too much of bad camera shots and editing
26 September 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Let me first say that IMDb stated this episode clocking in at 47 minutes but that's a big fault because it clocks in at 91 minutes. So another full feature of the famous McCloud series.

It did open my eyes for a few reasons. First of all the way that they used the camera was really bad. Clearly that they didn't had a steady cam back then to use. It's full of shaky camera shots and it's awful to watch sometimes. Even the way they edited the inserts was rather rare to see. So on part of camera and editing it is badly done. But not only that, they almost never used extra lighting for the darker parts or the night shots outside in New York.

The other thing that made fall my mouth open were the shots in a airplane. McCloud has to take an airplane to go to Paris but just look closely inside that plane. No seatbelts. the hand luggage is unsafe above the heads. There are even round tables with seats available on board. Go figure that out.

But as the story goes with McCloud, he's the playboy again with his southern accent. I didn't like this feature at all because the camera is too shaky at times that it really gets annoying. Even the story is a bit simple and the shoot outs were laughable too. The only part that was funny is when McCloud tries to talk French in Paris.

Maybe IMDb was right, they should have made it a 47 minute episode. That would have been nicer.
