Reviews

Britse thriller uit 1977 van regisseur George Pan Cosmatos, met Richard Harris, Sophia Loren, Burt Lancaster, Ava Gardner e.a. De Speelfilmencyclopedie geeft drie sterren: 'Onderhoudende rampenthriller over een sneltrein met honderd passagiers aan boord en een door pestbacillen geïnfecteerde terrorist die de gehele trein dreigt te besmetten.' Uiteindelijk wordt besloten de trein om te leiden waardoor die in volle vaart op een houten brug afstormt die dreigt in te storten. De Speelfilmencyclopedie vindt de film hier en daar overdreven sentimenteel.

About George P. Cosmatos

George Pan Cosmatos (4 January 1941 – 19 April 2005) was a Greco-Italian film director and screenwriter. Following early success in his home country with drama films such as Massacre in Rome with Richard Burton (based on the real-life Ardeatine massacre), Cosmatos retooled his career towards mainstream 'blockbuster' action and adventure films, including The Cassandra Crossing and Escape to Athena, both of which were British-Italian co-productions. After relocating to North America, he directed the horror film Of Unknown Origin. This was followed by some of his best-known work, including the action films Rambo: First Blood Part II and Cobra (both of which star Sylvester Stallone), the science-fiction horror film Leviathan, and the critically acclaimed Western Tombstone.
