John Woo’s epic historical saga about the ill-fated Taiping steamer comes to an end in The Crossing Part 2. Picking up where The Crossing Part 1 left off, we rejoin the three pairs of lovers whose fates are inexorably tied to the Taiping, and thus, each other. Military doctor Yan Zenkun remains separated from the Japanese woman he loves due to shifts in politics. Signal corps soldier Tong Daqing and lower-class illiterate woman Yu Zhen have fallen for one another, but life seems to have a way of keeping them apart. The wife of General Lei Yifang, meanwhile, continues to wait for him in Taiwan, despite not knowing whether he’s dead or alive.
