Night Owl

The Train

Viewed: 17 July 2011
Directed by: John Frankenheimer
Listed in: Movies, Netflix

A fantastic adventure, with epic sensibilities and craft. It's filmed to impressive with long continuous shots over train yards full of assembling soldiers, scurrying railway workers and steaming locomotives, whole railyards blowing up, engines smashing into each other. Chock full of railway action. It starts to get a little cockamamie in the last half. And Burt Lancaster is wholly unconvincing as a Frenchman. But is it a great action film.
