      steve d its heart is in the right place, but it still doesn't work. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is soooooooo amazing. So few people know about it. Charlie Sheen's best film. The really sad thing is that Harry "Sweet" Stewart never got noticed. His singing was a big part of the movie with End Of My Journey. A actor who was superb as well. Sadly ended up homeless. I saw this when I was very young and have watched it many times since wearing out a recorded vhs tape and owning the subpar dvd import as you can't find a copy in the states. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Cadence is a movie that I revisit as often as I can. It is not a particularly well-made movie but it meant a lot to me when I first watched it. I had my first warehouse job and my first job at which I was in the minority and I had the pleasure to get to know and learn from my own personal soul patrol. I met a guy named Terrell who helped me to really understand and appreciate racial diversity beyond what I had known in the previous years of my life growing up in a primarily white school district and neighborhood. In the film Charlie Sheen is imprisoned with five black prisoners including a great performance by Lawrence Fishburne, all under the control of a racist Master Sargent Otis McKinney played by his father Martin Sheen. The film highlighted the effects that racists of a previous generation really try to force their thoughts down onto the next generation. Your results may greatly vary from mine but it has a place in my heart. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review william s One of Sheen's best kept secrets is this gem of a tiny indie before he lost his mind....very,very well acted. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Thought this movie was pretty good when I saw it. Decent drama. Chain gang song stuck to my brain for a long time. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member This is one of my all-time favorite movies ever, that I saw one night by chance on HBO years ago. LOVE IT!!!

      Time Out There's no real feel for period (the mid-'60s), and that dull Sheen psychodrama doesn't go away. Feb 9, 2006 Full Review Janet Maslin New York Times There is no indication that Mr. Sheen ever yelled "Cut!" when he had a chance to send one of his actors over the top. Rated: 1.5/4 May 20, 2003 Full Review Desson Thomson Washington Post Emotions in this film operate on a made-for-TV level; they don't engage you. Jan 1, 2000 Full Review David Cornelius The cast builds genuine characters out of stock situations. Rated: 3/5 Feb 27, 2007 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily Rated: 3/5 Oct 9, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 1/5 Jun 11, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews
