No Man’s Land is a stylish thriller about a lower-class rookie cop becoming caught up in the fast-lane high life of the filthy rich car thief he’s assigned to nail.

Charlie Sheen and D.B. Sweeney are both extremely effective as two young men, barely into their 20s, whose diametrically opposed backgrounds make for a dynamic and ultimately deadly relationship.

Sweeney is assigned by boss Randy Quaid to take a job at a Porsche garage that doubles as a ‘chop shop,’ where stolen cars are broken up and reassembled as untraceable new vehicles. Quaid suspects the wealthy owner, Sheen, of having killed another policeman, and Sweeney, despite his total inexperience, is supposed to get the goods on him.

A little joyriding and partying with the handsome, crafty Sheen easily seduces Sweeney into taking a softer view of illegal activity. He comes to like Sheen a lot and, furthermore, gets sexually involved with the latter’s beautiful sister (Lara Harris).

Scenarist Dick Wolf is a vet of both Hill Street Blues and Miami Vice and both influences turn up here, as he has carefully worked out the script to offer opportunities for the character nuances of the first show and the flash of the second.
