Editorial Reviews

Conner Layne (Christopher Masterson) is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime, just not the one he planned on. Having discovered that his fiancée is having an affair with his best friend, he dumps her at the altar and heads off on his honeymoon solo. While experiencing the wonders that South America has to offer, including meeting two hot Swedish travelers and being robbed of all his money and belongings, he meets a friendly couple -- Darlene (Brooke Burns) and her husband Christopher (Johnny Messner) -- who are planning to cross the Darien Gap, a 100-mile-long streak of undeveloped jungle that separates Panama and Colombia, in record time with a ragtag group of foreigners. Conner decides to join the group of adventurers journeying through perilous landscape for the quest of a lifetime and gets more of an adventure then he bargained for.

Customer Reviews

Can people actually make such movies, that is, can they get the money to WASTE?
Diana J.
This movie is simple but compelling, moves along well, combines great scenery, a nice story-line, humor, intrigue and a little, I wish-I-were-there aspect to it.
Mike Twain
Second, although the story is supposed to be one of self discovery, it has no flow, no real purpose.

For those of us lucky enough to have had a two week vacation turn into a 15 month voyage through some far away continent, this film really hits home. I have never encountered a film or book that was able to capture the peace and harmony that comes from the constant excitement and enjoyment of being absolutely free and exploring a world known by so few.

A great movie, for those that have been there.

I bought this movie at a going-out-of-business sale at a local video store. No expectations going in, but boy was I ever inspired. I've since watched the movie 5 more times, most recently, during a stint where I've been working 7 days a week, 12 hours a day. And yes, again, the movie moved and inspired me. Not every Hollywood endeavor needs to be an epic, special-effects masterpiece filled with the latest big screen heart-throbs. This movie is simple but compelling, moves along well, combines great scenery, a nice story-line, humor, intrigue and a little, I wish-I-were-there aspect to it. I was surprised at the negative reviews initially, but hey, everyone has different opinions. The movie is what it is. If you love adventure, the idea of travel, of life lived on the edge, with unexpected twists and turns; this movie has something for you. If you're in a rut and want a diversion, want something that might give you a sense that there is something else out there, you should probably watch it. Of the people I've recommended it to, all have liked it while one said it did have a B feel to it. And it does. Again, this is not To Kill A Mockingbird, or Shawshank Redemption, or Avatar. It is a good, fun movie that might just be right for you. Enjoy!

I think Wesley Keller hit the nail on the head when he wrote in an earlier review:

"Picking up where most movies of the genre fail to go, 'The Art of Travel' leaves a message that instead of deep philosophy and overwhelming drama we should just 'relax, have a beer and see what happens next'..."

This isn't a deep, dramatic flick with a genius director and tortured lead. Nor is there some big conflict to drive the plot forward. There are no villains to defeat, no big problems to resolve. The movie moves along almost as aimlessly as Conner's travels. But like Conner's journey, it's a fun and sometimes sentimental trip.

I suspect that the reviewers who didn't appreciate the movie watched with disappointed expectations. Yep, the movie's puerile at times. Yep, it's not very meaningful. Yep, the insights it offers up may not be life-changing. And, yep, there are some cliched plot devices. For all that I enjoyed "The Art of Travel" and have been inspired to give in to my own wanderlust and spirit of adventure more often.

Who among us hasn't been struck by wanderlust at one time or another in our life, that burning desire to leave everything behind, at least for awhile and partake in the adventure of a lifetime?

Synopsis: Such is the case for Conner Layne, a young man on the verge of marriage just weeks before entering college. When he discovers his bride-to-be has been unfaithful he literally leaves her at the altar, goes to the airport and asks the question at the ticket both that we would all love to utter, "Where's your next flight to?" And so begins young Conner's adventure into the jungles of Latin America.

Critique: `The Art of Travel" (2008) held my rapt interest from beginning to end. As with most independent films there probably aren't any names you'll recognize but a few faces maybe vaguely familiar. The star of this little gem is Christopher Masterson (Conner) who appeared as the oldest brother in the popular `Malcom in the Middle' television series. His character is likable, believable and surprisingly vulnerable. His jungle companion and new love interest Angelika Baran also delivers a memorable performance and her stunning good looks certainly doesn't hurt. Actually the entire cast does a wonderful job and despite what some other reviewers have written about this film there's definitely nothing amateurish about it on any level. At least that's my opinion. By the way, there's some beautiful scenic sequences as well.

You don't have to be a traveler to love the adventure/romance "The Art of Travel," but you must want to know how bad days can make lemonade out of lemons. If Lonely Planet lines your book shelves at home, seeing this movie may be a nostalgic two hours.

"The Art of Travel" begins with groom-to-be Conner Layne (Christopher Masterson) examining his choices in life while at the alter with his Bride-to-be. This is the hook for Conner's soul searching adventure as he embarks on his honeymoon by himself, switching his ticket from the tame waters of Cancun for Managua Nicaragua. This 9 week journey through Central America leaves him robbed, broke, but with a cultural group of new friends nobody could ever forget. In Panama he meets Chris Loren (Johnny Messner) and his wife Darlene(Brooke Burns) who are looking for one more traveler to join their expedition to cross The Darien Gap - a swath of jungle betwen Panama & Columbia where no roads exist and conditions turn from benign to deadly in a matter of seconds. Their master plan is to break a World Record by driving a Jeep through this dangerous part of the world. Conner finds himself on board for the 369 day trip with six other foreign travelers who are seeking the fruit of adventure, battling heavy rain, deadly switchbacks, swollen rivers,bugs,revolutionaries and a few practical jokes.

Picking up where most movies of the genre fail to go, "The Art of Travel" leaves a message that instead of deep philosophy and overwhelming drama we should just "relax, have a beer and see what happens next," effectively expressed by Conner's dad (Ernie Lively). Where "The Beach" examines that utopian travel is impossible, "Art of Travel" suggests that if you set a goal anything is possible.
