My expectations of The French Connection were pretty high because not only did it win Best Picture but it even beat A Clockwork Orange and Stanley Kubrick. It is a very good film that I did really enjoy but it did feel a little bit slow to start off with. I personally think it took about half an hour to get into 'Popeye' Doyle and 'Cloudy' Russo. 1971 was a great year in cinema and did feature a l... read more

A film that opens with a Santa Claus and a white man giving chase to a black man deserves to be given credit. That aside, French Connection is a monumental achievement, regarding the realistic characters and the realism in the nature of the surroundings. It's a starkly tough film, harsh, and brutal.

Description: William Friedkin's gritty police drama portrays two tough New York City cops trying to intercept a huge heroin shipment coming from France.

Movies I found overrated (16 movies items)

"It may have been groundbreaking at the time, but since this movie came out there have been better cop movies than this one. Everything about this movie is good, but it's far from the best crime movie."

"September 22 "This is Doyle. I'm sittin' on Frog One." "Yeah, I know that. We got the Westbury covered like a tent." "The Westbury my ass! I got him on the shuttle at Grand Central, now what the hell's going on up there?" While this was a good movie, I found it to be extremely overrated and I just don't see what is remarkable about this movie. I just found every aspect of this movie to be good, but still overrated. I don't think I'll ever get what's so great about this movie."
