A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it is mostly famous for its amazing car chase and while this scene was indeed really impressive, this movie had actually also much more to offer. First of all, it was dealing with some counterfeit money makers which was so much more original than your usual drug dealers and it was apparently do... read more

Film Journal 2020 (105 movies items)

"The actual sequel to The French Connection. A very, very direct continuation of Friedkin's obsession with the obsessive, with an overtly enthusiastic (putting it mildly) cop, how all-business types deal with the consequences of death and kick-ass music accompanying kick-ass action scenes. Packs a hell of a punch as the first half of brutal, quick action primes you for one movie, then unleashes an entirely different type of hell during the second half. "

"8.12. DVD Uusintakatselu. Monellakin tavalla jatkaa siitä, mihin Kovaotteiset miehet jäi. Hyvän ja pahan raja alkaa olla jo olematon. On vain hyviä tarkoituksia. Realismin tavoittelusta joustetaan perinteisemmän draaman vuoksi. Nyt kun kerran vertaillaan, niin hyvinkin tasavahvoja kokonaisuuksia. "

A good movie

“Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it is mostly famous for its amazing car chase and while this scene was indeed really impressive, this movie had actually also much more to offer. First of all, it was dealing with some counterfeit money makers which was so much more original than your usual drug dealers and it was apparently done in such a realistic way that it inspired some viewers to make some fake money after watching this flick. Furthermore, I really enjoyed the gritty tone, they really made some bold decisions and I was just floored by what they did in the final act. Indeed, you won't see very often a movie ending with the main character getting shot in the head just like that.  So, the damned thing had a lot of q” read more
