Trivia

Charlie Sheen plays the ringleader of a Los Angeles auto-theft cartel. In The Rookie (1990), he plays an L.A. cop on the trail of a chop-shop ring. See more »

Goofs

The car chase scene between the silver Porsche and the blue Camaro contains many inconsistencies. The Porsche's left rear passenger window disappears and reappears between shots before the scene where the Camaro passenger destroys it with a shotgun. Before the climax of the chase, the Camaro's front end is damaged, but there are no scenes showing how it got damaged during the scene. See more »

Slow burner that gets somewhat better as it goes along ....
24 July 2019 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

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
