2.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, terrible Blu-Ray transfer March 9 2009
Format:Blu-ray
One of the coolest of the 'Best Picture' winners comes to Blu-Ray....and unfortunately it's one of the worst looking Blu-Ray releases I own, if not THE worst. Apparently William Friedkin intentionally added a ton of grain to the transfer thinking it would be fitting for the style of the movie. While a little grain would have been a nice touch, he went waaaaaay overboard here, and honestly it's more than a little distracting at times. Some scenes look fairly nice, but overall this is very bad looking disc and a real injustice to a great film. You might want to wait for future, more acceptable BRD release and hold onto that DVD a little while longer.

5.0 out of 5 stars look behind you! May 17 2010
Format:Blu-ray
I own both the DVD special edition and BLU-RAY special edition of this classic film..it is true that the transfer in close-ups and medium shots don't differ from the DVD transfer but the backgrounds have more detail also a greater depth of field than dvd...way more detail and in many occassion this is where you notice a difference.
If you don't have a special edition of this film, it's worth the purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Popeye kicks some ginzo ass in this film, and... March 27 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
gives Frog one nightmares. Classic film, I never get tired of watching it. From the very beginning, with the iconic scene of Doyle running down a perp in a Santa suit, to the final denouement--if you haven't seen this film yet, you should be in prison.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gritty but not Glamorous June 23 2009
Format:DVD
You may not like the characters in this movie, but it totally captures the seedy underbelly of New York in the early 70s. Gene Hackman plays the part brilliantly. I didn't actually expect to like this but was hooked from start to finish. Only disappointment was sound quality. Found I had to have the volume way up to properly follow the dialogue. But other than that a classic of early 70s cinema.

1.0 out of 5 stars another bore fest masquerading as a movie Oct. 25 2007
By falcon
Format:DVD
in my opinion,The French Connection is one long bore.Gene Hackman is a
gifted actor,but even he can't save this mess.William Friedkin has
managed to create a movie in which all of the action scenes(as well as
the rest of the movie)seem slow and boring.and in case you don't know
what the movie is about,here's a brief synopsis the way i saw it.cop
movie with bad dialogue,punctuated by boring action sequences,followed
by more bad dialogue and on and on.the writers should not escape notice
for their part in this disaster,either.i know this movie is considered
a classic,but i don't see it.this is just my view and i'm probably in
the minority,but that's how i saw this movie.i can only give The French
Connection 1/5.

5.0 out of 5 stars the 4th time viewing got even better experience July 2 2004
Format:DVD
simply fantastic! the 2nd dvd got lot of significant details about this great movie making. the quality of the dvds are so crispily sharp. very very good viewing experience. gene hackman admitted it set off his career and confessed the difficulties to bring himself into playing the popei role. by viewing his performance only proved that he's one of the greatest modern time actors. think back....almost all of his movies roles were great, no matter how lousy the movies themself was. gene hackman is a national treasure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Groundbreaking June 10 2004
Format:DVD
After two decades of watching squeaky clean LAPD Sergeant Joe Friday on "Dragnet", and decades of Chicago's favorite fed, Elliot Ness on "The Untouchables", and then the innocent buffoons of the NYPD on "Car 54 Where Are You?", it was little wonder that people of the t.v. era were shocked by this movie's unflinching look at New York's lawmen. THE FRENCH CONNECTION, if not for anything else, will be remembered as the film that ultimately de-romanticized the noble cop legend. Popeye Doyle (marvelouly portrayed by Gene Hackman) is the anti-cop. He is not a crooked cop by any means. However, he's bigoted, amoral, prone to violence, self-possessed, and oblivious to the rules of police conduct. Norman Mailer once said of bad cops that they are sworn to uphold the law but feel they are above it; that they are supposed to keep the peace, but are inherently violent. That's Popeye Doyle.
The plotline of the film is fairly simple: the police receive information about a major drug operation about to go down, and they try to prevent it and arrest everyone involved. But Director Friedkin infuses the film with the complexities and dreariness inherent in pursuing such a case. I developed an appreciation of the hours of stake-out drudgery that the police go through. And then, of course, there's the danger every policeman confronts.
There's something for everyone in this film, including the greatest car chase in movies (even if the car is chasing an elevated train). Note: the elevated tracks that Gene Hackman drives under are the same tracks that appeared in the opening credits of "Welcome Back, Kotter" and, more importantly, they are the same tracks that John Travolta saunters under in the open scene of "Saturday Night Fever". If you're interested, those are the elevated tracks of the West End line (now the "D" train) on 86th Street in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but not great March 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This movie was good, but it wasn't THAT good.
The ending itself is a HUGE left-off-hanging disappointment.
It doesn't really stand out from a lot of other cop movies that received far less attention.
