Really rather good
Whilst French cinema likes to tend to the philosophical, French action films are often well watchable and underrated.
Overdose is well written, acted, directed and edited, and provides a satisfying drama. The villains are villainous, and the cops determined, and although this is only going to end one way, the turns along the way keep you entertained.
In places, it is not an easy watch (I said the villains are villainous), and there is little relief from the relentless focus of both sides. There is a little bit of sex, but it is not very sexy, rather unlike a French film in that respect.
The pacing of the film is enjoyable, through the borderlands between France and Spain, and the camerawork is hard to fault.
Definitely worth a watch if you like action crime drama.
French Connection Wannabe Film Fails to Engage
The film’s title of “Overdose” was appropriate for a film that included far too many characters and extraneous subplots. It aspired to be a thriller in the tradition of “The French Connection.” But it turned out to be a convoluted epic of drug traffickers extending from Spain to France.
The major drug operation included the transportation and exchange of an enormous shipment of cocaine across the Pyrenees and into Southern France. But the traffickers announced their arrival not only with a large convoy of black cars, but also with a leading motorcycle escort!
An improbable romance developed between two of the detectives. At least those romantic sparks offered a pause from the overly violent action, led by a sadistic thug among the traffickers.
It is difficult even to recall many of the characters in this turgid film. The filmmakers were unsuccessful in tying together all of the loose ends with a lengthy confessional speech at the end that offered background on two warring drug families. But that monologue was too little, too late for a film that was bogged down in plot strands that did not allow the audience to genuinely become engaged in the action.
In a film of this nature, there should be an element of redemption. But in “Overdose,” there was none. In “The French Connection,” the drug mastermind may escape, but “Popeye” Doyle is left to remain vigilante over the mean streets of New York. In “Overdose,” the mood remained bleak in this utterly depressing film.
