HASH(0xa30874a4) out of 5 stars A drifter confesses to murders before they happen. Really good idea, never got going. What happend to Jim Morrison?? I say C+ Jan. 22 2011
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
A drifter (Kilmer) walks into a police dept. and confesses to 6 murders...before they have happened. The idea for this movie is very cool and I was actually excited to see a Val Kilmer movie again. Once again though he let me down. This is not anywhere close to the crap he has been coming out with for the last 10 years or so, this one had so much potential but never really got going. When the drifter starts to confess to a murder someone in the police station mysteriously dies in the same manner as the confession (sounds cool right). The problem is that this movie just felt like it was trying to get really good and never got the push it needed. If they would have cut a half hour out of it and did it as a TV show in the vain of CSI or Detroit 187 it would have been great. Too many flashbacks and repeating the same conversations over and over again made the movie feel flat and left me wanting more from it. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible but it could have been SO much better. I give it a C+.

Would I watch again? - Probebly Not

HASH(0xa3aeeb4c) out of 5 stars Holy Hell Did This Ever Suck March 28 2011
By Marck Ferrari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: 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.

HASH(0xa2c8fab0) out of 5 stars DARK POETRY Feb. 20 2011
By The Movie Guy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
The movie was like a Freddy or Jason film. You know who the killer is, who is going to die and why they are going to die. The film starts out with a girl, Mary Black being abducted while out in the woods skipping rope and playing with her kitty, Shining. Don't worry, if you miss this scene they will show it 3-4 more times. She manages to get out very loud screams even though the killer has his hand over her mouth.

We flash ahead 1 year later, Christmas Eve at a small town police department. Detective Alexander Black was the father of Mary and is having some family problems mainly over the death of Mary a year ago. Then at 8:14 Val Kilmer shows up as "Mr. Nobody" to confess to murders. Val has the eerie appearance of an old fat Jim Morrison and recites various dark lines and truisms such as "It is the job of the police to protect the rich and persecute the poor." He also has his own music as he whistles Mozart, which sounds a little like the opening of "Lassie" for you old timers.

The soundtrack is a combination of Mozart and Metal. It was good, but it really had an opportunity to make the film. We soon find out that the cops who are on duty had clubbed a drifter into a coma attempting to get him to confess to the killing of Mary Black. They show the torture scene about 6 times. The drifter (never called The Traveler, perhaps "Drifter" was already taken) was beaten with a shovel, baton, fist, hung, whipped, and suffocated. Oh yes and stuck with a pen.

Our Traveler is here to get revenge in a strange and supernatural way, which the police quickly figure out. As he confesses to a killing, he is actually describing how a police officer is being killed.

I found the movie to be "Twilight Zone-like" at times, and Kilmer, attempting to be the new thinking man's Freddy. His slow monotone speeches are reminiscent of his Morrison readings. I saw this as a film version of dark poetry with cult status potential.

No sex. No nudity. Does contain blood, guts and torture.

HASH(0xa2b1eb40) out of 5 stars "Are You Ready To Hear My Final Confession Detective? ~ Mr. Nobody And The Importance Of Naming The Spirit July 3 2011
By Brian E. Erland - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
`The Traveler' (2010) is a strange mixture of a variety of film genres and older, well known (and better) movies. It's a slasher, revenge, ghost story, murder mystery tale with possible allusions to a little demonic possession thrown in just for fun. The central character, aka; Mr. Nobody (Val Kilmer) shares the look and characteristics of such iconic film creations as the Crow (The Crow), Neo (Matrix) and Freddy Krueger (Nightmare On Elm St.). Oh yes, I've left somebody out. Since it's a long haired, somnambulistic Val Kilmer looking enigmatic as he recites evocative and disturbing poetry while his victims die you can't avoid but notice he's doing a less than subtle reprisal of his legendary Jim Morrison portrayal. A convoluted mixture indeed! Watching the film the Doors song `Riders on the Storm' came to mind. Dark stormy night, a stranger steps slowly and silently out of the darkness into the Police Station with murder on his mind. It's as though the songs gone visual, no wonder Kilmer decided to take the role.

What works well in `The Traveler' is the creation of the surreal, oppressive atmosphere in which the story takes place. That, along with Kilmer himself made the film for me. On the negative side the exploration of this other dimensional-like environment was periodically violated by far too graphic violence that in my opinion interrupted the feel of the storyline, dragging it down to the level of a slasher film instead of a supernatural, psychological mystery.

Bottom line, the film has some very good moments and some very bad ones. It might be worth a viewing. Especially if you're a Val Kilmer fan.

HASH(0xa2c8f72c) out of 5 stars Unoriginal and mediocre Feb. 23 2011
By Human Shield - Published on Amazon.com

Oh, Mr. Kilmer, what's with all these mediocre movies? You used to be in the really good stuff.

This movie isn't terrible. It had real potential; the problem is "wronged man returns from the grave for vengence" has been done before, and this movie didn't really feel like it brought anything new to the table.
There were no real surprises, except the end, and that was more of a train-going-off-the-rails than a surprise-twist. I think this movie's big problem is that it revealed the crime of the 6 cops too soon, and then kept rehashing it over and over. Maybe if they'd left the why of it all until the very last minute, dropping hints now and then, but never revealing it until the final showdown, it would have been a more compelling film.
