Looks like some critics have got it right on the head...
They can clearly see that our dark comedy is splashed with action and promises a good time. This is from our friends over at the Flick Cast.
Direct-To-DVD features have developed a certain negative stigma. Usually they have significantly smaller budgets, B to Z level actors and scripts that make Tyler Perry read like Shakespeare.
So when Sony Pictures Home Entertainment announces the upcoming release of their new direct-to-DVD superhero movie Cross, we take a very skeptical mentality. It would take at least a solid concept, well rounded cast and a fun trailer to instill the slightest bit of enthusiasm for the project. So you can imagine our surprise when this film offers up all three!
Yep. You heard that right: Cross has a straightforward–albeit interesting–core concept that allows a surprisingly strong cast to let loose and have some fun making a pulpy sci-fi action B-movie. This movie isn't going to be The Dark Knight, or even its big screen cousins Constantine and Push. No -Cross looks like it knows it's place and revels in the absurdity inherent in being direct-to-DVD.
The movie stars Brian Austin Green (The Sara Connor Chronicles), Vinnie Jones (X-Men: The Last Stand), Jake Busey (Starship Troopers), Michael Clarke Duncan (Daredevil) and Tom Sizemore (Strange Days), and hits DVD on May 31st.
