Tagline: “Why do so many risk so much to cross over our borders?”
Translation: We don’t know, but we bet this movie is going to tell us at least a dozen different times.
The Verdict: Eight years ago, Harrison Ford passed on Michael Douglas’s role in Steven Soderbergh’s Traffic, a decision he’s since hinted that he regrets. We guess this is probably part of the reason he’s decided to do Wayne Kramer’s Crossing Over, another Traffic-ish, Babel-esque issue movie with a large cast, intersecting plotlines, and the promise of very important lessons (this time about immigration!). We’re not going to say it looks like Crash, but we’re not going to say it doesn’t look like Crash either.
