The French Connection (1971)
This is a fairly average crime drama in which the cops are trying to bust a drug ring. It wasn't any different than Bad Boys or any of the Lethal Weapon movies. There really wasn't anything that stood out to me as anything special. Except for the car chase! I love a good car chase scene in a movie and this one was fantastic. Even more recent films that I have watched with all their high tech cars and special effects cannot compare to this car chase. It is worth it to watch the entire movie for the car chase alone. Also the young Gene Hackman is rather handsome in this movie. I will give this movie a 6/10 for being decent overall with an awesome car chase.
