Editorial Reviews

Star Wars meets A Wrinkle in Time in this adventure of an intergalactic war and one unassuming young man who holds the key to dimensional travel, the legacy of his mysterious adventurer father. Boyish Josh Charles is the lucky Luke Skywalker stand-in, a good-natured underachiever shocked out of his lovelorn moping when gorgeous guerrilla fighter Andrea Roth takes the battle to his bedroom. Rutger Hauer is the coffee-chugging freedom fighter who is roused from retirement to fill out the trio and face dimensional mob boss Stuart Wilson to settle the fate of the universe. This obviously low budget picture makes the most of limited special effects and striking settings--notably an elevator ride that turns into a free-floating mind game hanging in space and a knock-down, drag-out finale that sends our hapless hero popping up all over the universe. Hauer makes for a surprisingly charismatic mercenary turned father figure and Charles is modestly charming, once he loses the smart-ass wisecracks. Though it reaches for a scope that's beyond its means, Crossworlds is an entertaining bit of sci-fi fluff. --Sean Axmaker

4.0 out of 5 stars Good adventure/action flick May 8, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Rutger Hauer has never been in a bad film as far as I know, at least not all bad. This is another good one. Here, he plays his usual character: tough, laconic, and always with one more surprise waiting.
It's a "save the universe" adventure with a mystical/magical accent. There's a baffled good guy - even his mother keeps him in the dark. There's a mysterious babe who recruits him into he knows not what. There are bad guys who pop up in surprising places, and this movie's places are more surprising than most. And there's Rutger. His presence is pretty much a guarantee of quality entertainment.
This film shows good workmanship throughout, good effects without going to excess, and good choreography in the bloodless fights. If you're looking for fine art or deep philosophy, you're looking for something this film never meant to give. This is an action movie, that's all. With Hauer, it's a very good action movie. Enjoy it accordingly.

5.0 out of 5 stars I really liked it! February 9, 2004
I have always been a fan of Rutger Hauer even though he has often wasted many opportunities by starring in films far beneath his abilities. Still, Hauer falls into that essential category of actors, along with the likes of Robert Duvall, Morgan Freeman, James Garner, and several others, who consistently turn in excellent performances even in the worst of films. If you want to see Hauer hit a homerun in a role, check out his turn as a German police officer in the made for cable film "Fatherland." The part where he tells his young son the story about the watchmaker is one of the most moving, mesmerizing scenes ever filmed. If you wish to see Hauer slumming his way through a movie, but still doing a great job, check out the nifty, straight to video science fiction actioner "Crossworlds." I first saw this movie on HBO back in the late 1990s, and always liked it for some vague reason I could never put my finger on. When I had the opportunity to view it again recently after not seeing it for five years or so, I still found it immensely entertaining.
Josh Charles plays Joe Talbot, a down on his luck type of guy who never seems to get a break. He spends most of his time fretting about girls--not unusual for a guy in his early twenties--and dealing with his two raucous friends Steve and Stu (with Jack Black in the role of boisterous Steve). At a party thrown by mutual acquaintances, Talbot spots an intriguing blonde woman staring at him from across the room. She disappears soon after only to reappear later in Talbot's room in time to warn him about some sort of calamity about to occur. It turns out this woman, Laura (Andrea Roth), is an agent for some extra-dimensional rebel group out to stop a very evil man from gaining possession of a powerful object.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice little mind teaser June 17, 2005
By Lyn
Format:DVD|Amazon Verified Purchase
This low budget movie isnt the greatest thing you'll ever see but it was quite intriguing as a story and well executed. The actors are all well cast and its a pity it didnt have the budget to make it more complete and visible -or to use it as the start of a series as mentioned elsewhere. If you like interesting stories, or sci-f, this is one that can stretch your mind a bit for the evening. It's good to see different dimensions, rather than different planets and worlds, used for exploration. Pleased I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars don't expect a 6 stars film ! December 14, 2002
By Vlad
Do not expect a 6 stars film . This is not a " Fifth Element " or "Total recall ". But how many sci-fi movies are ? If you don't expect too much - a solid 4 stars sci-fi film with a lot of very good visual affects and interesting twists with all kind of dementions mixed up on mother Earth . I did enjoy it and proud to admit it .
A high school kid didn't know that his father was warrior from a Kindom , ruling most of the dementions on Earth . The day came ...and he had to find out his real meaning in this world . And I don't think he was sorry ! If you a sci-fi fan - defenatly check it out .

4.0 out of 5 stars Memorable Film - visually really well done May 17, 2004
This is a film you can enjoy watching more than once...
There are visual twists to the story that are interesting and I found myself thinking about aspects of the film months after first viewing it...
Rutger Hauer does an excellent job, and the action just keeps rolling.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Interesting Sci-Fi Fantasy August 11, 2010
I too was drawn to the movie by the Rutger Hauer name, this was like reassurance that the movie would not be bad and could be good. I was not disappointed in that regard, the movie was entertaining, not too heavy on the clichés, and also had some interesting ideas.

The movie was more family friendly than some and was light on violence; it reminded me of one of the Disney action flicks produced for general audience.

The movie held my attention all the way to the end and had a satisfactory ending that wrapped everything up nicely as a PG-13 film should.

Although this film is not really outstanding, it is good; considering it's family friendly I can recommend it for a family environment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty cool and creative!! May 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This film was pretty good for a low-budget movie. One star was deducted for a little bit of cheesy acting in some parts, but otherwise it was awesome. The plot was very creative and entertaining!!! See it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Crossworlds-Rutger Hauer September 30, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Amazon Verified Purchase
Always a good picture from this under-rated actor, Rutger Hauer. In these days of so much computer-assisted special effects and hoards of stunt-persons, his movies of 20-30 years ago are great without them.

Obviously not good, but also not entertaining. I forced myself to watch the whole thing, but really not worth the time. Underdeveloped characters, lame plot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well-meaning movie
The acting is reasonable and the action and special effects are ok. However, the plot is a little thin. Not bad if you are in the mood for mindless entertainment.
