The Postman 4.0 from 0 reviews
view all

It's postapocalypse time (the year's 2013), with a nameless drifter (Costner) assuming the role of a postal carrier in order to bring hope to a devasted town terrorized by maruading hooligans, led by General Bethlehem (Patton). If you fancy deadpan dialogue and can swallow the image of a mail carrier as the symbol for patriotism, then this one's for you. Overall, Costner offers nothing new to the genre of the stranger offering hope, and soon flick becomes a cornball exercise and extravagant waste of time for all involved. Costner's first directing effort since "Dances with Wolves." It's time someone told Kevin to get out of the epic business and stick to the "everyday Joe" roles.
