The Cassandra Crossing

  • Film

Time Out says

Dire thriller about the dangers of bacteriological research, with an international rag-bag of stars mouthing dialogue of supreme banality as an intercontinental express is summarily rerouted to a former concentration camp after passengers are exposed to a deadly pneumonic plague virus as a result of an abortive terrorist raid on the International Health Organisation in Geneva. Naturally a bridge en route is crumbling, and just to add a turn of the screw to the histrionics, one of the passengers happens to be an ex-inmate of the concentration camp. Unbelievable tosh.
