Ahh, this movie is just great. Just over two hours of non-stop action, an all-star cast, nice European scenery and brilliantly photographed train footage. In this sometimes cheesy buy wholly entertaining movie, terrorists attempt to blow up the International Health Organisation in Geneva. The attempt fails, oen is shot and two are accidentally infected with a germ warfare virus. One of them later dies in hospital, the other escapes and boards a train bound for Stockholm. When the authorities learn of the threat to Europe as the train gathers speed, it is up to Colonel Mackenzie(well acted by Burt Lancaster) to prevent a disastrous epidemic. As no country will let passengers off, he reroutes the train to Poland and the Cassandra Crossing bridge, unused since 1948. On board the train, a beautiful writer(Sophia Loren) and a brilliant brain surgeon(Richard Harris) must fight the plague - and stop the train before it means certain death for everyone. And the pace never slackens, after an explosive opening until the nail-biting and spectacular climax, this movie bombs along with a real sense of urgency, with pulsating action and a great musical score by Jerry Goldsmith. Don't miss it!
