"5.4. Haluaisin tavallaan rakastua To Live and Die in L.A.:n jokaiseen ruutuun, koska kasarimpaa kyttätrilleriä saa oikeasti hakea. Aivan timanttisen soundtrackin ja mielettömästi valaistun kuvauksen synteesiä voisi ihailla vaikka kuinka kauan, ja jotkut kohtaukset vetävät cooliuden niin äärimmilleen, että tapitin niitä aivan innoissani. Pidän ilman muuta päähenkilöiden toilailuista sekä Willem Dafoen olemuksesta, ja onhan tämä selkeää pohjustusta Mannin Manhunterin teemoille"

"The cover looks stupid, the back reads lame, it looks like it has nothing going for it besides the william friedken direction. you would be wrong. so wrong. this is a vicious slow burn. Read confession of a counterfeiter as a companion piece. it is right on the button. so good. so hardcore. so badass. and watch, everytime there is a fight, the first thing someone does is kick the other guy in the nuts. every time.

"Katsottu: 1.1.2014 DVD:ltä William Friedkinin (Manaaja) ohjaamassa poliisielokuvassa FBI-agentti Richard Chance (William L. Petersen) alkaa jahdata rahanväärentäjä Rick Mastersia (Willem Dafoe), joka tappoi hänen parinsa vain paria päivää ennen tämän eläkettä. Chance aikoo saada Mastersin kiinni keinolla millä hyvänsä, mistä hänen uusi parinsa, rehti John Vukovich (John Pankow) ei pidä. Petyin vähän tähän, koska oli aika kehuttu ja trailerin perusteella tämä vaikutti j"

"24.12. Holiday film #5 "You're working for me Now" This one is a beauty. Great music, great atmosphare, great cynical story about the thin line between cops and the baddies. "

"August 18 "He's a lying son of a bitch! He's probably the motherfucker who did me. He ratted me to the feds. I'll kill him when I get out! I'm gonna give that fuckin' scumbag a serious headache. May God strike me dead if I don't waste him." This was a really awesome movie. It had great dialogue, the music was awesome and Willem Dafoe an actor who rarely had amazing performances in my opinion manages to pull off a great performance. It has an 8.5 contacts rating and after seeing it, I can see"

Filmsite's Greatest Chase Scenes in Film History (83 movies items)

"In one of William Friedkin's greatest films, a most- and well-remembered car stunt and chase sequence was the one in which undercover US Treasury Secret Agent Richard Chance (William L. Petersen before CSI) drove his tan Chevrolet up LA's 710 freeway exit ramp directly into multiple lanes of oncoming traffic - and at top-speed near-missed every one of them - yet caused the jack-knifing of a tractor-trailer! (One astonishing shot was an over-the-shoulder driver's POV shot of the entire freeway, "

Vive la Cliché! (12 movies items)

"The death of a partner This is what makes it personal for our hero. The death of the partner who only had three days till retirement. There's a much bigger reason to hate the bad guys now that they crossed the line of hurting loved ones. If they were criminals with nothing more to them, who gives a hoot? Go and get rich or whatever it is you wanna do. Clint Eastwood in particular has been through this so often it's no wonder he's always such a grump. And don't even get me started on James Bond."

"This is an excellent non-stop action thriller movie about two dirty cops on the trail of a counterfeiter. Under appreciated by the critics when it was first released who probably didn't understand the story properly. A must watch for fans of 80's movies."

"To Live and Die in L.A. is undeniably very well made - from the performances to the more technical aspects - but the bottom line is, it's just not all that compelling. - David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews"

" All I can say is fucking WOW! As if the title isn't epic enough, William Friedkin (director of The Exorcist and French Connection) packs a punch with this Californian crime drama about a ball busting cop who will do anything to get his man, a counterfeiter played excellently by Willem Dafoe. On the surface, it looks like a really long episode of Miami Vice, what with all the 80s cheese and sleaze. When the neon green credits flashed onto the screen, I was like great! Just what I need, tac"
