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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

More than 30 years after its release, "The French Connection" has become one of the signpost cop dramas of American cinema. That its portrayal of law enforcement officiers is far less than flattering is hardly the point. The movie is stylish, brilliantly acted, authentically filmed, and features perhaps the most amazing chase sequence in movie history (the biggest reason why it is so amazing is explained in the extras that come with this DVD).
Having said all of that, the five-star DVD edition is an absolute must own for those who love the movie. It contains a full disc of extras, including two documentaries, a bunch of deleted scenes, as well as other goodies. If only every great movie was available in a package this complete.
