During the chase scene, the same shot (of Charlie Sheen's character reacting to what he has seen out the back window) is used in two places. First, when the first car chasing them slams into a pick up truck. Second, when the Trans Am crashes through the Pepsi truck. See more »

It's like an ICBM. You're never gonna use the fucker, but you sleep better at night knowing that you have one.

UK cinema and video versions were cut by 1m 5 secs by the BBFC to remove shots of a car being broken into and hot-wired. The cuts were waived in the 2005 MGM DVD. See more »
Slow burner that gets somewhat better as it goes along ....
Randy Quaid in a rare dramatic role, and M. Emmett Walsh in a really minor role are of interest. Charlie Sheen is the bad guy for a change. The movie itself is very lethargic, with occasional car action waking things up. There is no nudity and a low body count. I can't see this as much more than a television movie of the week. The love interest is simply like an add on. The Porches are fine and everything, but as fast as the cars are, the plot seems to crawl, especially in the beginning. None of the characters are likable, and some are severely underdeveloped. Honestly, you want car chases, there are better choices. The best way I can describe "No Man's Land" would be underwhelming. It's watchable, but just barely. .................................. MERK
