A good movie

Since I kept hearing some pretty good things about this movie, I was really eager to check it out. Well, it is mostly famous for its amazing car chase and while this scene was indeed really impressive, this movie had actually also much more to offer. First of all, it was dealing with some counterfeit money makers which was so much more original than your usual drug dealers and it was apparently do... read more

"Two Secret Service agents are hot on the trail of a Master counterfeiter through the corrupted grit of the L.A. underground. With the criminal proving to be elusive, the agents start participating in activities that will put their badges and their police codes into jeopardy. Directed by William Friedkin, To Live And Die In L.A. is a police story that winds and weaves through the path of compromised processes and whatever-it-takes tactics that can lead to the kind of in-department corruption "

"REWATCH At times its brutal violence is so surprising that it's refreshing. The film's score and its sound effects really pop. Visceral and thrilling. William Friedkin delivers another gem. "

"Kun ehodoton taiteilija tekee toimintaelokuvaa, jälki on silkkaa viihdettä, erinomaista viihdettä. Pidän muuten Willem Dafoesta. Hän saa mihin vain elokuvaan hämärää särmää, vinksahtanutta kulmaa. Hän on ollut melko taitava valitessaan yhteistyökumppaneitaan. "

"The actual sequel to The French Connection. A very, very direct continuation of Friedkin's obsession with the obsessive, with an overtly enthusiastic (putting it mildly) cop, how all-business types deal with the consequences of death and kick-ass music accompanying kick-ass action scenes. Packs a hell of a punch as the first half of brutal, quick action primes you for one movie, then unleashes an entirely different type of hell during the second half. "

"8.12. DVD Uusintakatselu. Monellakin tavalla jatkaa siitä, mihin Kovaotteiset miehet jäi. Hyvän ja pahan raja alkaa olla jo olematon. On vain hyviä tarkoituksia. Realismin tavoittelusta joustetaan perinteisemmän draaman vuoksi. Nyt kun kerran vertaillaan, niin hyvinkin tasavahvoja kokonaisuuksia. "
