Copperhead is unlike any Civil War movie to date. It is a film of the war at home—of a family ripped apart by war. A story of the violent passions and burning feuds that set ablaze the homefront during the Civil War, Copperhead the movie is also a timeless and deeply moving examination of the price of dissent, the place of the individual amidst the hysteria of wartime, and the awful cost of war—a cost measured not in dollars but in fractured families, broken loves, and men dead before their time.

So much taste and intelligence went into these finely wrought costumes, props and sets in order to tell a story of such tedium.

Maxwell and Kauffman merit praise for acknowledging historical complexity, but the film's moral and aesthetic limitations keep Copperhead from entering this realm.

Less like a peering examination of the turbulent political environment than a reenactment of a Ken Burns documentary-or a museum tour.

As both politics and entertainment, it's lacking.

There's a good story to be told somewhere in here, but they just couldn't get at it, choosing to stretch out and suffocate what good material they had, resulting in a bland and tedious tale that would fail to engage even the most avid history buff.

Its budgetary limitations show. Many scenes could have used additional takes to polish the performances, and the often-poor sound recording is a shortcoming, particularly with stylized period dialogue. The leads show surprisingly little range.

A work every bit as turgid and baldly sentimental as the centerpiece lecture at a convention of historical reenactors.

Sluggish drama ... defines this morality lesson about the unimpeachable virtue of loving thy neighbor.

Though the tale, based on a novel by Harold Frederic, remains relevant to our time, the film is too self-conscious and tedious for the message it delivers.
