4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good for Straight-to-DVD December 7, 2010
By Compay
Across the Line (also known as The Exodus of Charlie Wright) isn't quite movie-theater quality, but stands out as one of the better straight to video flicks I've seen in a long time.

The film tells the story of Charlie Wright, a California businessman that has defrauded others out of billions of dollars. Wright takes flight to Mexico where he's pursued by the FBI, Tijuana gangsters, and Russian mafia mercenaries.

For being straight to DVD, the film is shot extremely well. Great visuals of Mexico, plus a solid movie score. Director R. Ellis Frazier, who himself lived in Mexico for a number of years, takes a page from Soderbergh's "Traffic" with interesting color correction styles. Frazier's talent shows in this film, and could be the next Antoine Fuqua if given a better budget to work with.

The film also features an interesting cast of actors. Aidan Quinn appropriately comes off as a shell of a man, as the lead character Charlie Wright. But it's Andy Garcia who steals the show, in an excellent performance as aging Mexican crime lord Jorge Garza. His role is complemented by Danny Pino, who I became a fan of from his days as Armadillo Quintero in The Shield. For being almost 50, Gina Gershon as Garza's wife looks just as hot as she did in Showgirls, though she doesn't get much screen time. The rest of the cast is rounded out by experienced actors such as Corbin Bernsen, Raymond J. Barry, Luke Goss and Bokeem Woodbine.

The plot itself is fairly simple, but it ultimately works thanks to a few quality performances and its theme of redemption. Don't expect too much if you're an action junkie, as shootout scenes are limited. Across the Line is a step up from La Linea, the last Frazier-directed movie I watched. But due to a low budget, it's definitely not on the level with Traffic or Man on Fire.

If you like crime dramas with a bit of meaning behind them, you should absolutely check this film out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine acting and great cinematography March 18, 2011
By swamp
Despite the fact that this film was a direct-to-dvd product it still has a lot to offer. The viewers looking for an action-packed film will no doubt be disappointed as there are really only two scenes with violence (but even so both those scenes were fraught with tension and well executed) but viewers who enjoy a film for its characters and ambience will be pleasantly surprised. Charles Wright, a thinly disguised Bernie Madoff type, is a white-collar thief on the run from the FBI. He does not flee to South Africa or Barbados to live out his life in ease and wealth but instead heads directly for Tijuana where he hopes to find the daughter he has never meet. Once there he becomes the focus of three different groups. The Tijuana group, with Andy Garcia doing a great job portraying the pater familias, wants Wright for the money he still has control of in order to get out from under from a group of very serious people from Mexico City. The Russian Mafia group, this headed by the always impressive Luke Goss, wants him for the 100 million dollars he cheated the mafia bosses out of, an insult to heavy to be allowed. And the FBI, with Mario Van Peebles taking the lead, just want him. The interplay between these groups remains interesting throughout the film but the chief drivers are Aiden Quinn as Charles Wright and the actual city of Tijuana. Quinn portrays as man in obvious flight, not only from the law and from creditors but from the waste that he has made of his life. He plays this role well. Using almost no dialog, Quinn still manages to portray a life of pain and self-loathing. Tijuana, which hasn't been portrayed in a film in a very long time, is shown simply for what it is; the seedy and yet human and colorful cancre of Baja California. While Wright is seeking redemption and everyone else is seeking Wright, the film glides to a rather surprising end. The plot is loose at times but the film can bear it. Worth watching.

This is one of those films that is hard to review; I actually enjoyed it but was left sort of unfulfilled. It is based on the true story of Charlie Wright. His investment company carried out a Ponzi scam investment and by the time the balloon went up, he had managed to get at least a couple of billion dollars into offshore bank accounts. There was over ten million gone in the first place so this made this Americas biggest ever investment fraud.

Charlie (Aiden Quinn) realises the game is up and decides, not unreasonably some might say, to do a runner with the cash; we must not judge he has been brought up in the world of investment bankers after all.

The problem is one of his unfortunate clients is a boss in the Russian mob. They decide to hire a specialist gun who will get him and bring the money back. Enter Damon (a lean looking Luke Goss of eighties cr@p band `Bros' or `Toss' as I used to call them). He gets together a crew and starts looking for their man, and they are seriously tooled up. Meanwhile Charlie has turned up in Tijuana, Mexico to search out the one woman who truly loved him. That love was however twenty years ago and of course he used her and then abandoned her to become a real banker.

I am forgetting `the feds', yeah they are always involved and this lot are headed up by a statesman like Mario Van Peebles as Agent Hobbs. His boss is the usual ball breaker who wants Wright to come back and face the music no matter what. Third problem for the unassuming thief (sorry I mean banker) Mr Wright is that he is in Tijuana which belongs to Jorge Garza, sort of small time crime lord of the border crossing and played by a bearded Andy Garcia who has some debts and knows he can shake down Charlie if he gets there first.

Compared to the first movie, this was tepid.

The plot was weak.
