Night Owl

The French Connection

Excellent car chase, racing through Brooklyn under the El, trying to keep up with a train. Amazing, Gene Hackman commanders a muscle car and just plows through. Ronin must have taken alot from this. Unfortunately I couldn’t hear everything that was going on but the the plot involves Gene Hackman trying to catch these, French drug dealers. The important part is the subway chase scene. Hell there is even another chase on the Shuttle to Times Sq! Possibly taking cues from Le Samouraļ. And of course the El chase scene ends with the shooting on the steps of the station. Finally get to see what all the text books were talking about.
