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.

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!

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 wanted to like this movie. i really did. the first half is ok and the second half before the last 10 min was amazing. then the last 10 minutes hit and gave it the worst ending ive ever seen. this movie is one of the main reasons im not a fan of movies. so good until the end and then it just feels like wasted time. go watch something else. you wont regret not seeing this.

The plot seemed like a good idea on paper. I love traveling -- many short trips over the years, a month in Europe after college and my wife and I are days away from setting out on a 6 month trip around the world. This seemed to be a great movie to watch.

Something felt missing. The best way I can put it is that each major plot line felt underdeveloped. The core story is how they cross one of the most remote areas of the world. Most of what's covered in the movie is short scenes of them whacking down jungle growth with machetes. The story of why they were doing this or the emotional struggles just were not explored.

Might be a good movie to watch in the background, but that seems like that's it.

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.
