Storyline

Ex-Marshal McCloud now is senator of New Mexico, fighting for a new environment law. His enemy is Maitland, unscrupulous owner of Chemtel, the world's most important chemical manufacturer. Shortly after McCloud gives an inspiring speech, he barely escapes an bomb in his car and a shooting in a restaurant. When he learns that his niece, medical researcher for Chemtel, was killed, he begins to suspect that the attempts on his life were not made by Arabian terrorists, but by Maitland. He pays him a visit in Britain and starts to research on his own. Written by Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>

Famed policeman from Tulse, NM, returns from past TV series to delight old faces and let us wallow in nostalgia...
13 June 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"McCloud" used to be one of my favourite series on TV, the heartwarming bumblings of the "seconded" New Mexico innocent abroad, or rather, in the New York jungle, somehow he always seem to come out on the winning side and delights us with the folksy turns of country people. The trio of McCloud, Chief Clifford and Joe Broadhurst as sidekick form the same buddy ensemble as, say Captain Kirk, Spock and the Doc in another series. The net effect is that they eventually worm themselves into our hearts and follow their every adventure and interchange with great interest.

This film, the return of McCloud, should have, I suspect, been quietly shelved or distributed only among fans and devotees of the series as it is I am afraid very poor; the plot is rudimentary, the parts sketchy and incomplete, and you have to squirm at times, it is so embarrassing. But all is forgiven, when you see them together, even Joe Broadhurst, being used as a sidekick once again,(he calls Clifford "Chief" even though he is now Commissioner in New York and his underling asks him about it - a delightful instance!) And the incapacitated Clifford asking McCloud to leave him to his fate - ("And that's an order!")

So, in spite of all the weaknesses, I enjoyed it very much and added the taped-from-TV copy to my McCloud collection!
