Decent "B" Movie
31 December 2006 | by Sloan47-1See all my reviews

Cuba Crossing is a decent "B" movie, if you're just looking for some entertainment on a rainy Sunday afternoon. The film starts off remarkably well, but then trails off into a plot with-in a plot, with-in a plot. In other words, it just doesn't work on a film with a shoe-string budget. The whole film has a very cheap feel about it. You do get to see a little of vintage Key west before it was discovered by the Yuppies. However, all the leading actors look like they have been on a ten-day drinking binge. They look tired, worn out, and just plain listless. When the movie first came out in 1980 it managed to stir some controversy in the South Florida area, however, once the movie was seen, everyone realized the movie wasn't worth a protest, and after a week drifted away.
