Trivia

At 1:28:47 you can clearly see that bloods pistol has not ejected the round completely after shooting the convenience store attendant. See more »

Goofs

In the bike construction montage, Dan lays down red paint on a tank. There are no red tanks anywhere on either his, or Virgil's bikes, or in the shop that we see. Since the montage was supposed to be about building Dan's bike, this makes no sense. See more »

Quotes

Awesome Movie
25 January 2005 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is a keeper. I've had it in my personal collection for years now, and usually watch it every year or two. Charlie Sheen does a good job in this movie. The whole biker vs cop plot is good. If you have a couple hours to spend without interruption, definitely watch this movie. All of the actors in this movie do a very good job and are all very believable characters. This movie would be good action flick for the boys just to hang out and watch over a few cold ones. The ladies would enjoy this flick too though for its awesome action scenes."Beyond the Law" will keep you on the edge of your seat for quite a while. This movie definitely deserves more recognition. Enjoy!!
