    What makes Legends such an entertaining male weepie is the star shine. Though the admirable Quinn has the toughest role, Pitt carries the picture. show more

    Legends of the Fall is so gorgeous that its failure to catch fire seems a piddling concern. show more

    Long, lumbering, pretentious and for some a possible laff riot. [23 Dec 1994] show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    The latest offering from Edward Zwick, the director of "Glory," is the kind of movie that doesn't require much effort to surrender to and enjoy. show more

    It's pretty good, in fact, with full-blooded performances and heartfelt melodrama. show more

    The golden shadows of the waning Old West are thrown across the big screen with full reverential treatment in this solid, unsurprising rendition of Jim Harrison's widely praised novella. show more

    Walter Addiego San Francisco Examiner

    Legends of the Fall never makes you think too hard; its woes-of-a-proud-family formula takes a back seat to a self-conscious visual style that strains toward the level of myth. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    This one is hollow and caves in on itself, growing wearisome and posed, ending in a burst of salvational violence and a coda of sentimentality masquerading as transcendent toughness. [13 Jan 1995] show more

    This is a great movie. It keeps moving and keeps your attention. It seems to have a little of everything. I highly recommend it. It just isn\'t a woman\'s film, I know men who love it too. Don\'t know why more people don\'t know about this film. Also, for anyone who is a Brad Pitt fan, you need to see this one. Even if you are not, you will still love this movie.
