Crichton's films drag in dialog bouts, but triumph when action takes over.
The characters stay largely undeveloped, while -- despite superficially peculiar features -- the robbery is stripped of the ingenious exposition of the novel.
he climactic heist of the gold, with Mr. Connery climbing atop the moving railroad cars, ducking under bridges just before a possible decapitation, is marvelous action footage that manages to be very funny as it takes your breath away.
Connery is one of the best light comedians in the movies, and has been ever since those long-ago days when he was James Bond.
The Great Train Robbery is elegant and stately. But it is a slow-moving story, when what we really want from a period thriller is a feeling for the excitement generated during the actual events.
The Great Train Robbery does, much like the 1975 source material, tend to get bogged down in the small details regarding the titular heist...
Crichton is after a giggly quality as if it's being told as a pub yarn, soaked in exaggeration and acute trickery to defeat impossible hurdles, while never far from redoubtable moral lesson.
An entertaining thriller that stumbles occasionally on overlong dialogue sequences.
Lumbers along at a dull pace.
Imbued with the spirit of the '60s and '70s counterculture.
Smooth crime caper flick with Connery .
The Great Train Robbery offers a peep into Victorian society with its strange sports, public hangings and high society rituals.
Sean Connery and Donald Sutherland star in this adventure/heist bit, spiced with witty dialogue and lively action scenes. Michael Crichton, of Jurassic Park fame, helms this, one of his earlier forays, and does quite well. Worthy of your time.
Oh, so boring... Sure there's a good cast, but they're not even doing anything exciting anyway.
Not the most intriguiging of robbery/hiest movies, but clever all the same. It plodded along slowly but at an entertaining pace, interesting to see a robbery/hiest for it's the period it covered and with a little humour injected in to it and a likeable performance by Sean Connery, it all turned into a watchable kind of film.
Enjoyable period heist movie that's like a victorian version of The Italian Job. A likeable cast of british stalwarts makes it all the more enjoyable.
