Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 05/19/1975
"...Hackman exploit[s the tension] most effectively. The perverse intensity and the anguish...recall some of [Frankenheimer's] best work in THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE and SECONDS..."

Product Description:

Gene Hackman returns in his Oscar award-winning role as the hard-hitting detective Popeye Doyle. Doyle travels to Marseilles in pursuit of the heroin dealers who he hit, but failed to kill in New York. In the south of France, he is kidnapped by the dealers and forced to become as addict in captivity. But Popeye is too tough to be beaten and when he is finally set free, he quits the junk cold turkey and undergoes an agonizing withdrawal. After he comes clean, he goes after his enemy Charnier, the heroin dealing king pin, played by Fernando Rey. He burns down the hotel where he was held hostage, survives a shootout and finally does away with his enemies once and for all. With its tension-filled action, inspired chases, inexhaustible excitement and Hackman's superb performance, French Connection ll is every bit as good, if not better, than the original.
