Anyway the wind blows ...
5 May 2008 | by VisualKingsSee all my reviews

MrGoldenAge, maybe you just didn't understand the plot? Criss Cross is the movie version of two parts from the second season of Sweating Bullets (aka Tropical Heat). I think the story is good, the acting too. And boy, I love the old Jeep CJ7, Nick is driving. The chemistry between Nick, his female partner Sylvie and bar owner Spider is great but I miss his open Hawaii shirt, he usually wears in other parts of the series.

The locations were interesting and yes it was shot in Eilat / Israel. They did a good work simulating the Florida Keys. Sadly the movie doesn't contain the fantastic reggae theme song from Mollin & Mollin (sung by Jamaica's reggae legend Errol Blackwood).
