  1. Reviewed by: Emanuel Levy
    The film shrewdly humanizes its protagonists to the point where the audience forgets their identity and roots for them to succeed - and survive.
  2. Paxton (who also produced) and Marguiles turn in fine, affecting performances, Wahlberg is better than you might expect, and the story is powered by a knock-out soundtrack.
  3. 75
    The script is smart and sneaky - by never telling the audience more than is necessary, it develops a keen sense of suspense that persists until the gritty final reel.

    Traveller is a low-key, intelligent examination of some fascinating people who must do plenty of fast talking just to survive. [25 Apr 1997]
  5. L.A. Weekly
    Reviewed by: Ernest Hardy
    It's fine acting of - and chemistry - between Paxton, Margulies and Mark Wahlberg that gives this film (written by Jim McGlynn, directed by Jack Green) its kick.
  6. Traveller is entertaining in a mild, relaxing way.
  7. Village Voice
    Reviewed by: Amy Taubin
    The movie lacks any sense of subcultural specificity, though it has a superabundant country music score. [22 Apr 1997]
