Inspired by the real-life exploits of New York cop Eddie Egan (who was also the basis for Gene Hackman’s ‘Popeye’ Doyle character in The French Connection), Badge 373 is a tough detective thriller, comparable to William Friedkin’s more celebrated feature. Robert Duvall (The Godfather, Breakout) delivers a powerfully authentic performance as a brutal New York detective, ruthlessly hunting for the killer of his partner against a backdrop of social upheaval and violent gang wars.
