The 2nd as good as the first - French Connection II review by PT

Spoiler Alert
31/07/2015

Popeye is back, sent to France as he is the only man who can identify chanier (Fernando Ray). Right from the off Popeye doesn't fit in with the French policing methods, wanting to go NewYork style. But, when in Rome......

After being forced into a junkie, a half dead Popeye is thrown outside police headquarters. Not wanting any leaks or scandal, Popeye is locked in a cell to do cold turkey, against his wishes. Hackman's acting whilst doing cold turkey is incredible, I guarantee the images will stay with you.

For me the ending of this film is right up there with the best endings ever. Fighting flash backs, exhausted, but never giving up. Real cool movie.
