(1976) Breakheart Pass
Unusual blend of action and mystery but captivating nonetheless which takes place on a train based on the novel by Alister MacLean starring Charles Bronson as Deakin investigating a death in a train. There's basically one unbelievable train stunt that has to be seen to be believed and Bronson's charm is still intact. Also starring is his frequent female co-star and wife Jill Ireland, Ben Johnson, Richard Crenna and Charles Durning.
3 and a 1/2 out of 4
Here Charles Bronson plays a mysterious man held captive on board a train rolling through the bleak winter wilderness towards Breakheart Pass. Accused of a crime, all is not as it seems for Bronson's character Deacon, is he really a criminal or an undercover agent? With gun runners, government agents, deceitful officials and Indians, this action thriller really thrills and one could do worse than watch this on a rainy afternoon.
