This heartfelt but incompetent, cliche-ridden sports picture is the cinematic equivalent of an airball.

Movie Info

Director Preston A. Whitmore II brings the thrill of the street to the big screen with a fast-moving tale of underground basketball that proves no matter what team you play for, in the end it's all about how much game you've got. The stroke of midnight has sounded and the crowd has gathered; it's time for some basketball. Forget about the rules of the NBA, though, and throw those college credentials out the window because they don't mean a thing in this court. In a converted rail station, the only players who gain respect are the ones left standing when the clock hits zero, and the current champions have been standing way too tall for far too long. Now a new generation is ready to take over the top spot, and young hopefuls Tech (Anthony Mackie) and Cruise (Wesley Jonathan) are leading the charge. With everything on the line and the challenge of a lifetime before them, these too young street-ballers will be forced to out-dribble, out-shoot, and out-run their more experienced competitors in order to win the game and pave the way for the next crop of street smart shooters.

  • A real air ball, so poorly scripted that most of the major plot developments occur offscreen.

  • I hated this movie. It's a piece of junk.

  • An end-of-summer throwaway that resembles last year's Supercross in its naked ineptitude and willingness to cut corners at every turn.

  • Much as they would like it to, basketball can't save the youthful inner-city players here. Nor does the ultra-fast-paced street version of the sport save this movie from predictability and tedium.

  • Just a few more tweaks and Crossover could have been something special -- a truly terrible movie to savor for the ages. But nooo, this street ball movie has to settle for middle-of-the-road badness.

  • You can't blame Crossover for being comfortable with its own clichés. It's so blatantly formulaic that it actually grows on you if you don't dismiss it in the first five minutes.

    Worst basketball/buddy movie ever. I want my $2 rental fee back. Even my 14 yo son hated it.

    Dialogue needed to be BELIEVABLE to keep me interested whenever the performers talked.The only one that held my interest whenever he spoke was Wayne Brady (Vaughn) even though he was the sinister mind in this flick...Anthony Mackie (Tech) shining moments were brilliantly portrayed in this movie...and the basketball moves were slickly portrayed. I liked this flick. Add another star if you are a Holcombe Rucker Park streetball fan ( NYC )!
