Reviews

Adventure based on the novel by James Redfield. Disillusioned and temporarily rudderless, John Woodson (Matthew Settle) is about to experience a dramatic and profound metamorphosis. Through a mysterious set of coincidences, he finds himself on an adventure to Peru in search of ancient scrolls, known as the Celestine Prophecy. The prophecy and its nine key insights predict a new awakening that redefines human life and provides a glimpse into a completely spiritual culture on earth.

This is a very uplifting and inspiring movie version of the amazing book The Celestine Prophecy. James Redfield the author produced this himself in order to retain his creative control over how this was made and it shows. If you have ever read any of the Celestine Prophecy books you will really enjoy this movie and it follows the story line of his first book completely. I was truly moved and inspired by the message, and I will give this DVD out as gifts for all my friends. There will always be people who will not understand this kind of Spiritual film and give it a bad review but that's ok, as more and more people are looking for inspiring films to see and own and I believe that this one is definitely one worth adding to your library. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

"The Celestine Prophecy" book and movie makes an important statement about a balanced energy exchange between people. Energy needs to flow freely from within us rather than trying to coercively steal energy from others. This is an important statement. The movie I found less satisfactory than the book itself. So people need to read the book to delve further into the complete message of the insights presented by James Redfield. I also recommend "Nexus" a novel by Deborah Morrison & Arvind Singh, which has deep insights and a moving story. It would make a great movie.

Format: DVD
This is a somewhat embarrassingly corny 1½-hour, "hero(in)es vs. villains" type of movie that tries to portray -
- the potential synergy of spiritual energy in all of us,
- that by being spiritually connected we can be protected from "evil",
- that spiritually inclined people may have "synchronicity" with each other (i.e. be brought together at the right moments by divine intervention),
- that heaven & hell are nowhere else except here on earth,
- and that we, as humans, have an evolutionary higher purpose in the universe.

If I didn't know that what was being portrayed in the movie is conceptually feasible, I would have given it only a 1 star rating for the mediocre acting and poor plot alone.

The problem with attempts to portray ethereal matters visually is that ethereal matters are simply not apparent in the material world and only reflect in our subjective perceptions of them. Spiritual phenomena are subliminal in most people, and the visual portrayal of spiritual perception in this movie would be unreal for anyone having spiritual perception. But hey, it's only a movie, and it could possibly stimulate novice spiritual aspirants to seek "the light" in some way or other.

I would give it 6 stars for bringing to the attention of audiences the possibilities of enlightenment by spiritual endeavour, which is a difficult yet admirable attempt by the movie makers, but minus 4 stars for the poor plot and mediocre acting of the main actors. (Only the movie's army General gave a convincing performance). I haven't read any of the books on which the movie is based, so I have not compared the movie with the books.

I don't think I can adequately describe how bad this film was. I loved the books and found them really enlightening and was looking forward to seeing how they could translate the first book to film. Not very well. The acting was poor and the spiritual elements were crammed in and badly explained. At the end of the day it is supposed to be a film and as such should give some enjoyment factor but the plotting around the spiritual elements was very sloppy and the film was dull and cheesy. A missed opportunity.
If you loved the books go and read them again but give this trash a miss.

For those who say this is new age twaddle, they clearly have no idea and can provide no substance to their argument to say why new age or spiritual ideas are somehow wrong... tell me what's wrong with recognising our faults, or control dramas, or loving others? Not sure why one reviewer thinks this film is made in soft focus... it isn't, perhaps there was something wrong with their TV.

As a standalone film, it certainly isn't something that's going to compete with hollywood blockbuster special effects or high impact action movies, and if you've no interest in spiritual matters or the philosophy of happy living then it's not going to be for you. However, if you've read the book(s) and like what you read, then this film acts as a good reminder of the concepts provided.

In the 1 and a half hours of the film, there's clearly not enough time to go into the details of the insights that are presented in the book, and you'll recognise that certain details from the book have been left out. It may have been more complete if done as a 6 hour total, 4 part serial set, but I guess budgets and timescales didn't allow for that.

The exras are just the trailer (as you can see on the Amazon website anyway) and a 25 minute "making of", which has some interesting discussion with the actors, but doesn't offer any further insight into to the film or book.

If you liked the book, it's worth seeing the film.
