4 out of 10 Gritty Thriller
Conor from Louth, 09 Dec 2010
Classic 70s cop flick. Weren't films a lot simpler back then? The acting, plot and soundtrack are very straightforward but all the more enjoyable. The chase scene under the railway is great and the tension built up in the foot patrol are amazing - especially the subway scene. Great show.

What's it about....
Narcotics cop Popeye Doyle pits his wits against an international drugs ring attempting to infiltrate New York, despite official warnings to back off... All-time great action thriller (with a remarkable car chase below the elevated railway!) which won five Oscars in 1971.
