Audience Reviews for The Crossing


Little better than a romance comic book but for some arty shots thrown in for taste, this is best representative as a look into small town Australian life. The story: the hunk who left the monotony and intrusiveness of said small town returns for the woman he left behind only to discover she's knocking boots with his former best bud. Will the old girlfriend take back the mug who left, or stay with the local guy? For color the confrontation happens on what I took as Memorial Day for Australians (Anzac Day), where old soldiers are remembered for their duty, and that's when the core of that small town life is revealed as empty except for going to the local bar and drinking, and talk about everyone else in town. Seemed pretty bleak to me (but also true about a lot of American small town life). So its a denunciation of that small town life in the main, with the problem about the romance the teaser to involve us, which it barely does. Russell Crowe's big screen entrance though.
