Verdict on Crossfire
Crossfire is a thriller following a former law enforcement agent who is trying to rebuild his relationship with his daughter. His last job left heartbreak in the family and he finds himself being tracked by the gang he took down.
This is a slow thriller that does a wonderful job of showing the paranoia and worries a law enforcement agent could have. It shows how they could constantly look over their shoulder for a returning threat. However, this can hold things back as we get a constant hint at action, without anything coming from this side of things. This movie ends up feeling like it gets stuck in the middle of two ideas with either side being a lot more interesting.
Final Thoughts – Crossfire is a thriller that gets caught up between two ideas.
