5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT MOVIE!!
They seriously need to put this on DVD!
The Ultimate Warrior is a blast! YUL ROCKS!

4-0 out of 5 stars Yul Brynner as a super-samurai post-apocalpytic hero
"The Ultimate Warrior" is a post-Holocaust action film that came out in 1975 after "The Omega Man," but just before the genre became popular with "Mad Max" and "Escape From New York." The film is set in 2012 in a New York City that was decimated by a biological plague a couple of decades earlier that has created a world in which nothing grows. Now in the decaying city Baron (Max Von Sydow), leads a group that has barricaded a street against a rival gang of thugs, run by Carrot (William Smith). Wanting his pregnant daughter, Melinda (Joanna Miles), to have a better future, Baron hires Carson (Yul Brynner), a super-Samurai, who has been standing outside the public library waiting for somebody to make an offer for his services. Baron has heard of a mythical island off of the coast of North Carolina and wants to relocate his band there. Of course, this means fighting their way out of what is left of the Big Apple. Melinda's husband, Cal (Richard Kelton) is a scientist who knows the secret of growing plants from seeds, so humanity might have a chance after all.

Director/writer Robert Clouse is therefore offering up the first combination Science Fiction/Kung Fu film, which is not surprising since he directed Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon." From that perspective the film offers up the tradition two warring sides with champions that face off to settle the issue. The script is actually halfway decent, although surprisingly the action sequences are the weakest part of the film until the climatic battle between Carson and Carrot. However, the opening scene does a nice job of establishing the world in which this film takes place. The film hinges on Brynner's performance, which is actually fairly complex because we are not completely sure that Carson is a cynical anti-hero; in fact, we suspect he might be the only truly human character in the film. "The Ultimate Warrior" is no where near being the ultimate example of the post-apocalyptic action film, but it is a solid, unpretentious little B-movie. Plus, it has Yul Brynner.

5-0 out of 5 stars Baldly the Last of it's Kind......
The Ultimate Warrior baldly set precident for other films of similar genres. I had read about this film a while back and had been waiting for a chance to view it. The Ultimate Warrior is far from perfect but brings forth a lot fun that todays watered down made for video flops can't seem to do. This movie seems like a combo of Logans Run, Man Max, and Kung Fu. Wow, where to begin? I personally like Yul Brynner's character, it makes me remember when movies with masculine heros existed. Bynner doesn't play a pretty boy, he is a bald tough guy who has a job to do. I like the independance of the hero character, he doesn't rely on a affirmitive action based sidekick or allow himself to be overtaken by feelings towards [beautiful] woman.... A thinking man of the sorts who smokes cigars and does what is right even if it means chopping his own hand off. I'm not going to ruin the plot of this gem for you, just add it to your collection and pray they don't try making a remake of this post appocalptic rarety.

3-0 out of 5 stars Brynner is good but no at his best.
To appreciate this film I believe you have to consider the time it was released. During the mid 1970's the cold war was looming over the U.S. and somehow a film like this seemed almost possible. Viewing it now in the year 2000 viewers will realize they are living in what this film indicates will be a post nuclear war environment. Obviously the events in this movie never materialized, thank heavens. Cadillac's are still being produced. Although unlike the mid 70' when people purchased then they are now leased.

This film is good because for those of us who lived with the fear of nuclear war it reminds of us of how we as a nation worried about some things other than how long this bull run in the stock market will last.

Yul Brynner was a little old to be running around with his shirt off. This film was made about 20 years after THE TEN COMMANDMENTS but for some reason the producers must still think Brynner's body will get the women viewers attention. Not so.

3-0 out of 5 stars Post-apocalyptic movie isn┬┐t bad.
It's been quite a while since I've seen this film, but surprisingly I remember it pretty well. I'm a fan of this genre, so this film, along Costner's work and one of Gibson's "Mad Max" stories, I do enjoy (at certain times). Even Patrick Swayze's "Steel Dawn" has many things that I liked.

While none of these films are 5-star material, they do well to fill in the blank/bland spots in ones' day or evening. Surprisingly, "The Ultimate Warrior" ended up being pretty darn good (related to others of the genre).

