Ratings & Reviews

  1. FISCHER's rating of the film Avalanche Express

    Manichéisme oblige, les bons Yankees contre les méchants Russkofs. L'idyllique paradis de l'Ouest face à l'enfer infâme de l'Est. Hormis ces pesantes considérations, l'action est tout de même spectaculairement présente...

  2. ExperimentoFilm's rating of the film Avalanche Express

    An amusingly appalling Cold War action thriller whose silliness, considering the talents involved, must have at least partly resulted from the untimely deaths of director/producer Mark Robson and star Robert Shaw.

  3. Sunrise's rating of the film Avalanche Express

    When Mike Conners welcomes Marvin's Wargrave, he extends his hand. Instead of the expected handshake, Wargrave presents stolen data. This initiates an interesting theme, the avalanche of cold-war creates casualties of denied sybiotic agendas. People 'working the same circuit,' do so without any possible sympathy, willing to sacrifice another's agenda. Death is not physical, but of political and social isolation.

  4. Coheed 2.5's rating of the film Avalanche Express

    Some may find this to be tedious, but to my delight I loved this film. Stripped of all the tedious plot strands that get added to films and cause them to be dragged down, this is a streamlined suspense movie which, if you peel off the Cold War politics, is spy drama mixed with a tale of human determination in extreme circumstances. Also look out for David Hess in a small role.
