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>

Why do Americans always treat the UK like we live in the past?
29 November 2004 | by (London England) – See all my reviews

This film was on TV today, and being a big McCloud fan from the 70's, I thought I'd watch is. As a McCloud film, I enjoyed it, but as a Londoner and a Brit, I cringed, as this film followed the stereotype of London and England I have seen in so many films. For the benefit of everyone, please note that London is not split into tourist spots and dingy East end pubs, we no longer have fog (OK, that wasn't in this film but I saw that in a recent Murder She Wrote), and the countryside is not littered with posh country mansions (as depicted in this and MSW). Most importantly, apart from a few lines dedicated as tourist attractions, steam trains have not run on our railways since the 60's.

OK, I realize I'm too late for the programmes mentioned as they were made in the late 80's, but even then they should have known better - I appreciate London and England being put on the cinematic map, but I would enjoy them more if they were more realistic, and I just hope the lesson has been learnt.
