Written By: JamieMcBain on 11/07/05 at 11:51 am

Anyone else here seen To Live And Die In L.A. ?  It's one of my favorite films. There is alot things I like about the movie...

1) Williem Dafoe as the film's villian, he gives a really chilling performance.
2) It's a gritty, action packed movie.
3) The car chase sequence.
4)  The soundtrack by Wang Chung.

I remember that movie, thought it was a bit disturbing how the star of the show dies at the end without any fanfare, kind of a wierd twist.. :-\\

Loved it and had to go out and get the DVD.  Sound track is great and the car chase was pretty intense.  Babes were pretty good looking as well!

I haven't seen this movie in years.  I need to get it on DVD :)

I liked the soundtrak too.  The title track was the only hit from it, and it was just 1 spot away from reaching the U.S. top 40 in 1985  :\'(

This movie is brutal,raw,dirty. >:(
Willem Dafoe is excellent.Chase scene is one of best that scenes ever made.
To live and die in LA was big influence for creators of modern computer games like GTA or True crimes .

Kind of the point of the movie, almost none of the charecters (yes, William L. Petersen's character included) really have a moral compass. He allows himself to become so obsessed in capturing his partner's killer, that he risks his life and job.

This is the first movie I ever saw William H. Petersen in, and I thought he was hot, hot, HOT.

I love the downbeat ending, quite shocking for a mid 1980s action movie.
