...wasn't bad for the first two hours, but then kept going another hour

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.

A good idea hopelessly strangled by Kevin Costner's ernestness.
Rob Vaux - Flipside Movie Emporium
Not as bad as everyone says, but still not worth seeing.

The postman doesn't deliver on Christmas Day, and 'The Postman,' Kevin Costner's Christmas gift to America, doesn't deliver much in the way of entertainment, regardless of what day it is.

The year is 2013. There is no order. There is no peace. Return to sender. Audience unknown.

Die-hard Kevin Costner fans may find themselves changing their mind after seeing this overlong, lumbering mess, a miserable failure in just about every respect.
