Crossing Over is so eager to go for the emotional jugular that it never quite forges an enlightening point of view.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Kramer takes on a hot, unwieldy topic in Crossing Over -- the dream that immigrants have of U.S. citizenship and the nightmare of achieving it, especially with shortcuts. I'm sure Kramer will be picked to pieces for trying something while Hollywood crap climbs the box office ladder. There are all kinds of nightmares.

Harrison Ford - in his best role in years - and Cliff Curtis are the main reasons to see the film.

If Crossing Over is less self-congratulatory than "Crash" about confronting its designated problem, it's just as inept at dramatizing the complex ways that problem unites and divides us. Here every cause is something you can wear around your neck.

There is undoubtedly a good movie in the varied experiences of American newcomers. But it would need to involve sagas more urgent and more original.

By Joe Neumaier
Writer-director Wayne Kramer adds what could be called mainstream threads to his messy script, but the result is simplistic across the board.

The Hollywood Reporter

The film plays like a garish melodrama that reproduces the most ham-fisted, polemical aspects of "Crash."

A mess.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Wayne Kramer's interlocking saga of immigration in 21st-century America definitely crosses over, from workaday mediocrity to distinctive dreadfulness.
