Roy and Bo leave their small town the weekend after graduation for a short road trip to LA. Soon, they find themselves lashing out and leaving a trail of bodies behind them. The violence escalates throughout.
The nametag of the MP behind the reception desk at the psychiatric ward McKinney is sent to after his trial reads "Estevez" - Martin Sheen's original last name, and the last name of his son, Ramon, who plays Pfc. Gessner. See more »
The ribbons [over left pocket] of everyone are in the wrong order. No service patch on right shoulder of the JAG officer but has Korean War and United Nation ribbons. Warriors, Inc. and Capt. Dale USMC Ret'd should know better. See more »

Perhaps, it was my having seen this movie with a bunch of my Army buddies - while in the Army. Or maybe, being a Larry/Laurence Fishburne FANATIC! It could be that I saw this with my heart open and my mind closed...nah, none of the above reasons are why this movie ranks as one of my all-time favorites. It is the camaraderie and class of the relationship that Martin Sheen created with his main characters.
Never have I seen a movie with such honesty and triumph. Truly, I saw the ending before it came...but I didn't care. Isn't that what a GOOD director will do - make you appreciate the movie and not focus on what the end result will be.
The "End of My Journey" rips through me every time I hear it. A great film study on what true friendship is when race is not factored into the equation. 9/10 - And, I know flicks!
