A run of the mill television movie... the saving grace is that the actors do quite well, even Daniels as George Washington, although 99.9% of their dialogue is exposition. You can read about this entire battle in a book in less than fifteen minutes but the film does do a pretty nice job of portraying the events. Some minor historical details were left out, most noticeably: major hail and snow helped prevent the Continental Army from being spotted as they marched on Trenton, the Hessians counterattacked twice and then retreated into an apple orchard (not a tiny plow field the size of my garage), and American losses were not zero as stated in the film but estimated at 8 killed and 4 wounded. For my taste, the costumes were too clean for soldiers who had been fighting in desperate conditions and on the run for months (more like they had just arrived from the dry cleaners). Also, the music was clearly second-rate and completely noticeable in a bad way. If you're a Revolutionary War fan or high school student studying this era you might find this film interesting, otherwise I'd skip The Crossing and watch much more informative documentaries on the subject such as PBS's Liberty!: The American Revolution or The History Channel Presents: The Revolution.
