French Connection II (1975)



Picking up a handful of years after the Oscar-winning original left off, Gene Hackman’s Detective Jimmy “Popeye” Doyle is still on the trail of Fernando Rey’s French drug dealer. This time, the hunt takes him to the mean and humid streets of Marseille where his prey has gone to ground. Directed by John Frankenhei­mer, the distinctiv­e setting and fresh plot help keep things from staling.
