  Old Skool Cop Movie

| | See all Rambo456's reviews (1259)

Had been looking to watch this movie for some time now, due to it's reputation and the fact that it stars the legendary Gene Hackman.
I didn't feel it was the great it is made out to be, bear in mind I am watching it about 35 years after it's release.
And from what I hear it inspired a lot of the cop movies after that, so maybe I can't fully appreciate the impact it made at the time of release.
But I did enjoy it for the Story, Acting and the Gritty Direction.
Especially Enjoyed the Good Cop - Bad Cop pairing of Gene Hackman and Roy Schneider.
The Cat n Mouse chase at the Subway Station was really well executed.
No SFX Car and Train Chase through New York is fantastic.
On a sentimental note it was Nice to see the Brooklyn of the 70's, which became another character in the movie

  great movie-ok transfer

ive had this movie on dvd for years and i was excited to get the blu-ray, however i dont think they have cleaned it up enough for it to be blu ray quality. still a great classic movie though.

Ive never seen this movie before, so I decided do buy it in this bargain. I have to say that when i open the BD case I was surprised because for the price of 1 BD you get 3! Yes, 3! This edition cames with French Connection I&II and another BD that have over 8 hours of bonus features.

This is THE deal.

sorry about my english :)
