just watched To Live and Die in L.A. on channnel 4.

what a great film.

must be one of the best car chase sequences on film!
liked the story and the plot was good with some refreshing and genre busting moments.
funky music that reflects the 80's well and there was some nice cinematography too.

wonder why i never heard of it before...

also, apart from miami vice, was gta vice city based on this film?

It is bit of a cult classic. I too did not know of the film until I saw it for the first time, and was the first film I saw on the old BSB Movie Channel.:smashin:

MGM recently released an SE of this in the US. Definitely more than worth the £7 I paid for it.:smashin:

I think it's great. Never really gets many TV showings, never did too well at the box office either. In many ways I think it was well ahead of it's time

Isn’t that a spoiler?

SPOILER:
I did not see it last night but the William Peterson character got killed and the other guy took over his woman.

Watched it tonight, haven't seen it since 1985.
Surprised by so many well known faces, Jane ( Leaves ) Leeves from Frasier, Dean Stockwell, John Turturro, Robert Downey Snr, John Pankow, Willem Dafoe and of course C.S.I 's William Petersen.
Wang Chung movie score, what ever happened to them ?
William Friedkin car chase guru, this second to French Connection chase though.
If they made it today can't see they would end it like that.

Wow bought the DVD blind and can't see what all the fuss is about, yes the car chase is superb, but it's such an unlikeable film populated entirely by unlikeable characters. I thought that ending was awful and prefered the Alaska alternate ending.
