Lotsa titles, little sense....
18 September 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Right down the line, there is every evidence that "Cuba Crossing" was NOT made by the National Tourism Board of Cuba.

As you may have guessed from the synopsis (or the many titles), a group of mercenaries sets off to Cuba to assassinate Fidel Castro. Lotsa fun, right?

There is absolutely no one to root for in this mess, the scenes set in Cuba look so cheap as to be lifted from every other Cuba travelogue movie and there is a body count that would make Rambo proud.

"Yes, but is it good," you may ask. I'm here to tell you, kids, that not even Sybil Danning's presence makes this anything worth sitting through.

And if I can say that, you know there is something wrong with this one.

One star, in sympathy for Sybil.
