Bear Island

(Don Sharp, 1979)
Grade A Competency Perplex, a movie designed to show off explosions and murders and snowmobile chases across majestic Northern wastelands, but it just sits there like a lump. All-star cast runs around acting furtive, there's a lot of chit chat about Commies and Nazis, and I guess the main selling point is supposed to be that jolly old Lloyd Bridges turns out to be a homicidal maniac! But in the Soviet Union they had a description of certain MOR productions as "grey cinema", and I can't think of a better way to describe this.
