Tough Irish-American Chicago cop Brannigan (John Wayne) is sent to London on the trail of a gangster. He is mystified by local customs, and finds English police procedure rather strange. With Richard Attenborough, Judy Geeson and Mel Ferrer.

I had been waiting to get my hands on a copy of BRANNIGAN for a long time, and I have to admit It was worth the wait. The plot of the film has been outlined in previous reviews so I'll skip that. BRANNIGAN was made the year after Big John made McQ, (also great) so I assumed it would simply be a reworking, so I was pleasantly suprised. BRANNIGAN is much easier viewing than McQ because there aren't as many twist to the plot, this film is simpler and has the action I felt McQ lacked.
BRANNIGAN succeeds because of the balance of humour and drama. John Wayne is a complete fish out of water in London, so his interaction with the people is very funny. Even more so is his relationship to the head of Scotland Yard played by Sir Richard. His straight-laced police man simply does not approve of John's maverick methods. The film also benefits from John Vernon's villain and Judy Geeson's charm. I would recommend this film to John Wayne fans or any one who likes cop thrillers.

A very under valued John Wayne classic. The Duke hits London town to investigate a crime in front of various London landmarks and is aided by an A-Z of British acting talent. Notable scenes include the inevitable car chase and jump over Tower Bridge and of course a Cockney pub brawl with the Duke delivering some choice haymakers. Get off your horse, drink your milk and check this film out.

An entertaining Police thriller in which John Wayne plays Chicago policeman Brannigan, sent to London to extradite a mob boss. Things go wrong when the villain is kidnapped, forcing Brannigan and his Scotland Yard colleagues to go searching through London. Added to which is a hitman hired to bump Brannigan off.

This has no great pretensions to being a classic or thought provoking film. It provides an interesting plot and keeps it ticking over nicely with regular well paced action sequences and a decent sprinkling of humour. John Wayne ambles his way through with his usual easy going charm, and Richard Attenborough has fun as the very British Police Commander Brannigan has to work with in London. The humour comes largely from the American in England angle, with some misunderstandings and clashes over the English and American way of doing things. It's a background thing though, and doesn't interfere with the main story.

With a host of well known British faces (James Booth as an effective villain, Tony Robinson and Brian Glover in typically humorous roles, Brian Dennen and Del Henney) filling out supporting roles, imaginative use of seventies London and some nice Jaguars this sometimes feels a little like the Sweeney with John Wayne as a guest star. Which is no bad thing!

In short an entertaining film that will help while away a few hours.

This 2004 release from MGM has the original widescreen format and a mono soundtrack. There are some blips and scratches on the film, but in the main it is a decent transfer. The soundtrack is in similarly good condition. A decent budget release.

This for me was surprising because I'm not generally a John Wayne fan (don't like westerns) but this was really good, set in London and shows off a lot of landmarks everyone will recognize, is well written, and a good film for anyone who likes cops-being-Sherlock Holmesish-tracking down a internainal criminal-solving crimes movies.

It's not thought provoking and it's not a masterpeice but then I think we have to bear in mind it wasn't meant to be. If you take it as "Dirty Harry" transfered to London with John Wayne as the lead then this ain't too bad. The plot is good as are the performances. Seventies UK Fords are much in evidence if cars are your thing as are a couple of ratty Jaguars (an E-Type and an S-type) just as any self respecting crook would drive in the era. The car chase is exciting and some of the camera effects are nicely done plus you get a good view of mid seventies London and all the tourist sites plus shots of a London "character" that has long since disappeared never to return. Think "The Sweeny" in places. I bought in for under a fiver and wasn't disappointed. If the TV is rubbish order a pizza and watch this to while away a couple of hours.

Format: DVD
This 1975 film starring John Wayne as an american tough cop chasing a dangerous criminal in England owes a little to much to the Clint Eastwood Dirty Harry films of the 70ths!
Although Wayne goes along with is classic screen persona and Sir Richard Athenborough gives a solid performance in a suporting role, Wayne is too old to be convincing in this film, specially working with a young actress who plays her brithish escort cop and who develops a crush for the 60 year old man!
Competent in all departments...except for the fact that it should have been played by a younger actor...the film seemed to point the obvious end of Wayne's carrer....fortunatly he said farewell with the classic "The Shottist"!
The dvd presents the film in is original aspect ratio of 2:35 and a clear mono sound, plus a trailer.
For John Wayne fans only!

I just love this film - it is not a great film but a good Sunday afternoon film. It is not the Dukes best film by any imagination - and he is too old for the role he plays, we've seen the same plot before and done better but give it a go with an open mind.
