Bret Michaels' movies


Recommended Posts

I was flipping thru a stack of Metal Edge back issues from the late 90s this past weekend, and noticed that for a while (circa 98-99) they did a lot of coverage/hype about Bret (Poison) Michaels' short lived foray into independent filmmaking. Bret formed a production company with his Hollywood pal Charlie Sheen (imaginatively named Sheen/Michaels Entertainment) during this period, and he wrote and starred in a prison drama called "A Letter From Death Row" then directed his pal Charlie in a cop movie called "No Code of Conduct" before getting back to music full time.

 

Has anyone ever seen either movie? When these mags were current I remember thinking "Hmm, sounds interesting, I'll keep an eye out for 'em at the video store," but if memory serves I never saw either one of them turn up at my local Blockbuster; nor have I ever seen either one on cable to the best of my knowledge. Were these films so bad that Bret buried them never to be seen again??

 

Just idle curiosity...

I saw No Code of Conduct on TNT years ago.

It had both Charlie and Martin Sheen if memory serves and I believe it had that other actor that is now the boss of kitchen stadium on Iron Chef America but I could be wrong. From what I remember it was an above average b level movie.

 

I don't think Letter from Death Row has ever been on TV.

Heck I don't even know if it was ever released on DVD or even VHS back in the day.

I have the soundtrack to Death Row, which is disappointingly rather techno based :s

 

however, it has an awesome track on it called "I'd Die For You" havent heard it in awhile but i used to love it :tumbsup:

 

thats all i know :anon:

 

wait for Geoff or Colin, theyll know :D

I remember at the time of these I was really hopeful of seeing them, but yeah, I never saw any details on the release of either film. Obviously if Wes has seen one it was released, but as for 'A letter from death row', I doubt it ever got a release.

LFDR definitely got released.

Apparently "Letter From Death Row" videos have become pricey collectibles! Check out the prices for VHS copies!! :yikes:

Of course, after reading some of the reviews of it on IMDB, I doubt anyone would wanna spend that kinda coin on it:

"No Code of Conduct" doesn't fare much better with the IMDB crowd...

Wes is right, by the way, the guy who plays the "Chairman's" nephew on "Iron Chef America" does indeed co-star in "No Code." ... wonder if he still lists that one on his resume? :blink:

 

"No Code of Conduct" must've gotten a wider release than "Death Row," cuz as you can see video copies are plentiful and cheap as hell: http://www.amazon.com/s/?url=search-alias%...;tag=imdb-adbox

A buddy of mine purchased the LFDR video back in the day. Watched it back then and again about 5 or 6 years later when he showed it to another friend.

 

To say that I can remember more than 2 or 3 things (not including the ending), especially after 2 viewings, probably means that it was one of the more unremarkable pieces of shlock that exists on celluloid.
