One of the best "Western" movies ever
9 March 1999 | by (Västerås, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This movie is a real classic. The movie takes its place on a train on its way to Fort Humboldt, and Charles Bronson acts as a man accused of many ill-doings. Suddenly people starts disappearing and the thrill of the movie has begun. The movie is excellently made and one can never figure out the ending. Personally I think that this is one of Charles Bronson's greatest movies and his co-actors also does a very fine job. This is also one of the best movies made out of Alistair Maclean's books - even if it doesn't completly follow the book.
