The film is cheesy as hell but it is a ton of fun for someone who remembered how this passed as uber-edgy back in the day.

The action thrives on overkill.

Antagony & Ecstasy

A profoundly ambivalent motion picture... completely upends every convention of its hidebound genre without even seeming to notice that it has done so.

[William] Friedkin creates a jittery atmosphere of adrenaline and corruption and danger...

Engrossing and diverting enough on a moment-to-moment basis but is overtooled.

Combustible Celluloid

Friedkin's 1985 film To Live and Die in L.A. may be one of his very best, though it did not reach the level of acclaim and support of his earlier films.

Friedkin plays it as brutal and cynical as he ever did with The French Connection...

William Friedkin returned to form with this tough, stylish and gutsy crime thriller enhanced by one of the great soundtracks of the 1980s.

Creative Loafing

There's not much substance here, but the film ... showcases a grabber of a car chase that compares favorably with the classic one from Friedkin's The French Connection.

Action set-pieces are brilliantly blocked and shot, but never to the detriment of the unnerving unspooling of the universally unsavory cast of characters.

Visceral just often enough to allay the infuriatingly generic shortcuts Friedkin and co. take to a finale that throws the film triumphantly off its Hollywood-conventional axis

On its own terms, it's a considerable success, though it's a film that sacrifices everything in the interests of style.
