Set in early 1970’s Seattle, McQ tells the story of a police detective out for justice (or revenge) for the killing of his partner. Little does he know that his partner was part of a crime ring. As events unfold we get to see some great old cars, clothes, inappropriate and sexists remarks, and of course Seattle as it looked 40 years ago. Being from Seattle, Bob and I are particularly impressed with knowing the filming locations for most of the shots. Directed by John Sturges and starring John Wayne, Eddie Albert, Diana Muldaur, and many others, it’s a well acted but at times heavy handed and slowly plotted film. There are some great scenes and some scenes that literally put me to sleep! If you’re into old 1970’s cars and fashions or you like the movies of John Sturges, John Wayne or the other actors then give it a watch. Otherwise, you might want to skip this one.
