You see, this information was a bad joke. Over here, on April Fools' Day, it's a custom. Only it's usually a paper one. They really pinned it to you this time.
Nickname: Popeye. This another one of your April Fool jokes? I like reading it here. It was a big arrest. We have an authentic American hero here.
Doyle, I was requested to help you. I didn't request that you come here. But naturally I wanted to know. I found out. I read in the papers that somebody stole your.
My friends are still on the force. Am I bein' interrogated here? Five people killed. It seems quite a lot. Doyle then begins to find himself as a fish out of water in France, where he is matched with a language he cannot understand.
Doyle is shown round the police station where he finds his desk is situated directly outside the toilets. Doyle continues to struggle with the language and tries to order drinks in a bar.
He eventually makes himself understood, befriending a bartender while buying him drinks and they eventually stumble out of the bar together at closing time, followed by two men.
The next day, while Doyle is watching a beach volleyball match, Charnier sees him from a restaurant below. Determined to find Charnier on his own, Popeye escapes from what are in fact French police escorts keeping watch on him in case Charnier would get him: Doyle doesn't understand that he is being used as a bait by French police The same night Charnier sends his men to capture Doyle, killing one of his watchers in the process, and take him to a secluded, seedy hotel in the old quarter for interrogation.
For several weeks, Doyle is injected with heroin in effort to force him into capitulation. Scenes of his growing addiction follow, including one in which an elderly lady Cathleen Nesbitt visits him in his befuddled state.
She talks to him, declaring herself to be English, and saying that her son is "just like" him, while stroking his arm. Initially she seems compassionate to his plight, but a change in the camera angle reveals her 'track' marks.
The gentle old lady steals his watch. Charnier interrogates a needy Doyle about what he knows, but Doyle says he was sent here just because he is the only one who can recognize him.
Charnier believes Doyle, so lets him go after one massive injection. Doyle is dumped barely alive but addicted in front of police headquarters.
Gruelling scenes of resuscitation and drug withdrawal follow. When he is well enough to be on his feet, Doyle starts back on the road to regaining his physical fitness.
He searches Marseille and, finding the hideout he was brought to, sets it on fire. He breaks into a room at the hotel and finds Charnier's henchmen, whom he pursues and interrogates as to the whereabouts of Charnier.
A delivery of opium is taking place at the harbour for a future production due. French police hold Doyle responsible for the inspector's death and want to send him home.
They eventually spot the ship's captain on his way to meet Charnier's lieutenant, whom Doyle recognizes. A tailing ensues taking the police to the drug warehouse, which they raid, but are met with a barrage of fire.

All Critics 25 Top Critics 1 Fresh 19 Rotten 6. I kept wondering why French Connection II hadn't stayed on location in New York, where Popeye belonged, instead of going to Marseille, a place it's patently clear no sane superior would ever send him.
Roger Ebert. The whole film is essentially one long chase, separated by constant disagreements and politics between nationalities.
Mike Massie. I believe that The French Connection II is all about the slow-burn chase. And I believe the film succeeds in being its own unique thriller that doesn't mindlessly ape its predecessor.
Ed Travis. Oftentimes the plot is sacrificed to an action statement The acting, however, Is faultless. Jacoba Atlas. French Connection II, sequel or no, comes off as more of a felt work, and what I make contact with through it is a director.
Richard T. Dragan Antulov. Christopher Null. The last ten minutes are the best thing about it that final shot is one of the best of the '70s , and it's no coincidence that in this ten minutes Frankenheimer returns to his technician passions.
Walter Chaw. While it certainly is a couple of notches below its action classic original, French Connection II is still a darned good action film that maintains the core of its central character and has some added layers that are genuinely disturbing.
Ryan Cracknell. James Kendrick. If you take away comparisons with the original, it's a reasonably solid, if flawed, crime thriller; but it does shrink into the shadow cast by its vastly superior predecessor.
Brian Webster. More conventional than its predecessor, but it's still unconventional by the cop thriller standard set by a wash of anonymous, lesser films.
