Reviews
Mine: A hard film for me to rate. Such an icon of cinema that I have seen only now. Spectacular performances from Hackman and Scheider. A shame I did not see it in the theatre, if I had I am sure it would have gotten a higher rating.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A pair of NYC cops in the Narcotics Bureau stumble onto a drug smuggling job with a French connection.
