂
I thought the story, especially the first 1/3rd, was over-dramatic and sappy. It was also a bit cliche and over acted. Unfortunately, I also mostly saw the actors as actors playing parts instead of the characters themselves.
The rest of the movie got better, but never really turned the corner for me.
It’s a decent movie, but just didn’t fire on all cylinders.
It was far from a happy ending, but I think it was a good one. Inman came back and b/c he did, he was able to save Ada and Ruby and therefore pretty much everyone else and their children. It was noble and worthwhile, but ultimately, not that great.
