Aprakadabra's Movie Diary - 2012 (460 movies items)

"31.7 Tiukka ja realistinen tarina miehistä, jotka tekevät kaikkensa napatakseen roistot. Gene Hackman tekee yhden parhaista rooleista ikinä, eikä hänen hahmo jää vain pintariipaisuksi. Jalan käydyt takaa - ajot, ovat myös todella tiukkoja ja hienosti tehtyjä."

"It has some truly epic showpieces (namely the famous train chase) and some great refined performances. However the plot is needlessly labyrinthine and takes a long time to peak."

"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 "

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.

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"
