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 »

Quotes

A.T.: Look, I'll tell you where the scepter is, if you let the kids go.
Ferris: Actually, I was rather hoping that we might be able to work together again. Like old times?
A.T.: I'm not that sentimental.
Ferris: Ugh, you don't still think of me as evil, do you?
A.T.: You and your warlords have already taken over one dimension. You eliminated half the people. You forced the rest into slavery, I think it qualifies.

Immense fun.
4 March 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

As a fan of low budget sci-fi (especially Rutger Hauer movies) I have to admit to being biased towards this before I'd even seen it. But, not only did it live up to expectations, it far surpassed them. This is a slick, well directed and acted and fairly intelligent entry into the 'alternate dimension' genre.

It's fast paced and the gorgeous Andrea Roth certainly adds to the enjoyment factor. Rutger Hauer is his usual sardonic self, always great value. Josh Charles is excellent in what I think is the best film of his career!! OK, so the budget is low, but the makers have done wonders with what they had to work with and it looks like a much more expensive movie - the cinematography is fantastic and gives the whole movie a lovely 'gloss' look. There is lots of humor, an excellent villain and some very exciting actions scenes - what more could you want? A lot of people compare this to the Matrix, which I feel is unfair. The Matrix is (great fun, but) very overblown and pretentious, whilst this movie plumps solely for entertaining. Some of the themes are the same, but the similarities end there. I'd go for Crossworlds any day!!
