There's no real feel for period (the mid-'60s), and that dull Sheen psychodrama doesn't go away.
There is no indication that Mr. Sheen ever yelled "Cut!" when he had a chance to send one of his actors over the top.
Emotions in this film operate on a made-for-TV level; they don't engage you.
A sluggish comedy of race relations from the sappy Sheens, it's instant fodder for In Living Color's satirical Wayans.
The cast builds genuine characters out of stock situations.
A fine look at the racial differences of the armed forces of that era.
Father and Son give the performances of their careers
Not half-bad military drama.
Laurence Fishburne is a capable performer, but he's not asked to do much here. On the other hand, Charlie Sheen is unconvincing as his character experiences crises and moral dilemmas galore.
Cadence is a more modest film that never seems to reach very high, settling for superficial characterizations and an overly familiar series of circumstances.
I finally saw "Cadence" while I was visiting my family in Texas awhile back and it was a great movie. Charlie Sheen has to go to military camp for 90 days after hitting a cop. Martin Sheen plays the role of the sergeant at the base. "Cadence" features one of both Charlie's and Martin Sheen's best performances in my opinion. Charlie Sheen must survive the 90 days in the camp in order to get out alive. He has to go to Vietnam afterwards. This movie will keep you interested while you watch to see if Franklin Bean, (Charlie Sheen), can learn to get along with his black roomates and how he will put up with the sergeant, (Martin Sheen), while he's there.
You will remember "Cadence" for the performances that all the actors put on and some of the other sequences such as getting the windmill to work. But you'll remember it even more for the song "End of My Journey" after you hear it at the end of the movie. There's no doubt that it's the best Christian song I've ever heard. If you like movies that deal with the Army, you'll like "Cadence." In my opinion, it's one of the best movies of the decade and one movie you can't miss. NOTE: That was my Amazon review from the year 2000. Yet another rather overlooked great by Sheen, along with The Chase and to a lesser extent, Beyond The Law.
Well-meant film about the evils of racism is skewed by director-star Martin Sheen's overly sympathetic portrait of a prejudiced stockade commander who attempts to use newcomer Charlie Sheen to spy on his cell mates, all of whom are black. More notable for good intentions than dramatic power.
