      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Adapted from the bestselling self-help tome, The Celestine Prophesy is indifferently directed and acted, and its plotting is virtually tension-free.

      omid f A horrible story telling by a movie. It is like not even a movie but a lecture for some people Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member The storyline is totally contrived. But, this is the purpose, to highlight the principles that allow us to evolve into the next level/dimension. I found it interesting and, at times, fascinating. The movie leaves you with an uplifting feeling. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review a g Accurate in the portrayal of the evolution of consciousness. Spot on with the dynamic of energy. Highly recommended to those that are open minded. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie creates awareness in the viewer if the viewer opens up their mind to the reality of we all have an energy given to us by God. What we do with that energy is up to us. In other words for good or evil. God has always given us a choice. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Fantastic, thoughtfully made movie with a message EVERYONE needs to hear and LIVE! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member This is a non-Hollywood independent film controlled by the original author to prevent the message from being warped. An accurate adaptation of James Redfield's classic novel would be very long and bogged down with heavy dialogue scenes, so they chose not to do that. The movie distills the true essence of the Celestine Insights to very basic form - I think at least one insight was only one or two sentences in the film. This is the bare bones introduction for people who just won't read the book. If those people like the ideas in the movie, they may be more inspired to read it after watching the film. If you have read the novel but it's been a while, then this movie will serve as a good refresher of the insights but leave you thirsty for more, a thirst that can only be quenched by rereading the original novel. The movie is a tad revisionist in a good way - It makes some actual improvements to the plot that either occurred to the author after publishing the book or came from suggestions of others. But the framework for the Insights from the original novel shine through. Trust your synchronicity! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Amy Biancolli Houston Chronicle ... tedious and ill-made claptrap it makes staring at your hands seem like four-star entertainment by comparison. Rated: 0/4 Aug 12, 2006 Full Review Lou Lumenick New York Post [The film is] arguably as effective as Ambien at inducing sleep, but possible side effects include uncontrollable laughter. Rated: 1/4 Aug 12, 2006 Full Review Manohla Dargis New York Times A delectable fusion of New Age babble and luridly bad filmmaking based on the best-selling 1993 book by James Redfield. Rated: 1/5 Aug 10, 2006 Full Review Jonathan Kiefer Sacramento News & Review James Redfield's best seller hits the big screen with a dull thud. Rated: 1/5 Aug 7, 2008 Full Review Anton Bitel Eye for Film Just about the best thing that can be said for this spiritual potboiler is that it is not much worse than The Da Vinci Code. Jul 3, 2007 Full Review Frank Lovece Film Journal International This is just dogma delivered in the blunt tones of an old classroom hygiene film. Mar 1, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews
