Holy Hell Did This Ever Suck,
This review is from: The Traveler (DVD)
They clearly blew the whole budget in hiring Val Kilmer, who barely acts. He seems like he's half asleep the entire movie. Absolutely no emotion shown -- and not in a good, creepy way, but just boring. He has like 13 lines in the whole movie but is onscreen plenty. Most of the time he's whistling some sort of funeral dirge. It's clear they put it in as many times as they could, as they did the flashback scenes. They show a lame, grainy, unconvincing 'torture' scene about 7-8 times. Really.
The plot is predictable at best, incoherent at worst or perhaps more accurately. The ending makes no sense. It also ends suddenly with no real resolution.
Another lame fact is that it is shot in some old, crumbling building for no reason other than to be vaguely creepy, and it's all old cars and stuff parked outside, for god knows what reason, as it is set in a contemporary setting.
I could go on but there's really no point. If you were thinking of renting or buying this, DO NOT. It is a turd, ladies and gentlemen.
