He has a fair bit of talent, but in general, he chooses not to use it.

Take a look at the resume, and there are far, far, far, too many shitty performances on it.

John Travolta 4

He has had some good roles over the years. lIked him in Saturday night fever, Grease. and then over the years he made kind of a comeback . he was good in Primary colors. and Michael. He is a likable actor. He was good in Ladder 49 too.   UPDATE: I have always liked John Travolta and right now my heart goes out to him .Kelly Preston and family.. on january 2.while vacationing in the Bahama's their 16yr.old son Jett died suddenly from what is believed a siezure and maybe hitting his head on a bathtub. Maybe I should not be reporting this on Rateitall. but just saw it all over the news and I feel terrible for the family. losing a child is one of the worst things that can happen to a person.

In fairness to Travolta, I didn't see Saturday Night Fever in which he was supposed to be quite good. But I did see him in Pulp Fiction which supposedly revitalized his career, and I can't quite understand why. To me, it was a role that almost anyone could have played. He seems to be an actor of very limited range. 

Update-- On a personal note, I have 2 little cousins who were extras on the remake of "The Taking Of Pelham  1 2 3" starring Travolta, Denzel Washington, and James Gandolfini, which should be released sometime soon. My cousins had pictures of themselves that were taken on the set in NY, and Travolta was extremely gracious and kind to them, posing patiently for numerous pictures taken by their mother. Washington, on the other, couldn't be bothered. I'm sympathetic with "stars" being bothered wherever they go, but how much would it have taken for Washington (a superb actor, by the way) to pose for a picture with 2 juvenile extras? Travolta may not be the actor Washington is, but he's a good guy, and has a lot of class.

I like Travolta. If I have anything negative to say it's that he could stand to say no to a script occasionally. Every time he makes another comeback, he starts appearing in every movie that comes his way. Ummmm... By the way, do you think the last two reviews are from the same person with two different usernames? Gee, could be.

He is terrible. He cannot really play any kind of emotion, he is stiff and just not good enough. He is good in movies like Grease or Saturday night fever where you don't have to be a good actor for. The only mentionable performance was in Pulp Fiction, but he was outshined by all the other actors.

Talk about lucky. his career was dead in the water until he got the role in Pulp Fiction. Now he's one of the hottest actors around, getting tons of work in a variety of movie types. He's done some good stuff ( Get Shorty) and his share of bad ones ( Battlefield Earth). He's here to stay though and I really dont have that much of a problem with that. Mr. Comeback has a beautiful wife ( Kelly Preston) as well. That's good for a One Star bump up.

John Travolta is an extremely talented actor! He is a triple threat because he is a great dancer, actor and singer! He should do more musicals! My favorite movies of his are Saturday Night Fever, Grease, Urban Cowboy, Primary Colors (he did such a great impersonation of Bill Clinton), A Civil Action and The Generals Daughter! I hope he wins an oscar one day! He deserves one!

Although he's married to Kelly Preston (a very hot woman), I still beleive that John Travolta is gay. Maybe the Queer Eye guy can recruit him. His acting ability is well below marginal, just look at the lack of box office success, in particular Battlefield Earth and Swordfish.

John Travolta stinks as an actor, singer, entertainer. When he acts he makes me cringe. His only good role was playing Tony Manero in Saturday Night Fever because he was playing a stupid, confused Brooklyn kid . It's pretty close to what he really is. He was alright in Grease but they should have chosen someone else to play Danny Zucco and it would have been better. Presently, he is as fat as a cow. The Late, Great Bob Hope used to call him " John Ravolta " . If there were a way to give him a negative rating he deserves it. This guy is another one of Hollywoods mistakes. Anyone who gave him a 5 Star rating must be on drugs and if they are not then they need to be on drugs. Or at least have their heads examined.

He might be very likeable in a dorky sort of way, but he is not an actor, and no one should ever put him in charge of anything so important as a 200 million dollar action sci-fi flick (you know the one I mean). He may have a great goofy smile, but he sucks at acting and I am only going to suspect the intelligence of anyone who willingly converts to the Church of Scientology. Don't email me and tell me I'm wrong about the CoS, because you will never convince me that there is anything legitimate about those heartless scam artists.

Difficult to believe that such an unconvincing no-talent like this continues to get roles. He sucked in the "Welcome Back, Cotter" days and he hasn't progressed much since then. Every performance of his that I've seen, and we're talking about a dozen movies, was so poorly realized and shallow that I wanted to write him a letter suggesting some acting schools he should check out. Sings like a duck with hay fever and for all the talk about him as a dancer, he's really nothing to rave about. Really weak.

John Travolta has an amazing talent that is rare in Hollywood today. Throughout his career, he has shown that he can bounce back. John Travolta really impressed me in "Face Off" and "Broken Arrow", in which he played the villian. I really didn't expect that he would do well in playing the villian, but he performed perfectly. He's pretty good at playing the hero in movies as well, such as he did in "Domestic Distrubance". However, his best films in recent years in my opinion have been dramas: "A Civil Action", "The General's Daughter", "Primary Colors" and "Michael". They were all great performances which showed John Travolta's depth and range as an actor. His earlier works are classics- he was wonderful in "Grease", which served as a preminition of just how colorful Travolta's career would be. And his career certainly has been colorful. However, what was he thinking with "Battlefield Earth"?
