I have absolutely no idea why The French Connection is in the top 250.
Nothing really wrong with the acting or the cinematography; the story is
just too simple and it never gets to you. It doesn't even come close.
I happen to like movies that have some emotional effect on me:
pity, revenge and (unreachable) love are themes that I usually
The French Connection didn't have these elements and neither does it have
other interesting themes. It's not Hackman's fault or any of the other
actors, the story is just too average. If you want to see an excellent
with Gene Hackman, I suggest "Mississippi Burning"..

Worst movie of 2008 Hayden Christensen has do it again! Bad, boring and annoying acting. But the story is also bad. A story of a jumper? That something that I not can understand. But Jumper is a origanally movie. Notting Hill Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts are realy lovely in this movie. It has so much humor beceause Grant plays again a man who have verry stupid actions that makes you laugh. I realy enjoyid..
Best phrase to describe this film? Tour de Force
This film is just one of the many reasons that I love 70's cinema.
Everything from the music, editing, acting and everything in between.
The famous car chase sequence rivals anything you'll see today. All the
fancy camera tricks, and CGI don't hold a candle to this fast paced
thrill ride of a film. Gene Hackman, and Roy Schieder have excellent
chemistry. That coupled with the documentary feel of the picture, as
Well as Billy Friedkin's vision make this film a landmark of the 70's.
Its a real shame Friedkin's career went down hill after the film
revolution of the decade. His track record for the era is very
impressive. As far as I'm concerned his early career was every bit as
important as directors like Coppola, Ashby, Scorcese, and even
Spielberg. It received A well deserved Oscar in 1972 against another
great movie (The Last Picture Show) as well as A Clockwork Orange.
