Trivia

When Joe talks to his mom in the kitchen, it reads 'Eieren' (Eggs in Dutch) and 'Thee' (Tea in Dutch) on some labels in the kitchen. See more »

Goofs

Laura is pushed off the rooftop about 4 seconds after Joe, giving them an initial vertical separation of about 260 feet, which would rapidly increase until they both reached terminal velocity. However, on the way down we see they're only about 10 feet apart. See more »

Entertaining and well acted - good, not great
6 January 2001 | by (California, USA) – See all my reviews

I was very, very anxious to see CrossWorlds. I'm a huge fan of Josh Charles, a huge sci-fi fan and I had seen the trailer from this site, which absolutely blew me away. After looking at my local mall, video store, and two more video stores I finally found a copy. I rushed home and put it in my VCR that night.

"CrossWorlds" is a good movie. I wouldn't compare it to "Glory" or other Josh Charles classics like "Sports Night" but it's one of those movies that you can come away from feeling like you made a good choice. It's a movie you'll want to watch again, the kind of movie you'd buy just to pull out once in a while. In particular, the acting performances and the abstract way of looking at things made this movie.

The plot was a little diffuse - the first time I watched it, I got to about halfway through and then lost my mind. I had to watch a second time to understand it. Josh Charles makes a surprisingly good action hero with his skill and sarcasm; Rutger Hauer makes a fine mentor. Andrea Roth and Stuart Wilson could have been better, the ending could have been better too (way obvious). CrossWorlds leaves a lot of things up to the viewer which is great. It packs cool action and fun. If you want a movie you can enjoy without having to be thrown a moral or emotional appeal, this is it.

Just be sure to skip the tedious, unexplained, worthless sequence of the opening credits.
