A magnetic and disturbing film that makes visual austerity its main figure of style and moves to Marseille the fight against the drug trafficking of the aggressive Popeye Doyle (Gene Hackman). French Connection II takes the misplaced character to a plot full of narrative turns and culminates in a long and shocking sequence, in which Hackman pursues Fernando Rey through the streets of the French city, with almost ten minutes of footage. A thriller of those before. From the era in which there were directors like John Frankenheimer.
