Pssst, want to check out Serpico in our new look?

...Serpico doesn't even remotely try to be The French Connection. Other than the fact that they're gritty cop dramas, they couldn't be any more different in what they aim to achieve. An absurd comparison.
Both superb movies for entirely different reasons.
Great movie, very good performance by Al Pacino. I also liked the overall atmosphere of the movie.
This movie is critical to Pacino's development as an actor. We would not have his best performance without this film, his best being Godfather II.
