NYPD detectives Shepard and Powell are working on a bizarre case of a ritualistic Aztec murder. Meanwhile, something big is attacking people of New York and only greedy small time crook Jimmy Quinn knows where its lair is.
The title 'Q' is short for Quetzlcoatl, the Aztec god who was half reptile and half bird.
You know it could take us weeks to find where this thing is holed up. I mean it could be in the woods. Away from the city someplace, could be over in Jersey some place. My God with a wingspan like you're talking about here, that thing could fly ...
When Quinn runs away from the robbery, the number of people in the streets around him change frequently between shots. This is most noticeable just after he loses the bag containing the loot.
The original theatrical print, as well as the HBO and Cinemax airing, and the syndicated TV print, at the finale of Q, with the shot of the new egg hatching and the camera zooming inside to black, instead of cutting to the credits, a title card stating that Michael Moriarty's character sued the city and got $1 million tax-free , yet all video and DVD of this film is missing this.
