4 out of 10 Interesting follow-up
Michael from Clare, 22 May 2012
An intriguing follow up to the excellent original. Popeye Doyle is the classic "fish out of water" as his obsessive hunt for Charnier takes him to the seedy streets of Marseilles. A slower and more ponderous movie than the first, which in some ways is a good thing. The movie really gives a dark insight into the horrors of drug addiction. Hackman again gives a brilliant performance as Doyle.
