Details Release Date: Sep 01, 2006; Rated: PG-13; Length: 95 Minutes; Genres: Drama, Sports; With: Wesley Jonathan and Anthony Mackie; Distributor: TriStar Pictures

Inside an abandoned Detroit train station, past the fires blazing medievally in oil barrels, guys play street ball, a loose form of basketball where money's always on the line and ''razzle dazzle'' wins out over rules. But Crossover skimps on court-level pyrotechnics (we get a game in the beginning and, of course, a big game at the end, and that's about it) in favor of dry urban melodrama: One player is really aiming for med school, while another (Anthony Mackie, so natural in Half Nelson, so stilted here) flies off the handle a lot.
