Dent "FRENCH CONNECTION II," Gene Hackman, Fernando Rey. Film Review At the end of the original "French Connection," Gene Hackman as New York narcotics cop Popeye Doyle was standing there surrounded by a heap of dead bodies while his ^chief nemesis, Charnier (Fernando Rey), escaped the trap and disappeared. In "French Connection II;" a well done sequel to the first movie, Popeye takes up the chase again but this time the action is all on Charnier's home ground --.Marseilles. Popeye arrives in Marseilles on April 1 to find the narcotics squad up to its elbows in fish innards, the '' victim of a French April Fool's Day joke. After this inauspicious start, things go rapidly downhill. Popeye and the French detective in charge (Bernard Fresson) get along like Gen. de Gaulle and President' Roosevelt which is to say not at all. The situation is not helped by Popeye's continually referring to his hosts as "you (seven letter ob- senity) 'Frogs." The language in this sequel, I ought to point Out for the benefit of the fastidious, is every bit as profane as it was in the original. Popeye goes bouncing around Marseilles like a Gallic nightmare of the American tourist, not knowing a word of the 'language but determined to find Charnier whether the French police want to help or not. What Popeye-doesn't know is that he is a set-up -- that he is being deliberately exposed in order to draw Charnier out and that his own fate is of little regard to either his own superiors back in New York or to the French. Charnier takes the bait. He kidnaps Popeye and coldly determines to destroy him by turning him into an addict. What's more, the French police blow their end of. the set up. They can't find Charnier who meanwhile is pumping Popeye full of heroin. After administering what he believes is a fatal overdose, Charnier dumps Popeye back on the police doorstep.* " " But ashamed of his part in the set up, the Marseilles narcotics chief sets out to save Popeye. He can't call in doctors because doctors leave records and if New York ever found out that Popeye was a junkie . . . So he makes Popeye go- cold turkey Recovered, Popeye becomes a one man demolition squad -- burning down a^hotel^and wrecking a dry dock -- before he finds Charnier agajn. ,, Hackman, who is one of the best actors around,- turns in his usual excellent performance and he gets good support from a more than capable French cast. I always play a little game whenever I go to the State. I make bets about when the projector will break down. Not if-- when. This time it was j u s t as C h a r n i e r ' s thugs grabbed Popeye. Repair time: 15 minutes. It does rather spoil the continuity. 1:00 Special Midnight MATINEES EVERY DAY!
