An excellent crime movie that's one of the best in the genre with a terrific car chase and some great performances.

Two years before Lethal Weapon, this film introduced the "I'm too old for this shit" line. To Live and Die in L.A. is pretty much Heat meets Lethal Weapon, The Departed and an episode of Miami Vice.

Interesting film but not one I'd look to recommend these days. Points of interest. The acting has that over earnest jerkiness to it that categorises a late 70s/early 80s film... Yet the plot is the kind of thing that LA Takedown owes a lot to - and we know how that was reconstituted to become the almost flawless work of art that is Heat. There's some strange goings on, a lot of practical stunts (with a car chase that perhaps betters the director's own French Connection one), some strange but brave plot twists. Yet it all reeks of early 80s surface level depth. 5/10

Amazing movie that has pretty much everything you want and doesn't bore one second. It has fight-scenes, sexy women, manly (but not overly manly) men The filming is great, the score is epic, the action good and the plot to sit on the edge of your seat for. It's like playing an epic GTA game but without all the nuissances. And man does it pack a punch

Slow starting but then getting interesting.

i like the format of hours that was shown sometimes, which was without points or seperation. That is how i do.

Masters is so cruel and clever. William dafoe is young.

There were some nnice running scenes. While speaking for example with the cop, & More
