Audience Reviews for The Cassandra Crossing

...from back in the 70's when disaster movies were all the rage.

Almost classic 1970's disaster movie. The proverbial all-star cast takes on a train plagued (get it?) by a virus run amok. It is up to Richard Harris, Sophia Loren and company to outwit those who would run the train off a rickety bridge to kill off the passengers and the virus. Lots of well-staged action, and a pivotal score by Jerry Goldsmith that winds the film up and lets it go!

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..
