Synopsis

Gene Hackman made his name as Jimmy 'Popeye' Doyle, the cantankerous narcotics cop at the cold heart of William Friedkin's masterful crime thriller. A French drug cartel is pumping heroin into America with alarming ease - until Popeye and his partner Russo (Roy Scheider) bring a little justice to les Marseillais. Winner of five Oscars including Best Picture, Actor (Hackman) and Director (Friedkin), it would have walked away with six if they handed out gongs for Best Car Chase. Next to this, Bullitt's a blank.
