Rating of
1.5/4 

WWII adventure that sees Burt Lancaster in typically rough and tumble style attempting to stop a nazi colonel from stealing the art treasures of Paris. The film would've worked better if Frankenheimer had shown as much interest in the characters (and the war for that matter) as he did in the locomotives, but there are a couple of impressive set pieces involving a 3 train wreck and railyard aerial bombardment. On the whole, more one for steam enthusiasts than the rest of us, but it is worth persevering with for the powerful final scenes in which the obsessive colonel must admit defeat.

Burt Lancaster stars in this John Frankenheimer film that sets the standard for today's action films. Lean on dialogue but heavy on action, Lancaster leads a troupe of American and French freedom fighters on a mission to stop... a train. Is it carrying explosives? Prisoners? War secrets? Nope -- just hundreds of the most famous works of art that the Nazis had commandeered from the French museums they'd raided. As Lancaster's men live and die around him, the film calls into question the ultimate value of art -- and why it matters.
