Watch McQ - Alternative Versions.
By the early seventies the western genre was in severe decline, and
with the exception of Clint Eastwood the only other bankable actor
within the genre who could return a sure fire hit was John Wayne.
However having made a string or westerns in succession John Wayne was
eager to broaden his horizons and undertake a new project, the project
was to be a contemporary detective drama titled 'McQ'.
McQ is set in Seattle and follows Lon McQ (Duke) in his pursuit of the
gangsters whom murdered his friend and colleague Stan Boyle. As the
quest intensifies McQ uncovers the motive behind his friends killing

While the movie was slammed by critics and some anti Wayne elements its
impossible to deny that John Wayne is well cast in this movie as a
tough cop who is something of an outsider in a world of changing
values. The Duke gives a fine performance with some good supporting

high-speed car chases and an exciting climatic shootout. One notable if
somewhat improbable action scene involves two lorries playing a
large-scale version of dodgems with McQ's car that would have been very
akin to a scene from a James Bond movie.
The movie delves into several interesting areas including corruption,
family breakdowns and the shadowy underworld of drugs, one brilliantly
directed and acted scene involves McQ exchanging drugs for vital
information about an imminent drugs heist, this scene illustrates just
how complex the drug underworld actually is and the chemistry between
McQ and Myra is very evident.
The overall tone of the movie is notably grim and gritty and while the
movie would have benefited from a larger budget, tighter direction and
greater character development, nevertheless McQ was an undeniable hit
at the box office and is a worthy entry into John Wayne's impressive
