Crossfire doesn’t ignore any inconvenient or uncomfortable truths, and approaches these questions from all angles. With fearless and relentless investigation of all the issues surrounding modern day policing, this movie aims to make you question everything you’ve heard about modern America.

Now,all these years later, at a time when contemporary movies are dominated by a ridiculous over abundance of foul language, bare breasts, crummy acting and deafening soundtracks, it's refreshing to get back to the basics of quality film making with a viewing treat like "Crossfire".
