I first saw this movie on cable and I loved it. Charlie Sheen usually plays the likeable hero or anti-hero. This movie has him playing against type and doing a very convincing job. Sheen plays decorated ex-firefighter Lyle Wilder who besides being a hero also is a very disturbed psychopath. When Wilder's wife and son leave him, it sends him over the edge and he turns his frustrations on the innocent family next door and just about anyone who dares to enter his world. Mare Winningham does a good job playing the neighbor that Sheen's character targets. See this movie if you get the chance.
