Critic Reviews for Brannigan
It's a Western, really, but then most cop movies are, these days. I guess it's cheaper to film in a city.
There's too much of an emphasis on lengthy chases and stakeouts when what we really want to see are more interactions between Wayne and his co-stars.
All by itself, the jazzy theme by Dominic Frontiere makes the film worth watching.
It's hard to imagine a scenario more ill-fitted for John Wayne than 1975 London, but there he is in all his ripened glory.
I won't say Brannigan is without laughs. Most of them in the wrong places.
Audience Reviews for Brannigan
Fun to see the Duke as a detective instead of a cowboy. But I found the script pretty bland.
Unexceptional crime thriller benefits from London location filming, a cast full of good actors and John Wayne in the lead. The main story is average but it moves at a good pace and has an enjoyable car chase thrown in. The theme music over the opening credits is classic terrible 70's junk but fortunately the rest of the supplemental soundtrack is much more in synch with the feeling of the film.
Drags a bit in spots, but it's a fun cop movie starring the Duke.
