Beyond The Law – DVD Review

 Beyond The Law

Big Ed and Hair Snipper came over last night and we all watched Beyond The Law with Charlie Sheen and Michael Madsen. The movie is based on a true story about Daniel Saxon. Charlie Sheen plays Saxon; a fearless small town police officer who is hired by the Arizona State Attorney General’s Office to go under cover as a Narc. He doesn’t do too well until Virgil aka Dildo, a goofy motorcycle mechanic, takes him into the the biker community. He then poses as a 1% and infiltrates the Jackals MC! Virgil, played by Leon Rippy, is hilarious. Of course Michael Madsen is great as Blood; the cold blooded President of the Jackals. The movie was pretty good. Very entertaining for a 1992 biker flick and can be had for $5.00 or less at some bargain bins. That’s alot of biker flick for the buck!

Also worth noting is the new book No Angel by Jay Dobyns will be available on Tuesday. No Angel will be the true life account of Jay’s inflitration of the Hells Angels previously covered here at Road Captain USA in the book review of Running with the Devil. Be on the look out for Dobyns promoting his book. I’m not sure how he will do that without the Hells Angels finding him, but he is scheduled to be on the 98 Rock morning show in Baltimore sometime this week.

  1. Cool movie. I think I have seen it a few dozen times. It’s been hollywood-ized but then again, why do you watch flicks anyway! I have not read the book but I have been meaning to check it out.

    As far as the 81 bothering Dobyn? Errr…probably not because 1) His book is keeping them on the radar. They like that. 2) Thomas S Hunter didn’t get whacked so I figure the worst he would get is a good beating….or an 81 lawyer demanding some royalties.

    Thanks for the info!

  2. I meant the other book.

  3. Which book? The Bible or the Harley Davidson Service manual?

  4. Our old nieghbors Marty and Amy rode in the biker pack scene.
    We actually hang out from time to time in the bar where Sheen beats up the ‘Agent’
    It’s now called Roadrunner bar and grill

  5. And we still haven’t seen the movie, yet!

  6. I’ll have to check this out; I have not seen it. Never even heard of it until now.

    Regarding Dobyn, my first thought was that he should spend his money quickly. I would think the 81 would NOT like being on the radar, but since I don’t know any of those guys what do I know? They may not have whacked Hunter S. Thompson, but they did give him a serious stomping – over profits from his book about them.

  7. I saw it about a year ago, it was on “on demand”. Not a bad movie, it was a little cheezy but all in all it was okay.

  8. I think cheeze is the main ingredient in these movies. I like mine with extra cheeze!
    Check out the wedding scene, I love it:

  9. I own the movie. A friend of mine had two copies, and gave me one. It is kind of cheesy, but I’d have to agree with you. All in all a pretty good flick!

  10. Hey just wondering if anyone could help me out. My boyfriend has been searching for years for the sun-glasses that Charlie Sheen wears in the movie (beyond the law) just wondering if anyone would know of where to get them, or order them from….

  11. Sorry, don’t know the answer to that one.
