  • Summary: Crossover is a gripping urban drama set against the thrilling world of streetball. The story follows two young hopefuls, Tech (Mackie) and Cruise (Jonathan), who must bring every move they have to the floor to unseat the reigning champions from the throne they have held for far too long. (Sony)

  1. While director-screenwriter Preston A. Whitmore II's film is to be admired for its proponing the values of a higher education over the dream of a career in the NBA, its dialogue, characterizations and situations rarely transcend the level of cliche.
  2. A film made by people with more heart than skill.

    Crossover skimps on court-level pyrotechnics (we get a game in the beginning and, of course, a big game at the end, and that's about it) in favor of dry urban melodrama.

    The streetball scenes, much like the plot, have a few high points but never hit their stride.

    Much as they would like it to, basketball can't save the youthful inner-city players here. Nor does the ultra-fast-paced street version of the sport save this movie from predictability and tedium.

    The entire movie seems to have about the same budget as a 30-second sneaker commercial. I'm not talking Nike, either. I'm talking a commercial for Steve's Second-Hand Sneaker World and Falafel Emporium that you'd see on NY1 News at 3:08 a.m.

    A retarded attempt to match up to films like Coach Carter. It is just utterly stupid and annoying. Its like watching Simon Cowell dance for 2 hours.

    So bad I wanted to gouge my eyes out. I hate when people make a movie just because they can. You should only make a movie if you have a good plot good characters, etc, etc Expand
