A bad-luck project that saw director Mark Robson and co-star Robert Shaw die during production in 1978. The final result is a choppy all-star thriller that's obviously a truncated 88-minute salvage job.

Audience Reviews for Avalanche Express

An unfortunate last film for great director Mark Robson and indeed actor Robert Shaw. I like a good cold war drama, and Avalanche Express had all the right ingredients, they just weren't necessarily added in the correct order. It gets a little bit confusing somewhere in the middle, just after the climax of the film that happens about an hour too early. I think I enjoyed the parts I did for all the wrong reasons but then this was one of those films that came just as audiences where bored of this style of film and were looking at a different genres and a different way of film making. It's not quite a last of the greats but it does represent a sad end to a much loved type of film.
