I actually saw this one before seeing the first. Now that I've seen both several times, I must admit that rarely have I seen a better follow up. Gene Hackman is brilliant in this cat and mouse chase in the french town of Marseilles. Especially his acting in the cold turkey scenes are just amazing. It's a sad fact that they don't do these types of movies anymore. Today it's all about overloading your senses, thinking that more is always better. This is a masterpiece in sparingly used soundeffects, music and cinematography. If you've seen the first one, make sure to see this one. At all cost.
