That means you do *not* operate entirely on your own in here. Nobody does. You will pull your weight, or we will make you wish you had. See, your being white don't mean *shit* in here.

"End of My Journey"
Written and Performed by Harry Stewart See more »
This movie surprised me. I am not really big on Charlie Sheen movies, other than Platoon, but this is a truly good movie. Martin Sheen gives a good performance, as does the supporting cast. The setting, while not authentic, is real enough. The dialogue and acting are both excellent and believable. I found I was interested in the characters, and although the ending is predictable, it was fitting. I would recommend this movie to just about anyone, other that the hardcore action enthusiast. Definitely an entertaining film, and one that is quite a bit better than the rating it has received. I wouldn't hesitate to rent it again.
