1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth buying (unless you like G Hackman), 23 April 2009
This review is from: French Connection 1 & 2 Box Set [DVD] [1975] (DVD)
If I liked G Hackman , I might have given them two stars, but no more.

Do not believe the hype.

One or two interesting moments but that is all.

Do not believe this review, if you can call it that. As crime thrillers go these two are amongst the best films of the 70s. Very well acted, directed and photographed.

MrViewer has a habit of trashing classic films, in two or three lines. These normally contain insubstantial statements like "I liked the scenery".

This is one no better:
Line 1 - "If I liked G. Hackman.."
In what way don't you like G. Hackman and why?
Please justify the statement. Why do you dislike one of the best actors of the 70s and 80s?

Line 2 - "Do not believe the hype".
What hype? The films are both over 30 years old and have been out on DVD for years.

Line 3 - "One or two interesting moments but that is all".
What can I say about that - well its of no use to anybody wanting to know about the films thats for sure.

There are two films in this set, you've given them both 1 star and written a review of 28 words for the DVD set (never mind any extras). Either you're doing it to wind people up (its working) or are incapable/can't be bothered to justify your sweeping generalisations.

As per my comment on your review of Unforgiven I am the first to say you have a perfect right to dislike the films and to post a 1 star reviews. However backing up your 1 star reviews with some substance would help people to make informed decisions about their purchases.

Go ahead make my day!

This troll doesn't understand cinema at all. Item: he can't decide whether a particular film is a masterpiece or a mess, so he gives it 3. Item: He calls a film 'one of the best ever' and grudgingly gives it 4 stars.
He is a prat.

I saw this film soon after its release and what struck me was how closely it followed the book; which I also throughly enjoyed. So, I have decided to renew my acquintance with the film.

Dear me, what a mean spirited review of two classic films. "If I liked G Hackman" - why did he watch it if he disliked the main actor, who is on camera practically the entire time in both films? I'm surprised he didn't use the word "boring", which seems to be a favourite word in this person's reviews.

Just having a quick look at your other reviews, you do seem to waste rather a lot of money. Oh well.

Tony Howard - I would agree with your comment. Still, Mr Viewer has to be congratulated for reviewing the Mary Millington documentary and Nudes of the World. One can understand why he was disappointed with the Jimmy Cliff film.
