I kept wondering why French Connection II hadn't stayed on location in New York, where Popeye belonged, instead of going to Marseille, a place it's patently clear no sane superior would ever send him.

Oftentimes the plot is sacrificed to an action statement... The acting, however, Is faultless.

I believe that The French Connection II is all about the slow-burn chase. And I believe the film succeeds in being its own unique thriller that doesn't mindlessly ape its predecessor.

Couldn't even hold the original film's hat, but earns points just for not sucking outright.

John Frankenheimer's ("The Manchurian Candidate") version outshines William Friedkin's 1971 original.

More conventional than its predecessor, but it's still unconventional by the cop thriller standard set by a wash of anonymous, lesser films. [Blu-ray]

While it certainly is a couple of notches below its action classic original, French Connection II is still a darned good action film that maintains the core of its central character and has some added layers that are genuinely disturbing.
