      Justin Stewart Film Comment Magazine As both politics and entertainment, it's lacking. Nov 4, 2013 Full Review Matt Zoller Seitz I wish "Copperhead" were better, because it tells a story we haven't seen before, and creates a world that films have rarely shown us. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 24, 2013 Full Review Farran Smith Nehme New York Post So much taste and intelligence went into these finely wrought costumes, props and sets in order to tell a story of such tedium. Rated: 1.5/4 Jul 18, 2013 Full Review John P. McCarthy America Magazine Maxwell and Kauffman merit praise for acknowledging historical complexity, but the film's moral and aesthetic limitations keep Copperhead from entering this realm. Apr 28, 2014 Full Review Jeff Beck 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. Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 14, 2014 Full Review Christopher Schobert The Playlist For this audience, Ron Maxwell's film will prove entertaining and though-provoking, at the very least. For the rest, it is unlikely to provide much dramatic sustenance. Rated: B- Jul 19, 2013 Full Review Read all reviews

      Brendan W Bro, I don't know about anyone else in this movie or what the plot was about or what the actors were doing or what anything in this world means but that dude in the crowd and the church from that podcast.... man he was sexy. Full on sex. Man, what I wouldn't give to take him to pound town. Population that extra. Brendan I think his name was? NOT ME. NOT THE SAME PERSON. ... Anyway, Jason Patric was in this til he got fired for being a shit head. 10 stars. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/03/23 Full Review Steven H An underrated Civil War-era drama with terrific performances, a strong story, and a beautiful original score! Grade: A Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad, not great at a look of upstate New York during the Civil War. Some were virulent abolitionists and others who cared I am not fighting. It says it all with NY as the city had riots and upstate people refused to fight (Copperheads) and didn't care about slavery or the preservation of the Union. [just like the Revolution as NY was in turmoil as a civil war was going on upstate 1/3 didn't care, 1/3 loyalist and the remaining patriots] Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Just saw this on Prime. Sees like a very timely movie that was beautifully set and tells a story that not many people know. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A muddled and preachy waste of film that sucks deeply from the stew of lies that is neoconfederate dogma. It pits the saintly sympathizer to the Confederacy against the tediously unvarying vileness of anyone who doesn't embrace the confederacy in upstate New York. Heavy handed, plodding, and dogmatic. It would be very popular at Ku Klux Klan meetings. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Somehow worse than Gods and Generals.
