Crossing Over

What to Know

Critics Consensus

Crossing Over is flagrant and heavy-handed about a situation that deserves more deliberate treatment, and joins its characters with coincidences that strain believability.

Joshua Rothkopf Time Out Rated: 1/5 Nov 17, 2011 Full Review Roger Moore Orlando Sentinel Rated: 3/5 Aug 23, 2010 Full Review Simon Braund Empire Magazine Being over-stuffed and heavy-handed are not even Crossing Over's biggest problems. That dubious honour goes to an absolute failure to address its nominal subject-matter in any meaningful way. Rated: 2/5 Jul 31, 2009 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review While the film has its flaws, certainly it deserved better than to debut on the shelves of Blockbuster. Rated: 2.5/4 Sep 4, 2023 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins This will certainly struggle to find an audience. Rated: 3/10 Nov 28, 2020 Full Review Kelly Jane Torrance Washington Times These stories might seem too coincidental and even preposterous. It wouldn't have mattered had they been well-told.

Andrew W How this movie is rated at 15% when I posted, is beyond me. It deserved at least AVERAGE. The acting was acceptable. The dialogue was suitable. The screenwriting was achievable. What's the problem?!? This is called a DRAMA movie. I don't think this generation of movie goers are used to a DRAMA movie Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/17/24 Full Review Julie D I disagree with the "critics". This movie is completely believable and also, excellent casting and acting. I found it to be moving and inspiring. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/02/24 Full Review Danee Y This movie, though released in 2008, captures so many critical issues facing people in this country and of those wanting to come and/or stay here. The reasons for and repercussions of 9/11, the desperate and sometimes frivolous reasons to immigrate, the tragic lives of too, too many people, and the extreme differences in cultures that have and continue to create this country are portrayed by an excellent cast. Watch it. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review BJ M Some excellent performances by great actors addressing an important topic in a meaningful and revealing way. The critics can shove it. It was a great film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/13/23 Full Review Glenn H 🎬Derivative yet technically well done & elevated via star caliber performances ... Highly respectable effort handling heavy duty subject matter of US immigration & the tangled web of horrors that often accompany those struggles on many levels, from simple ignorance, to inhumane brutality, and even some wry, mildly, bizarre satire... 🌠The messages / lessons to be learned: ◇#1 Reminder that the US is an amalgamation of worldwide cultures. ◇#2 Acceptance & Appreciation of those many cultures & their contributions to the entire world requires proper genuine acknowledgement & continuous education. ◇#3 Human Progress is a necessity in overcoming the constant challenges of ignorance, politics, corruption, among the many complexities of our world🌎☯️ Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 05/25/23 Full Review Ronny R Interesante trama acerca de la suerte de los migrantes en USA.
