Gene Hackman is an actor who doesn’t do bad movie or bad acting, great in westerns, war movies, courtroom dramas and under rated in comedy. Hackman is a throwback to the days of Bogart and Tracey he’s a man’s man and an actor’s actor. Making an initial impact in Bonnie and Clyde it was the French Connection that made his name and he has regularly appeared in great movies over the decades. Not as highly rated as his contemporaries, never the less major directors love to work with him. Major Hollwood players also are comfortable appearing alongside him as his style does not detract from his co-stars.

He's played alongside some of the biggest movie stars and has always held his own, Hackman is one of those actors that you know delivers. He is both charismatic and unfussy. a true great.
