Sacramento News & Review

James Redfield's best seller hits the big screen with a dull thud.

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.

This is just dogma delivered in the blunt tones of an old classroom hygiene film.

... tedious and ill-made claptrap it makes staring at your hands seem like four-star entertainment by comparison.

[The film is] arguably as effective as Ambien at inducing sleep, but possible side effects include uncontrollable laughter.

One would think that since the book sold 14 million copies, Hollywood would have bought the film rights waay back then , but they didn't I can now see why.

A delectable fusion of New Age babble and luridly bad filmmaking based on the best-selling 1993 book by James Redfield.

The movie is flatly acted and extremely ill-paced, lacking any sense of urgency, momentum or fun.

The Celestine Prophecy Movie never transcends either the look or the feel of a cult recruitment film crossed with a Christian-network infomercial.

Armand Mastroianni brings James Redfield's huge bestseller to the screen with all the care it deserves ... which is none.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

If "The Da Vinci Code" were based on New Age theories similar to those in "What the Bleep Do We Know?" -- and if it were terrible -- the result would be "The Celestine Prophecy Movie."

So clumsily made on every level -- acting, dialogue, decor, lighting, editing, scoring -- that it would never have found its way into theaters if there weren't the name of a best-seller to slap on it.

A thrill-less thriller.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

Based on the best-selling self-help book, the movie shares the book's chief flaw, which is that it's so awkwardly put together that it's hard to concentrate on the interesting ideas it may contain.

Believer and skeptic alike can agree on one thing: It is a transcendentally awful movie.

Spiritual epiphany is tough to convey onscreen, and near impossible in the hands of wooden actors.

How's this for a prophecy: This earnest but hokey adaptation of James Redfield's New Age best-seller won't last more than a few weeks in theaters.

The movie is self-conscious and lacks dramatic tension, and the dialogue sounds like people reading passages from James Redfield's novel ...

... indifferent direction douses whatever conviction gave the novel its ardent following.

The film does have some decent production values, but the story fails to generate much tension, perhaps because the external forces that oppose the protagonist are drawn without subtlety.
