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.

Hackman again gives a brilliant performance as Doyle.
