Excellent Suspense Drama,

Unforgettable Suspense, drama which opens with a terrifying Scene Of a derailment of a roller-coaster which is no accident, It's the work of an unstable extremist(Timothy Bottoms),who is an electronics expert, His sole purpose is to Blackmail $1 million from a group of amusement park owners.

George Segal, plays Harry Caulder, a likable safety inspector Who becomes Involved in the increasingly Tense, attempts to track down The saboteur,Richard Widmark plays a tough federal agent on the case, There is an extended cameo of sorts, by Henry Fonda Who plays Segals Boss, Roller-coaster has an excellent script by Richard Levinson &William Link. who have written episodes of Colombo,

Roller-coaster is a film first, Iam sure it was the first film to Feature a lot of early Steadicam work which admirably works well in the the opening and climax,

It also marks the debut Of Helen Hunt,A young Steve Guttenburg has a walk on part (Check out his afro! From its terrifying opening, to the tension filled finale Roller-coaster 'will have you on the edge of your seat!

A white knuckle winner.

Roller-coaster is not a disaster movie. Do not cheapen it by labelling it with this tag. It is a suspense thriller. A lunatic is stalking Americas theme parks and sabotaging the coasters. Cue, Harry Calder(George Segal), a burned out safety inspector who is designated to track the maniac.A tense game of cat and mouse follows with the psycho using Harry as his confidant, calling him regularly, with an almost begrudging respect. This nut is so insane, he actually likes Harry!Timothy Bottoms is excellent, giving a super-creepy performance as the saboteur.Roller-coaster boasts great performances, superb photography and some classic dialogue exchanges. And hey, you've got Richard Widmark AND Henry Fonda thrown in there too! Roller-coaster - a seminal 70's thriller.

A very entertaining ride.

I read a review of this movie indicating that Seagal's acting "almost saved it." I would go farther and say that this movie is enjoyable primarily because of the acting. Segal's Harry Calder is very good and properly understated -- you get the impression of a nice guy with little ambition or tact. Widmark is also good as the know it all cop. However, Bottoms' blackmailer is even better! He plays the young man with the cold, calculating efficiency of the sociopath. Very understated, which is a sign of good acting. I'm reminded of a Jack Lemmon quote describing his early years in film when the director kept telling him "a little less." Bottoms give us the bare minimum, which is perfect for this character. The script is also good, taking what could be an action-only cliché and turning it into a suspenseful "how is he going to do it." Anyone who is looking for high drama or Hitchcock is going to be disappointed. But if you are looking to be entertained then it is a very enjoyable ride.