If you're hunting and pecking to find a film that you haven't seen (and like this genre), try it out. I certainly won't guarantee that you'll like it, but heck, two bucks for a rental won't kill ya. Between 1 and 10, I give "The Ultimate Warrior" a solid 6 (a rating within the genre--I'd be hard pressed giving anything more than a marginal 5 otherwise). ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars A pretty good 70's cop flick.
John Wayne tries to be Dirty Harry, even down to a "signature gun", in this case the Ingram MAC-10 machine pistol.For a Wayne movie, its very hard on "the System", showing corrupt cops and cops who just don't give a damn about justice. Good performance by Eddie Albert as a PO'd police captain, half the time you think his head is going to explode off his shoulders!Fantastic stuntwork at the end, making the slow spots worth the effort.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the Duke's last, one of the Duke's best!!!
Sure Clint Eastwood's Dirty Harry series is in the fore-front of all cop movies. But McQ is right up there. Highly underrated, it has a great plot (not necessarily original, but) and the action is well paced. It has that darkened 70's feel to it, which works very effectively. John Wayne made a mistake turning down the Dirty Harry bit, but he shows what might have been in this movie. McQ and Dirty Harry and Bullitt are all great movies. If you haven't seen all of them, then what are you waiting for?

5-0 out of 5 stars ROGUE WAYNE
THIS WAS THE DUKE'S EFFORT AT PLAYING THE ROGUE COP IN THE WAKE OF THE 'BULLIT' AND 'DIRTY HARRY' CRAZE.
WAYNE TURNS IN A TRUE TO FORM PERFORMANCE. YOU COULD ALWAYS COUNT ON HIM TO MAKE A SATISFYING FILM AND TO RATE ANY WAYNE MOVIE AT LESS THAN FIVE STARS WOULD BE SACRELIDGE.
HE TRADES HIS SADDLE AND SIXGUN FOR A BADGE AND A MAC-10.
LON MCQ IS A SEASONED DETECTIVE WHO TIRES OF THE POLITICAL RED TAPE AND RESIGNS TO PURSUE HIS PARTNERS MURDER AS A P.I.
HE SLOWLY FINDS OUT THAT HIS TRUSTED FRIEND WAS DIRTY
ALONG WITH SOME OTHER BROTHERS IN BLUE. BUT THE DUKE ALWAYS FINISHES WHAT OTHERS START AND HE PLAYS IT OUT TO THE END.
EDDIE ALBERT TURNS IN A SUPRISINGLY GOOD SUPPORTING PERFORMANCE AND SEE IF YOU CAN SPOT THE ACTOR THAT WAS DESTINED TO BECOME FAMOUS AS TOM SELLECKS SIDEKICK ON T.V.
MCQ GETS A NEW PARTNER IN A TEXAS MADE MAC-10 SUBMACHINE GUN AND WREAKS HAVOC ON THE BAD GUYS WITH IT.
CRITICS HAVE ALWAYS ACCUSED WAYNE OF JUST PLAYING HIMSELF AND NOT REALLY ACTING. BESIDES BEING A GREAT ACTOR, WAYNE PLAYING HIMSELF IS EXACTLY WHAT THE PUBLIC WANTED ANYWAY, SO WHERES THE SIN?

MCQ IS A SIMPLE SOLID FILM STARRING A LEGEND AND DIRECTED BY ANOTHER. IT CERTINELY BELONGS IN ANY 'DUKE' VIDEO COLLECTION.

5-0 out of 5 stars McQ. John Wayne
Loved the movie, It's a little different to see the Duke in civilian atire as a investigator on the hunt for the people who took out not only cops but a good freind as well . One of the highlights for me was seeing the early 70's Trans Am that the Duke was driving ripping up the streets of Seattle, great looking car for the era. Another thing that I noticed was no profane language in the movie, quite refreshing and enjoyable for anyone to watch who likes action movies and the Duke.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
Not Bad, Police drama starring John Wayne and Eddie Albert in a story of tough cops trying to stop the drug trade. Wayne's performance is okay, but Clint Eastwood made these type of movies much better. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Bottom of the Barrel
This dreadful mess sports a second-rate cast slogging its way through a third-rate script, under the direction of stale sitcom director Hy Averback. It's a waste of money, film, and time but for those who enjoy a sophomoric plot and smarmy, untalented actors, it's a classic.

5-0 out of 5 stars a real charmer
I saw this movie when I was probably a preteen and it made quite an impression on me. It's all about adultery and what happens when people get bored in their marriages. Cybil Sheperd's husband starts having an affair, she finds out and starts having fantasies about every man she meets and whether or not she should be messing around too. It's very 70's but I found it to be very funny and Cybil looks great in it. It has a great supporting cast and the guy who plays the husband is gorgeous. I still remember the theme song - "Nothing Stays the Same." I highly recommend this movie to people who want to see a good, lighthearted comedy. ... Read more
