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!!
the other person that reviewed this said it was a guy movie. i don't
think this is so, the story is really deep and emotional as far as
sheens character does, madsen is his usual self, bad-ass lol its one of
those movies that really gets to you and takes you through the emotions
of sheens character, for instance when he thinks things are getting
good u sit up and take notice of how good things are, then things turn
crappy and u really feel it, i agree with the other review tho that
Charlie sheen should have definitely won some award for this.. he plays
the part so well, i see him as a comedian but in this movie its
strictly serious and its probably his best movie ever
I would just like to say that Beyond the Law is in my opinion Charlie Sheens best movie. I have watched this numerous times, and coming from that type of Lifestyle, all I can say is take a long hard look, this movie is as real as it gets. I would also like to say that believe me, there are short bikers out there and they can kick butt right along with the rest of them. Its a shame that Sheen didn't get the recognition that he should of for this movie. It shows that he can be a dramatic actor right along with the best of them. He played the role of Dan Saxon better than anyone could, and I take my hat off to him. This is a movie that I own and truly appreciate.
And before he lost it. But, this is by far the most realistic biker movie I've ever seen. Charlie plays a real life undercover cop with issues that infiltrates a top gang run very effectively by Michael Madsen, minus the obligitory hair and tatts. Charlie's descent into a self-imposed hell is a real treat for fans. Makes you wonder where all that passion went? 9/10

I also felt this was a great story and very underrated. At the time, it
was an A- movie and never appeared in our local theaters. My first
experience with it was on video. I've watched it several times since
then, in various venues, and think it's some of Charlie Sheen's finest
work. It is unfortunate that he did not win any awards for his work int
his film. His real life character seems to parallel the life of the
character in the story, which may be why he was able to do such a fine
job with it.
Another interesting note about this story, as we are told at the end (And this is not really a serious spoiler)is that the real Dan Saxon appears as an extra in the movie, and the whole story is true. More than 200 people were arrested as a result of this Officer's work.
The real Dan Saxon lives in Northern California with the girl he fell in love with during the story.
Without a doubt one of the best movies ever transposed from a true story. The cast was awesome. The locations were right on, and the storyline and ending was extremely well played out. I can't remember the last time Charlie Sheen was in top form as he was in this film. The "bikers" were true to form and the law enforcement portrayals were even realistic. All I can say is hats off to the real Dan Saxon for even attempting such a feat as was portrayed in the film. He is a true credit to law enforcement and the war on drugs. Also hats off to the entire cast, crew, and extras that made this very awesome movie a success. I just bought the DVD and can't wait to watch it again.
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.
This movie is a bit like the over the top Brian Bosworth film "Stone Cold". The main difference is that this one is based on a true story and is more serious fare than that film. Charlie Sheen does a surprisingly good job in the lead role, a guy who goes deep undercover to try and infiltrate a biker gang. He does so very well as he makes his motorcycle from scratch which using one already assembled and retrieved from a police lock up has nearly deadly consequences for a man who did not go quite as undercover as Charlie's character. Also in this one is Michael Madsen, who plays the biker leader very well. He has the aura of a biker dude, something Lance Henrickson did not have in "Stone Cold". There is a bit of action in this one, but this film is primarily a drama and it is a good movie too. "Stone Cold" was a fun movie to watch, but just not the same caliber as this movie. No, this one is the superior film on almost level, it is a bit surprising to see Charlie Sheen pull off a biker dude, but he does so very well. So all in all a good undercover cop drama.
Charlie Sheen plays Dan Saxon, a small town deputy who is fired and
recruited by the Arizona Attorney General's office, Special
Investigation Division (SID) to go undercover to gather evidence of
illegal activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs. At first he is a
complete failure until he meets Virgil, a Harley mechanic who helps him
transform himself into a biker. Dan Saxon takes on the aka of SID and
infiltrates the Jackals, the local OMG.
No film would be complete without a love interest and Sid finds it in Renee Jason, a photo journalist who is writing a book on OMGs. She's hot and they hook up.
Throughout the film, Saxon struggles to maintain his identity as he becomes more immersed in his undercover operation.
I rented this movie then immediately went out and bought it. It has great scenes and a great plot (as it is based on a true story). I wasn't a Charlie Sheen fan before this movie, but I am now. Some corny lines and a little over-acting, but the rumble of Harleys and a sound track by Asphalt Ballet make up for any imperfections.
Oh yeah. SID doesn't urinate on his jacket, Virgil does after he says SID is "too clean to be a biker." A must see.

See this movie 7 years ago, and I still loving' these... I don't remember another biker's movie (and I have seen a lot) with these story quality. Started follow the Sheen's career thanks to this film. Love Harley motorcycles, and all surround its world. Correctme if I'm wrong, the real Dan Saxon is the FBI agent who's kicking off(the fiction) Dan Saxon in the San Carlos ride... -Is he???? If not, -Big mistake !!! -Dont'you think? I don't know why, but when I feel sad, I see this movie, over and over again. I heard that Mr. Sheen had drugs troubles at the time of the making of this movie. This must to be why he interpreted Dan Saxon so real... That's right, this movie is about the one men fighting against himself. He wanted be like Blood, but he wasn't, instead, he was a law-servant. Best regards to everything who loves this movie. I wish to get the soundtrack album of the movie... and never founded it.
