this is one movie that doesn't hold back in its depiction of a
racist,ignorant pig who also happens to be a psychopath.this movie is
not for the faint of heart.Charles Sheen puts in very convincing
performance as a firefighter named Lyle Wilder, who in public is a hero
but in reality is is a very unhinged deranged nut case with serious
mental short,he's a loon,and a deadly one at that.Mare
Winningham plays the mother of the family that is lucky enough to be
his neighbour.i don't recall this movie being in theatres,but it's not
listed as being straight to video.anyway,Winningham is good in her role
and plays her character as very understated. i have to make special
mention of two other actors in this movie.that would be John
Ratzenberger (Cliff,from "Cheers" fame) and Dawn Lewis (Jaleesa from
the sitcom "A Different World)who play the two police officers
who end up dealing with Wilder(Sheen).both were very impressive in
fairly small roles.i though they were both standouts.i had never seen
either in a serious role,and they seemed to fit their characters like a
glove.the movie itself is tense, to say the least and you are really
waiting for the pressure to burst and the psycho to come completely
unraveled,which he my mind,this is a pretty good movie.for
me,"Bad Day on the Block" AKA "Under pressure is an 8/10

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.

Under Pressure is about a fireman gone wacko. After being dumped by his wife and child, Lyle ( the neighbor from hell ) gets ticked off by anything he can't control. Mainly Mare Winningham and her two bratty children. It's obvious that the incredibly sweaty Lyle is insane the moment we lay eyes on him. The way he stalks around his neighbors' yards can only mean one thing: something's about to hit the fan. And it does.
When the bratty son from next door ruins Lyle's window he pays the family a very scary visit. This segment made no sense whatsoever. We were all geared up to see real action when Sheen grabs the knife and peddles it in front of the boy's face. But the supposed-frightening scene turns silly. Lyle just leaves claiming he has to check his mail. It was a cheap trick to get the audience's mouth watering. Later that night Lyle sneaks into their home and holds them hostage with a gun. He wants to play Russian Roulette. How original!
Okay this movie has some chilling moments. It's not boring but at times silly. The way the neighbors act towards Lyle isn't realistic at all. Anyone else would have called the cops the moment he stomped into their house. Just because he leaves on his own the first time made it all right? Please. The father was the most pitiful role in the film. He didn't do anything but get the heck beaten out of him. This film is lame to the T. Charlie Sheen does a decent job but hits the planet of overacting big time. Mare Winningham is okay. The kids were cute and cuddly. Minor characters like Dawnn Lewis and Cliff from Cheers moved the story along. This movie was too short for my taste. I would have liked to see the reason behind Lyle's insanity. I couldn't buy that he went crazy just because his wife took his son away. That didn't do it for me.
