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 »

"The Fountain" meets "The Gathering", only worse
4 February 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Bingo is the game, bullshit is the name. Rarely has the screen been smeared with such a blown-up hodgepodge of half-baked conspiracy theories, puritan prudery, and new-age gibberish. The bulk of the story is set at Viciente, a Cristian resort in the Peruvian jungle. Think Tolkien's Rivendell meets Star Trek's Planet Baku, inhabited by dimwitted followers of a not-so-mysterious, but surprisingly narrow-minded cult of love and peace. Thanks to gruesome acting and tacky production design (the rainbow-colored visualization of the mysterious all-healing "energy" is particularly hideous), "The Celestine Prophecies" looks and feels like a discarded 1980s "Twilight Zone" episode. Factual errors regarding church history and nomenclature abound. I can't believe Hector Elizondo agreed to be a part of this. Maybe it was made without his consent, Bowfinger style. May the Lord have mercy on the director, the screenwriter, the author of the novel, and the poor souls who see the movie or read the book.
