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. BUT, one usually spray red or black to see if the tank surface is correct OR, if you do old-school metallic or candy apple, cause different effects in different light on the final paint job. In nutshell base/primer, test colour / colour base, metallic flake, coloured clear, clear. See more »

Based on a true story
7 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This movie is based on a true story about a single man who sat his life on stake to go undercover in the dangerous biker community. This touching story show a ordinary man go so deep in that he don't know what is right anymore or which side he is on.He also has to make the choice to betrayl a friend or doing what is right.

In the leading role we find Charlie Sheen as Dan Saxon,we also get to see Michael Madsen in a very cool role as the leader of the biker gang.

The fact that this movie is based on a true story just makes you connect more with the main characters.

At the end I have to say that this is a great movie that shows how far an ordinary man is willing to go.

7 out of 10.
