It's a good looking and stylish film, but that isn't enough to compensate for the absence of anyone to root for: everyone here is a self-centred bastard callously using everyone and anyone else. Unfortunately, McCain, played with a typical bad-taste-in-his-mouth sneer and smoke-in-his-eyes half-squint by Cassavettes, simply isn't an interesting enough bastard to overcome his callous indifference to violence - he's the kind of man who'll smile at a hatcheck girl while planting a diversionary bomb that could kill her and who registers no emotion when those supposedly closest to him are killed until the unconvincing ending. Like all the characters, he exists in a world outside the law and morality, where it's the mob who have their own covert police force and hold their own trials and executions: the sole representative of the forces of law and order is a Vegas sheriff who is easily dissuaded from investigating a series of bombings and leave it to the gangsters to sort out among themselves.Read more ›
What a fantastic find. Blue Underground is fastly becomming my fav studio for Blu-rays. I have been watching films for a long time, but still can find hidden gems like Giuliano Montaldo's: Machine Gun McCain thanks to them.
If you want the film's synopsis, please read Amazon's, cause it hits the mark. Be warned, though, this film comes with a tonne of style, an amazing score (Ennio Morricone!!!) and a BIG punch. Hank McCain is the main character played by John Cassavetes who is just brillient. Nobody F___s with McCain!
The Blu-ray itself is very high quality with great picture and sound (DTS HD mono) for a movie that is 41 years old. Be warned, there is some excess grain in the wide open shots (not so many), but for the most the picture is clear and colourful. Extras are tight with just the 23 min Interview with Director Giuliano Montaldo and 2 trailers.
The movie is pretty good if you like that type of thing. I must warn some viewers that Britt Ekland is not treated the way any woman deserves. The sex scene is creepy because of this, but I don't want to give away any more of the movie. This is a must have for any Britt Ekland fan.
