The Connection (2015)
Critic Consensus: The Connection doesn't do itself any favors by forcing comparisons to The French Connection, but it's a reasonably entertaining thriller in its own right.

News & Interviews for The Connection
Critic Reviews for The Connection
A byzantine, if ultimately conventional, heroic tale that feels like a guided tour down a familiar alley.
It's a stylish affair, very solidly made if not exactly breaking new ground in our understanding of events or in the way the movies depict them.
It may prove too slow for some and the meandering can be a little maddening, but overall it's worth the effort.
It starts with gunshots - a Mercedes and its driver are riddled by motorcycle-riding assassins in broad daylight - and the pace of "The Connection" is bang-bang brisk most of the rest of the way.
While the story lacks focus here and there, the film never feels overplayed. It's a work of bloody style and solid substance.
