Had googled 'great travel movies' before I watched this, and must admit
that it has been a long time since I was that disappointed. I will not
employ tired similes in this review (such as 'it has as much depth as a
well-splashed puddle') but rarely have I seen a movie - with so much
potential to be engaging - being so unengaging. All the characters
overacted, so I was left midway through wondering whether this was
meant to be a farce or a philosophical 'find yourself' film.
Masterson's character annoyed me so much that had I encountered him on
his central/south American odyssey, I would have slapped him to the
deepest reaches of Patagonia. While there was some redemption in the
cinematography, the overall premise of this movie was constructed with
incredulous naivety and could just very well turn you against
backpackers or put you off your next jaunt to Machu Picchu
