Your usual over-the-top blockbuster disaster of a formulaic disaster movie.

Audience Reviews for The Cassandra Crossing

One of my more favourite disaster films of the 70's as there is so much more going on than just a runaway train. The train crash at the end is a bit harsh though.

Does pass the time but cant really believe I watched this this afternoon. In the end it all seemed a bit pointless...

More to follow..
