Caught in the Crossfire is a straight to DVD movie with 50 Cent who has a high billing but in reality has a minor role although he is also one of the producers.
This is a low budget by the numbers crime drama told in dull flashback about corrupt cops and bad guys. It goes back and forth between a shootout by some cops and a debriefing interview with their superiors who might not be on the straight and narrow. You can guess it has shades of The Usual Suspects by using this narrative device.
Chris Klein is the star who briefly seemed to be heading for the big time over a decade ago when the American Pie films were released but it turned out he was another bland wannabee.
Caught in the Crossfire is just about watchable but is badly acted and clichéd and is nowhere near to be the hard boiled thriller it aspires to be.
