Movie Info

A desperate man is lured to the wrong side of the law with dangerous consequences in this drama. Luke (Eric Mabius) and Nicole (Marley Shelton) are a young couple who have decided to pull up stakes and relocate to California. While passing through a small town along the Mexican border, they discover all their money has been stolen, leaving them without the means to go on. Nicole takes a job as a waitress, but Luke knows they'll need more money that her tips will raise if they want to get to California, so when a local rounder offers Luke a few hundred bucks to drive a load of illegal aliens into the country, he accepts. While Luke is paid well for his work, he soon finds he's working for dangerous and disloyal men -- and that Captain Elias (R. Lee Ermey), a local law enforcement officer, has begun to suspect what he's doing. On the Borderline also features Elizabeth Pena, Aiden Campbell, and Tony Frank.

Audience Reviews for On the Borderline

½

**1/2 (out of four) Not bad, but far-fetched little film about a couple (Eric Mabius, Marly Shelton) who travel across the country and decide to stop at the Mexican border, where all their money is stolen. In order to make it to their destination Mabius takes a job smuggling illegals over the border. You'd think they could borrow some money or put the rest of their trip on a credit card.
