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.

Luckily for one R. Hauer no-one saw this potential career killer.
28 December 2011 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure if this was a straight to VHS effort or even a TV movie. But I can say that regardless of intent Crossworlds misses the target and I won't be spending much time talking about it.

Basically a misguided attempt at a sci-fi niche market, Crossworlds suggests that there are many dimensions running simultaneously, some are more dangerous than our own, and in these nefarious dimensions persons exist that would do the world harm.

Joe (Josh Charles) is unwittingly the key to preventing said guys from achieving their dastardly goal, though as a gormless college student he has no idea that this is the case.

Rutger plays AT, a kind of 'other dimensional' swami who is called upon to help Joe and his kinda cute but in a D movie way female helper (put another way: you still want her to get naked but don't care too much when she doesn't), who is there to guide him through like Morpheus would Neo – only in a 657% better movie.

Crossworlds is an hour and a half of poorly choreographed fights, sh*tty cut price effects and clumsy and confusing plot developments. They really never explained the dimension jumping thing right, but in fairness I got so bored I let the movie run while I walked around the house cleaning up.

Let's just say that it involves some sort of sceptre and Joe's necklace? The only notable other things worth mentioning is the presence of Jack Black (who it seems was playing Jack Black even from the really early days) and a dimension hopping bad guy who could not have been more than five foot two.

Rutger Hauer looks like he is sleepwalking even in his good films so it is hard to bag his lacklustre efforts too much when this sad joke is concerned, I just hope he got paid upfront.

Final Rating – 3.5 / 10. Crossworlds could only be justified as a lamentable attempt to make Josh Charles famous, or to help kill off the career of Rutger Hauer. Thankfully while it is an atrocious piece of trash it obviously wasn't seen by enough people to do either.
