Movie review: The French Connection
I try not to think in generalities, but I'm beginning to realize that I don't really like 1970's style movies. This one really didn't do much for me. The story of a couple of tough-guy narcotics officers tracing down a drug ring with ties to France didn't really grab my attention.
Ordinarily it's something I'd be interested in seeing, but this time it just really didn't capture or hold my interest. The scenes seemed hodgepodged together and I had a hard time following the storyline.
I did enjoy Hackman and Scheiders' acting, but I didn't care for the movie.
