If you're interested in the Travelers...
7 December 2007 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

...you'll do far better enjoying Guy Ritchie's "Snatch" in which Brad Pitt's Mickey brings that entire Celtic sub-culture to near preternatural perfection. It's also a much better movie. I feel that Traveler wastes so much of its potential impact with lame ripoff schemes and a confusing sense of who and what the Travelers actually are. Also, setting it in America is like setting a movie about Eskimo life (not that I'm comparing Travelers to Alaskan natives by any means) in New Orleans.

North Carolina?

Paxton and Marky Mark are talented performers but this film, while certainly watchable, doesn't really seem to get to the point.
