Critic Reviews for The Traveler

All Critics (5)

The film seems to be straining at times for an existentialism way outside of its grasp. This isn't Camus; it's Rod Serling by way of Clint Eastwood's High Plains Drifter.

Even by the questionable standards of the straight-to-video arena, The Traveler comes off as an unwatchable and thoroughly aggravating cinematic experience...

The Traveler yet another feature film with only a half-hour Twilight Zone episode materials' worth in it. That's not to say it's not worth a look, but don't expect too much.

Kilmer's coasting, but who could blame him? 15 years ago he was Batman and now he's in the wilds of Canada surrounded by local actors forced to act menacing for the director of Hammerhead: Shark Frenzy. I'd be sad too.

Audience Reviews for The Traveler


Visually captivating but the story derails quickly. Good blood and gore fest thought. This is probably five fat Val Kilmers out of ten.

After seeing this film, I'm pretty certain we have a new front runner for the "Worst Movie I've Seen All Year" contest. I should have known a B-Horror movie, starring Val Kilmer, wouldn't be any good, but once again I was fooled by one of those clever bastards who write the descriptions on the back of the box. One a snowy Christmas Eve, a man walks into a Police station, to confess to crimes he hasn't yet committed. It sounded like a cool concept, when in actuality, it was nothing more than a waste of time. Where to begin? First off, this film is so painfully predictable, my dog knew what was coming next. The Traveler must have had no budget what-so-ever, because not only was the supporting cast a complete joke, but so was everything else! From the decrepit, falling apart, Police station to the twenty year old squad cars, and of course the miserable special effects, this film was pure shit from beginning to end. As for Val Kilmer, he was about as convincing as Tyler Perry is as the new Alex Cross. Seldom have a seen a more lazy and sloppy performance, with such a complete lack of emotion and muffled lines. I really have to wonder if the other actors could smell the manure coming off of him on the set. This film is one that never should have even been made, run away from it and never look back!

Serving primarily as proof that ideas are senselessly stolen for easy profit, here is Eastwood's High Plains Drifter raped and denuded w/o rhyme or reason, and to poor effect. A small twist is added at the end for ... LOL! ... originality, but its unsatisfactory as well as too late. Fail.
