Rating: 1.5/4 -- Star/director Kevin Costner's futuristic folly The Postman is so loopy that, for a while, one wants to shield it from a critical storm that has already begun. Full Review

It's about as inspiring as a movie about a vengeful meter reader. Full Review
Feb 15, 2018
Rating: 2/5 -- Not as bad as everyone says, but still not worth seeing.

Rating: 1.5/4 -- There are those who will no doubt call The Postman the worst film of the year, but it's too good-hearted for that. Full Review
Chicago Sun-Times
Jan 1, 2000
Rating: 5/10 -- The first half of Costner's The Postman is actually quite interesting, but it falters badly in the second half with a few unintentional howlers.
Mar 4, 2006
Rating: 1.5/4 -- Costner the director lavishes all sorts of attention on Costner the actor, from laughably reverential dialogue ("You give out hope like it was candy in your pocket") to loving close-ups to gauzy slow-motion montages. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- You can go with the idea of a heroic postie implausibly rallying the downtrodden, or you can have fun making fun of its awfulness. Full Review

Product Description:

In a post-apocalyptic, totally anarchic America, circa 2013, a defector from the ranks of murderous despot General Bethlehem masquerades as a representative of the good old U.S. Postal Service. But his ruse so delights the weary, oppressed people he meets that it indeed becomes real--and he finds himself championing their rights and the American Way. Adapted from the novel by David Brin.


Production Notes:

  • Although the film was not a critical or commercial hit when it was first released, Kevin Costner told the New York Daily News in late 2000, "I loved making THE POSTMAN. I understand they're showing it in school now to illustrate mythic heroes. Does it attach itself to me like some blemish' That's just cute journalism. I love that movie the way [Frank] Capra loved IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE."
