    The French Connection II
    This sequel to the Oscar-winning The French Connection picks up almost exactly where the earlier film leaves off. Still on the trail of drug kingpin Frog One (Fernando Rey), narcotics officer "Popeye" Doyle (Gene Hackman) leaves his Manhattan stomping grounds and heads for Marseilles. There, Popeye is captured by Frog One's minions, who pump him full of drugs in hopes of turning the cop into a hopeless junkie. After a grueling "cold turkey" treatment, Popeye is up and about and chasing after the villains, determined to mete out justice. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Worthy follow-up to a classic

      FC2 is not as great as flick as the first. But, this one takes the saga in a logical direction. The Blu-ray has a solid video transfer. Audio is decent, but don't expect a full surround experience. Special features include a good audio commentary by the director and actors, and a couple throwaway featurettes that did not do anything for me. Overall still a good buy given the price.

      French Connection 2 is a magnificent film that will not disappoint anyone who really loves good cinema. It is a landmark of the '70s, and one of the finest and most respectful (because it was as good as the original) sequels in film history.
