The ribbons [over left pocket] of everyone are in the wrong order. No service patch on right shoulder of the JAG officer but has Korean War and United Nation ribbons. Warriors, Inc. and Capt. Dale USMC Ret'd should know better. See more »

an unforgettable movie with a fantastic story and great acting!
4 January 1999 | by (Doraville, Georgia, USA) – See all my reviews

More than any of his other movies that I have seen (even "Wall Street" and "Platoon"), "Cadence" makes me hope that Charlie Sheen will not throw away his talent. He does a remarkable job in this movie, which is even more impressive because everyone else does a terrific job too! (Martin Sheen, Laurence Fishburne, Michael Beach...) This movie didn't last long in the theaters, which is a real shame, because too many people missed it! It has a timeless, touching message of brotherhood, acceptance and friendship, which it conveys through an interesting story and very engaging characters. Overall, it's serious, and even disturbing at times, but it has enough humor and light moments to give you hope and a good feeling at the end. The dream about being white and the prison-yard basketball game are two wonderful and memorable scenes, and you never will hear the song "Chain Gang" quite the same way again! I love this movie! I hope you will, too!
