This fizzled brain-storm from New World, Roger Corman's production company looks like a cinch for the first supplement to "The 50 Worst Films of All Time." Full Review
Washington Post

Rating: 4/10 -- A bad-luck project that saw director Mark Robson and co-star Robert Shaw die during production in 1978. The final result is a choppy all-star thriller that's obviously a truncated 88-minute salvage job.

Description by OLDIES.com:

U.S. undercover agent Harry Wargrave has a straightforward assignment: escort a Soviet defector on Europe's Milan-to-Rotterdam train, then cross the Atlantic and deliver his charge to Washington like a package. Easier said than done. Commandos are out to stop Harry - and a new weapon may be deployed in this patriot game: a devastating avalanche.

Veteran director Mark Robson mans the controls and a first-class cast powers the excitement of this thriller that barrels through scenic locations and constant danger. Robert Shaw (the Jaws star's final film) is the calculating, freedom-bound Marenkov. Academy Award-winner Lee Marvin plays dutiful, cynical Wargrave. And Linda Evans, Maximilian Schell, Horst Buchholz, Joe Namath and Mike Connors all earn their cloak-and-dagger badges as the story bullets from streets to iron rails to the sea. All aboard the Avalanche Express!

Product Description:

Robert Shaw's last film in which he plays a Soviet defector. Marvin is an American agent determined to get him safely delivered across the Milan to Rotterdam railway. But the Soviets will do anything to stop him - including start an avalanche.
