Editorial Reviews

Some fires can't be contained. Something is heating up the quiet suburbs of Los Angeles. Local fire-fighting hero Lyle Wilder has a little problem with his neighbors: he wants to kill them. Academy Award(r) Nominee Mare Winningham (1995, Best Supporting Actress, for Georgia) stars as Catherine Braverton, next-door neighbor and mother of two, who is terrorized by Wilder's sick game. The police are on the case but there's not much to go on...and no way to protect the Bravertons from the "hero" that will stop at nothing to extinguish them. UNDER PRESSURE also stars Charles Sheen (Wall Street,Platoon, Major League) and features John Ratzenberger (TV's "Cheers") as police officer Al Calavito.

5.0 out of 5 stars disturbing film February 25, 2007
Firefighter Lyle Wilder (Charlie Sheen) is a hero to his Los Angeles community, but few know that he's harboring a deadly secret: He's slowly turning into a sociopath. His neighbor Catherine Braverton (Mare Winningham) and her two children have clued in to Lyle's altered personality and soon find themselves targeted as his first victims. The only trouble is, they can't seem to convince anyone that Lyle is dangerous.

Format:VHS Tape
I loved the tension that builds up during the movie. Sheen's character is funny, psychotic, and well rounded. The one liners in this movie are a piss. Especially between Sheen and the air conditioner repairman. Unfortunately I saw it on pay-per-view and never taped it. If you like Charlie Sheen as a actor, then you'll like seeing a different side of him in this film.

Not Charlie Sheen's Best Movie But Still Pretty Entertaining. He Plays a Great Role as He Looses His Mind In This Thriller.

4.0 out of 5 stars PRESSURE COOKER April 21, 2004
UNDER PRESSURE is a tense, disturbing film, dominated not by star Charlie Sheen's over the top performance as the demented fireman, but by the down to earth, touching performance by Mare Winningham. Mare portrays the mother of a family that is almost picture perfect; David Andrews plays her adoring husband, and she has two cute if persnickety kids. However, next door neighbor Charlie Sheen seems to have fallen apart since his heroic life-saving. His wife and son have left him, he's on probation from his job, and his wife has put a restraining order on him. Naturally, this leads him to resent the couple next door, and soon Charlie's a bloodthirsty killer. He tortures an unsuspecting refrigerator repairman, and ultimately does in a couple of cops before the final showdown with Mare and Andrews.
This could have been a much better film, had we at least understood what Sheen was like before his heroic deed. We also find out he let the baby's mother die in the fire because he was judgmental enough to condemn her having a child in a crackhouse.
Okay, so without that, we still have a good, solid movie, thanks mainly to Miss Winningham.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ohhhh! Me so sorry! July 19, 2006
This movie, while it may try to be very suspenseful (and actually does succeed in doing so) is an absolute riot! Ever wanted to see what would happen to Charlie Sheen if he ever went without sleep? Well, this is the movie for you! I cannot wait to see this movie again! Very underrated and deserves a hell of a lot more credit than it received.

Charlie Sheens best performance. Ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who would a thought? Charlie can really act! June 27, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
We have enjoyed Charlie Sheen over the years as a good comedian but this role is way different! He is sinister and dangerous. The story reminds me of Pacific Heights in that he's not the kind you would expect to be so scary and dangerous (as Michael Keaton was in Pacific Heights). This one is well worth watching, then watch it again!
