Storyline

Disillusioned and temporarily rudderless, John Woodson 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. 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 this letting go that he finds his destiny and comes to understand the meaning that had escaped him when his adventure began. Written by James Redfield

Trivia

About 41 minutes into the movie, there is a brief external shot of what appears to be a Spanish temple or a church set in the jungle. This building is actually the exterior of Ponce de Leon Hall, Flagler College, in St. Augustine, FL, which has been blue-screened into a jungle setting. The following interior shots, of a beautiful rotunda, where Hector Elizondo and the General are talking, is the actual interior of Ponce Hall, Flagler College. There was very little set design done - the stained glass windows, paintings on the walls, the rotunda ceiling - are all actually part of the building's original decor at the time of its construction, and can be seen by any visitor to the campus.

Goofs

A bareheaded kid flubbed a shot on the court; immediately after, when John compared him to Michael Jordan, he was wearing a reversed baseball cap. See more »

So-so.
29 November 2008 | by rmiller-26See all my reviews

I enjoyed the first book, read the other two books and didn't enjoy them as much.

It was a good movie if you've read the book. It covers many of the points and has a somewhat engaging plot. I didn't think the actors were all that bad. That's the good part.

The bad part is... I'm having a hard time imagining what I would have rated this if I hadn't read the book. It probably would have lost three stars. Because it was very disjointed, went into very little exposition about what in the world they were talking about, and if you didn't have the reference of the book, you'd probably be just sitting there with your mouth open going "huh?" The sole part where the movie beat all three books is that it was not nearly as preachy. The book just kind of yelled at you, and all of the characters went into these lengthy and ultimately silly expositions. The movie does not make that mistake, and that was a refreshing difference.

The book is best enjoyed when you're ready for it - either you get it or you don't. The movie is almost impossible to enjoy if you didn't *understand* the book. Note I didn't say read, I said understand. If you don't understand the message the book was trying to get across, this movie is going to make zero sense to you. Don't waste your money in that case.

But if you did... get the movie. It'll at least be a little entertainment, and you can say to yourself, "oh, I remember that part!".
