Editorial Reviews

There is a war happening right now on the Arizona/Mexico border. Choose your side.

Academy Award® nominee Sharon Stone stars as Phoenix television reporter Sofie Talbert, a hard-nosed right-wing journalist who exposes liberal politicians soft on illegal immigration. But when her relief-worker brother goes missing in Mexico, Sofie's own south-of-the-border investigation traps her in a deadly underworld of migrants, smugglers and cold-blooded murder. Here, nothing is what is seems. Nobody should be trusted. And when one woman crosses the line, there can be no turning back. Billy Zane (TITANIC) co-stars in this gritty and intense drama inspired by true events.

I just finished watching the movie.....not bad. But I'm curious to know what part of the movie is based on true events? I've lived in Arizona my whole life and I for the life of me cannot recall any of this in the news.
Was it Sopie Talberts story? I've never heard of her and google turns up nothing on her or her brother. Something like this would have made mass headlines in our so called war torn border (whatever!) Were the names changed?
Or are true events based on coyotes and drug smuggling?
What does inspired by true events mean exactly in this movie? Who's facts? Where? When? And how?
Beats me!

Sharon Stone, probably best known for crossing her legs in Basic Instinct, brings some real acting and emotion into Border Run, which by most standards would be considered B-grade.
To its benefit the story is strong enough to raise it up a notch or two.
Sofie Talbert (Stone) is a Phoenix television reporter with right-wing tendencies. In real life, Sharon is more liberal. She is even an ordained minister with the Universal Life Church, so she had to do some acting. She’s working on a story about people crossing the border. “Thousands try to cross into the U.S. illegally every year,” Sofie says. “Each person carries a story, this is one of them and I didn’t know at the time but this story is also mine.”
She gets deeper into the story, by accident, when she calls her brother (Billy Zane) to tell him about her big break. She hears gunshots over the phone.
So she begins a search for her missing brother. Eventually she finds herself as cargo in a hidden compartment under an 18-wheeler with other hopeful mexicans. Sofie is befriended by a wolf (one who smuggles illegals). One can imagine the conditions - trapped in a compartment, with hot asphalt below, no water and no food. One man dies, so the lead smuggler, a very violent female, discovers Sofie. At first she is going to kill her but then knows her body count will be off by one.
Border Run takes a little while to grab hold, but once is does holds your attention. Do yourself a favor and search out this little film from Anchor Bay Entertainment.

"Thousands try to cross into the US illegally every year. Each person carries a story, this is one of them and I didn't know at the time but this story is also mine." American reporter Sofie (Stone) has just got a big break in the story she is working on. Excited she calls her brother and hears gun shots. Trying to find out what happened leads her to Mexico and a ring of human smuggling and violence. From there things get more and more dangerous, and it's all true. I will start by saying that this was better then I was expecting. While still a B type movie the acting wasn't bad and the movie really made you feel strong emotions. One of them is anger toward the smugglers, the other is anger toward the border guards. To me the movie made me feel mixed emotions. Anger toward the smugglers and anger toward the US policies as well as agreeing with the policies. I wasn't sure who is in the right in this movie and that's what makes a good movie. One that makes you feel something you didn't before. I recommend it for that reason, but the movie itself is just OK. Overall, the emotions you feel make the movie well worth seeing. I say B.

For a movie that hopes to make a statement about issues within the topic of illegal immigration, "Border Run" rarely presents anything beyond empty-headed platitudes. The central character, although a brilliant reporter who has covered many stories related to the problem, appears so naive to the reality of what is happening that she seems to live under a rock. As she meets Mexican immigrants attempting an illegal border crossing, she proves herself to be a complete idiot (maybe she's just a stand-in and the filmmakers think the audience are the idiots). She doesn't understand why a pregnant woman would want her child born in America (I guess she's never heard of citizenship). But even worse, she asks a girl "aren't you a little young to be traveling alone?" like she's on a vacation and not fleeing for a new life. I'll just be kind and say that the screenplay lacks subtlety and smarts and leave it at that.

So for the remainder of my comments, I'll just look at "Border Run" as a supposed thriller. Sharon Stone plays the reporter who is so good she can unhinge a savvy politician with one pointed question. After establishing her as a competent professional, however, the remainder of the movie has her doing the most preposterous things. When her brother (Billy Zane) goes missing, she sets about finding him. He was lost on the border leading a crossing. She meets up with a co-worker of his and they immediately drive to the middle of nowhere and find his blood stained hat. What do they do now? Go to a local bar and make out. Heck, he'll still be missing in the morning. With one random phone call, she unravels a way to get to Zane, but it means putting herself in harm's way.
