Movies #36 The French Connection 2

The French Connection 2. With the exception of one scene that was possibly the most annoying sequence I’ve ever seen, this was a much better movie than I expected it to be. Not the equal of the original by any stretch of the imagination, but still a fun cops and robbers picture.

I really did praise the fast-forward function on my remote during the scene in question however… Without going into too much detail, it’s a scene which features “Popeye” Doyle getting stinking drunk to celebrate having recovered from his lowest point ever. To call his behavior, voice and mannerism annoying is to do a disservice to the word. It’s like sandpaper across your tongue and the scene just drags and drags and drags and drags…
