      Steve D The same film you have seen a million times. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/03/23 Full Review Audience Member The film itself tells quite a good story...Sheen and Sweeney work well...just don't think it's aged too well...needed bigger action scenes Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member First, D.B Sweeey is terrible in this role. Second, this is filmed more like 16 candles than a cop and robber movie. Third, the rookie cop who gets too enthralled with the bad boy criminal was old even in 2003. Fourth, I lived in Los Angeles in 2003, and there were not that many Porsche around to occupy so many specialized car theft rings. It is a very dated, very tired, very pigeon holed movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review william s D.B. and Charlie playing dress up....aint that sweet. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Suspenseful and gripping, No Man's Land is an 80's gem that delivers great performances by Charlie Sheen, D. B. Sweeney and Randy Quaid; as well as also teaching a valuable life lesson. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member No Man's Land is almost like a 80's version of The Fast And The Furious, very much so cause this film was actually an inspiration for it. Benjy Taylor is a cop and skilled car mechanic who uses these both to his advantage to go undercover at a garage that steals and fixes up Porsches, getting further into the business with Ted Varrick played by Charlie Sheen as they become close partners in crime, but how far can their friendship and secrets go before things go terribly wrong? The film is great cause it has some good car chases while also focusing on the details and caution of performing the thefts in such business. It had a realistic feel in other words, minus the sort of over-the-top car chases, but the film is often thrilling as you're sitting there just wondering where the screw will turn loose and lead to the downfall of things. It does end on an abrupt note, but boy does the conclusion pay off as it ends off how you would hope for it to be, and not pretty either. No Man's Land is worth a watch.
