This much forgotten film of the late eighties deserves its pathetic faith. Nothing in this lazy thriller could ever surprise anyone. A complete turkey, however, it is not. "Cross" simply is average. And dated. Not a good mix. The plot itself can best be qualified as ordinary: in order to free his wife and daughter from the malicious care of five lunatics freshly escaped from the asylum, a policeman seeks help from a professional killer. The kidnapped members also include some other relatives of the distressed cop. None of them are meant to live very long on screen anyway. Michel Sardou, a popular french singer, plays the main character without excessive mannerism but his performance remains forgettable. The only interesting character in this movie is that of the hired killer. He is played with an effective tongue-in-cheek humor by comedian Roland Giraud. Otherwise... on a rainy Monday evening it might end up mildly entertaining.
