5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Entertaining!, 23 Mar. 2008
This review is from: Brannigan [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
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.

The film simply oozes charm and sheer likeability. It's a real feel-good movie. The Duke is clearly having a ball, and makes sure we do too.
