Based on the worldwide best-selling novel by James Redfield, The Celestine Prophecy is the story of John Woodson who, through a mysterious set of coincidences, finds himself on an adventure to Peru in search of ancient scrolls, known as the Celestine Prophecy. The scrolls predict a new awakening that redefines human life and provides a glimpse into a completely spiritual culture on earth. Resistant at first, skeptical and unsure, John finds that each step he takes, each person he encounters leads him to a new awakening. It is only in letting go completely that he finds his destiny and comes to understand the meaning that had escaped him when his adventure began.
Matthew Settle (U571), Thomas Kretschmann (King Kong, Downfall), Sarah Wayne Callies (Prison Break), Annabeth Gish (The West Wing, The X Files), Hector Elizondo (Pretty Woman, The Princess Diaries), Joaquim de Almeida (Desperado) and Jurgen Prochnow (The Da Vinci Code, Das Boot) head an international ensemble cast in this spiritual adventure.

Its not suppose to be Terminator 2 action movie, its suppose to be another way of viewing things, and trying to make things better. Haven't you ever spoke to someone really negative and then felt completly drained afterwards?
If you're thinking of getting The Celestine Prophecy, please go for it and dont let others steal your chance of changing your outlook on life forever.
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.
However... I loved the portrayal of the story on the DVD. The slightly negative reflections above cannot take away from what is in my opinion a rather beautiful visual telling of the story. For me this is above all else about the use of colour and the portrayal of location. I felt that this aspect made the DVD version of "The Celestine Prophecy" into a guided meditation for me. On several occasions when I have had a day off from work and had the house to myself I have made a coffee, put on this DVD and then sat back and soaked up the emotions and ideas that to me are strongly communicated in the colour and the depiction of place.
If you loved the books go and read them again but give this trash a miss.
