Beyond the Law Reviews
Still, good that I found it. I will say,
3 stars. Good flick.
i liked it but thought it could have been better. i really didn't like the editing and the music - i would have played better from a more realist perspective. also, way too many montages!
i kept thinking of "donnie brasco" while watching this - perhaps because both are about undercover cops infiltrating organized crime groups AND michael madsen is in both! i loved his performance here. everyone else was adequate enough to make it watchable.
If you watch the movie and pay attention to the whole thing, you'll find out that this is a great all around movie in every respect. It has good suspense, action, and best of all great acting. It's one of Charlie Sheen's best movies, if not his best, and one of the best movies to own for anybody if you ask me. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. While I was staying w/relatives in Texas at that time this is about all they watched. It is a great movie for sure, though not the best.
Madsen makes it stand out from just an ordinary biker flick really, he is after all a biker nut job haha or he always seems to play these roles, and he does so well. Sheen is pretty much Sheen like in all his films but he always does this kinda stuff ok and keeps you interested. Nothing special but better than most fluff you might see on the back shelf.
