Proves to be a worthy extension

In this failed spin-off of the lead character from the classic "French Connection" movies, Jimmy "Popeye" Doyle (admirably portrayed by Ed O'Neill) investigates a drug overdose which turns out to be a murder, and finds himself caught in international affairs. This almost unheard of spin-off TV movie is too often overlooked; O'Neill's rendering of Popeye Doyle is easily comparable in depth as Gene Hackman's Oscar-winning performance. Flexes fine directing and script. O'Neill adds believable depth to the character, and the story is never overwrought. A worthy extension of the "French Connection"'s gritty form.
