The Walker sees Harrelson starring as Carter Page III, a man whose job it is to escort the wives of powerful men to the events that their husbands, for whatever reason, cannot take them to. And its all looking like a good life, until a murder derails everything. Page agrees to help cover things up, which naturally spins out a web of events that tests both his conflicting loyalty, and his honesty.
Its the kind of set-up that in lesser hands could have amounted to very little, but The Walker has Paul Schrader behind the camera. Its effectively the third in a loose trilogy of films hes made (the companion pieces being Light Sleeper and American Gigolo), and his steady hand delivers a intriguing and very watchable drama.
Schrader is, of course, able to attract quite a cast, and the call sheet serves The Walker well. Harrelson is in fine form in the best role hes had in some time, while the supporting cast of Lauren Bacall, Kristin Scott Thomas, Lily Tomlin and Willem Dafoe add a stature and magnitude to the film.
The result is a quality drama, very well acted and tightly put together. Thus, even if you missed The Walker during its brief theatrical run, theres little reason not to pick it up now. Good stuff. --Jon Foster
While the central character is interesting and Woody Harrelson is fascinating to watch, the thriller plot is not developed particularly imaginatively. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Dominic Swayne

I was excited to see this film because I really like Woody Harrelson as an actor but I can safely say it was a dull and tiring experience. Read morePublished on 21 Nov. 2008 by Ms. F. I. Macdonald
