I just saw McQ for the first time in a while and I still don't understand where all the harsh criticism comes from. Was John Wayne such an incredible actor that if he comes out with an ok effort it's looked at as crap? I'll admit this movie was not an academy award winner, but it really was quite enjoyable. I liked seeing Wayne in something different. He actually did a decent job as the tough cop who went up against drugs and corruption. In contrast to reviews I've read I really don't see as much sameness to some other movies of the time e.g. "Dirty Harry." It dealt with its own issues and had a fine supporting cast. As far as actioners go I think this one holds its own and turns out to be a pretty fun "Duker."
