Cedric Jimenez takes the helm for this action thriller set in Marseilles during the 1970s and '80s, and following the violent six-year struggle waged by Police Magistrate Pierre Michel (Jean Dujardin) to take down the French Connection - a notorious drug ring led by the ruthless Tany Zampa (Gilles Lellouche). ~ Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A procedural epic whose complicated narrative is propelled by visceral action sequences and an unusually thrilling soundtrack."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
"A fascinating true-crime story gets a flat, formulaic treatment in The Connection. Where's the jolting, no-holds-barred energy of Popeye Doyle when you need it?"
‑ Jordan Adler, We Got This Covered
"A very compelling true crime tale. Like the flipside of THE FRENCH CONNECTION."
‑ Chris Bumbray, JoBlo's Movie Emporium
"Given that the only real enjoyment for The Connection is its connection to Friedkin's epic films (let's not forget the under-loved sequel), this examination of the Marseille heroin lords, with their political and police corruption, is entirely redundant."
‑ Jason Gorber, Twitch
