The Cassandra Crossing is an all-star disaster spectacular telling of the terrifying odyssey of 1000 doomed passengers trapped aboard a plague-infested train. A terrorist infected with a deadly virus boards the Stockholm to Geneva Express and exposes all aboard to the disease. Colonel Mackenzie (Burt Lancaster) is called in to handle the situation and finds Dr. Chamberlain (Richard Harris) who is on board the train. Mackenzie decides to re-route the train to the Cassandra Crossing where it will plunge into oblivion. But passengers miraculously begin to recover and Chamberlain must race against time to disconnect the cars.

The cinematography was beautiful and the plot was very intriguing but all throughout the thrill and suspense is knocked over by the dullness and slow acting. Definitely could've been much better if done by the right director.

Frances H (kr) wrote: Almodovar once again takes strange personal relationships strained to the limit and sheds light on the needs of the human soul. He manipulates our emotions with a deft hand, so that we feel great sympathy for a character who, if we had been acquainted with just the barebones description of what he did, might be accounted dangerous stalker. Is his love and caring enough to make his deeds any less a crime? No, but we wish that he could have been able to win his Alicia, never the less. And, of course, there is the sympathy we feel for Marco, who seems fated to be dumped by the women he loves. That these two lonely men should bond over their devotion to comatose loved ones is also fated A masterful film.
