Plot: once Frank was a crack cop his colleagues used to call "the hawk" (hence the title) ;but his wife perished in a car crash ,and his daughter went into coma.He has become a human wreck ,the ghost of himself.Gus,the killer he tracked the day his wife died reappears and commits more crimes ;Frank the Hawk wakes up:the hunt begins and will last the whole film :in the streets ,in the country,in a disused factory ;disowned by his superiors ,he carries on and ....miracles still happen.

The cine buff side of the actor surfaces in a final scene which takes place in the cinema museum ,although he does not direct here;when he does ,in Belmondo's swansong " Un Homme Et Son Chien" (2010),his cinema enthusiast will surface here there and everywhere,not only because it's a remake of De Sica's "Umberto D" ,but because of its many hints at other movies.

The leftist review from "La Saison Cinematographique 1984" was particularly hard on the movie,going as far as to write that this thriller verged on fascism !"the super-cop must get rid of this vermin so that his daughter can be born again" .It was politically correct to write that in the champagne socialists' France.

Frank Zodiak (sic) is none other than one of these stereotyped cops ,we've seen so many times it's impossible to count them all;self- defense is a burning subject and it takes a great director to handle this kind of situation,someone like Eastwood.

Cine buffs who 've never visited the "Musée Du Cinema" in the Palais De Chaillot might be interested .
