It is easy to go down in to hell; night and day the gates of dark death stand wide; but to climb back up again, to retrace one's steps to the open air, there lies the problem, the difficult task. Virgil: The Aeneid

Cop goes undercover to build a case against bikers.
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.
