4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable post apocalyptic drama May 1 2011
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
The Postman(released Dec/97) is a decent entry from Kevin Costner,who co-produced and starred in the leading role.The film clocks in at around a hefty 178 minutes but,as most good movies go,one does not notice its passage.
The story takes place at around this time in a world where a plague has wiped out much of human civilization.What is left are scared pockets of humanity entrenched behind walls or atop old dams,trying to stave off those that would try to take what little they have left.Enter Gordon Krantz(Costner) who is a drifter eking out an existence,living hand to mouth on whatever he can find to survive on.When he reaches a settlement he puts on plays of Shakespeare with the help of his donkey.One day at such a settlement he is confronted by an "army" led by a sadistic Capt.Bethlehem(Will Patton).They are basically a band of marauders living off the avails of townsfolk who they harass.He is "conscripted" into this ersatz army and branded as one by a figure eight on his right arm.Krantz does not go gently into that good night and,through some harrowing moments,manages to escape Bethlehem's clutches.
One night he comes upon an old abandoned mail truck with its' skeletonized driver still in place.He passes the time reading old mail but gets an idea.From here on in he will pass him self off as a postman who is now a direct rep of a new United States government led by a fictitious President Starkey.The first town he comes to is Pineview,Oregon.Here he washes up,is fed and is propositioned by a local woman named Abby(Olivia Williams).It seems her husband is sterile and they want a child very badly and both agree to her sleeping with Krantz to make their dream come true.Krantz unsure at first,eventually succumbs to the ladies charm and the deed is done.

Captured the essence of the book fairly well. Beautiful scenery. Relaxed pace. Amusing cameo...
Will watch it again for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars meilleur film de tous les temps Feb. 19 2011
Le film qui a marqué mon adolescence.
J'adore les films post-apocalyptique,
Kevin Costner y est très bon et très crédible.
Le film est basé sur un livre que j'ai voulu absolument lire
par la suite. J'ai toujours espérer une suite du film basée sur le reste du livre.
