Crossing Over

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.

Movie Info

Immigrants from around the world enter Los Angeles every day, with hopeful visions of a better life, but little notion of what that life may cost. Their desperate scenarios test the humanity of immigration enforcement officers. "In Crossing Over," writer-director Wayne Kramer explores the allure of the American dream, and the reality that immigrants find--and create--in 21st century L.A.

    Awful attempt at installing progressive propaganda in the form of a piece of trash they call a movie, It was impossible to emphasise with any of the obnoxious characters, they don't belong in a free country.

    I am going to have to thoroughly describe the viewing of this epic as : "One tough as nails pill to swallow" totally on account of all of the circumstances of where I have heard over the years about the horror stories I have heard about the border patrol in LA / Mexico on what they do. Here is a film that not only shows what the border patrol does...but shows what the imigrant goes through to get the coveted : "Green Card"...See this, it is a gripping memorable saga.

    Amazing film. The film reminded me of movies like Crash, Traffic, and Babel. The film has a great ensemble and everyone in the cast shines. I definitely recommend this film.

    Earnest - perhaps TOO earnest - trying to be the <i>Crash</i> or <i>Traffic</i> over the issue of immigration. Multistory approach with intertwining threads grows tiresome with only a couple stories really standing out. Same goes for the acting, Ray Liotta's contribution notably awful and in the diner delivers the fakest laugh I've ever heard. Still, I have secondhand experience with how messed-up the issue of citizenship is and <i>Crossing Over</i> attempts to illustrate the shortcomings within the system and does include a few undeniably powerful moments.
