"Gene Hackman as Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle Gene Hackman is one of those guys who are too good to be type-casted. I could have chosen a few different iconic roles of his, but I chose this one, because many people have seen it."

"15.4. Paha tämänkään kaanoniin on mitään uutta lisätä. Ehdotonta 70-luvun trillerien aatelia mielenkiintoisilla henkilöhahmoilla, joita onnistutaan ihailtavasti syventämään jopa toimintakohtauksien aikana. Etenkin se kuuluisa takaa-ajokohtaus on aivan käsittämättömän intensiivistä seurattavaa."

" Watched March 4th - Netflix DVD - Rewatch "All right, Popeye's here! - get your hands on your heads, get off the bar, and get on the wall" - Popeye Doyle It has been a very long time since I have seen The French Connection, and on seeing it again - it really didn't hold up well - I thought it was a sloppily made movie - the directing, writing and especially the editing - but the worst part was Popeye Doyle, Gene Hackman did a good job portraying him - but as a character, Doyle was just plain "

The French Connection

“The film revolves around the smuggling of narcotics between Marseille, France and New York City, USA.

After seeing a drug transaction take place in a bar, Russo goes in to make an arrest and the suspect makes a break for it. After catching up with their suspect and delivering a severe beating after the suspect cuts Russo on the arm with a knife, the detectives aggressively interrogate the man, forcin” read more

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2011 (713 movies items)

"10.12. 2011 Along with "The Exorcist" and "To Live and Die in L.A.", "The French Connection" is one of William Friedkin's masterpieces. It is based on true events but this fact doesn't make the movie any less exciting. Actually, all the intense action scenes, like the famous chase scene, are in fact more impressive when you know that these things have really happened. In the plot two tough detectives "Popeye" Doyle and Buddy Russo are searching for a big group of drug dealers. One of the crimi"

"Why's it so good? Gene Hackman came back as hard-edged police detective, Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle, with John Frankenheimer on board as director. This sequel takes Doyle out of his familiar New York surroundings and drops him into the incomprehensible world of Marseille, where he pursues Franco Rey, the drug dealer who escaped justice at the end of the first movie. What he finds there tests Popeye to the limit."
