Sign In. The Crossing I Hide Spoilers. This is an epic drama of the conflict between the Nationalists and Communists post WW2 in China and subsequent escape to Taiwan. The good points. The story is engrossing. It doesn't try to cram too many characters in like some other epic Chinese historical dramas. There are several distinct stories that that involve the viewer. The production values are high and cinematography is good.
Zhang Ziyi as the nurse acts convincingly. The movie shows the senseless tragedy in fighting a civil war just after WW2. The bad points The battle scenes are way too exaggerated and this hurts the story. The explosions and fireballs are just too Tarantino huge for the s.
The romances are a too coy and cutesy and the some of the romantic dialog is painfully bad that it's comical. Zhang Ziyi and Takeshi Kaneshiro act well enough but some of the other acting is below par. Huang Xiao Ming Song is too preening that it is comical especially with the aviator sunglasses.
Song Hye Kyo has this wistful look that belongs in Korean soap operas. The subtitles are small and in white so they can't be clearly read sometimes. Overall it's worth a watch for the epic sweep that covers a tumultuous time in Chinese history not often shown on film. Have to wait till next year for the conclusion and ship sinking.

Almost twenty years after James Cameron's Titanic broke cineplexes with its combination of blockbuster spectacle and heartrending emotion, John Woo is hoping to do the same with The Crossing. Based on the real- life sinking of a Taiwan-bound steamer that claimed 1, lives approximately the same number lost aboard the RMS Titanic , Woo's latest epic boasts three times the romance and, one would think, three times the heartbreak and drama.
