Firstly read the US more positive reviews of this movie , for this is great slice of 70s fun and an entertaining movie about how 2 brothers end up making it big in porn . yes it has been done many times before [ boogie nights is ofcourse far better as is People vs Larry Flynt ] but it is always enjoyable to see another fall from glory story . The sets may be a little wooden and its all a little showtime channel but that not to say that I wasnt hooked [ even Sheen and Estevez were good although their hair wasnt] . If you are a fan of this era and Marilyn Chambers and all the other characters yes this is a great treat for you . And you also get to see that guy who played John Locke in Lost in another great part . A forgotten gem , a guilty pleasure . I wonder if it got buried because of its subject matter and also as its quite graphic . Cheap night in . In a year where we have biopics of Paul Raymond and Linda Lovelace coming out , watch this first .

If you decide to watch Rated X then the first thing you must do is not compare it to Boogie Nights. There are a couple of reasons for this: 1. Boogie Nights is a better film than Rated X and 2. Rated X is a very different movie, a sort of budget version of Boogie. But that's no bad thing because Rated X is a very well acted and directed movie with a dark side.

Real life brothers Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez play San Francisco porn king brothers Art and Jim Mitchell who rise to fame and fortune through the porn industry through the 70's. Things are going like a wet dream when but as the fame takes control they loose their way with each other through drink and drugs resulting in a very twisted and devastating end.

I've always rated Charlie Sheen and have been a fan for 25 years. I think he is an excellent actor, at times underrated, and has a wide range of talents. Obviously he best acting was in Platoon and Wall Street which I firmly believe are Oscar worthy performances. Then we have his stand out comedy roles with Major League, Hot Shots and the very funny and charming Two And A Half Men. He has said himself that he only really likes 7 or 8 of his films but I think some of the less popular films like The Rookie and Terminal Velocity are damn good.

And Sheen's performance is no different in Rated X. Consistant and probably a version of his own dark side with the issues his charecter, Art goes through. He has moments of pure rage and madness that reminded me of the kind of thing Robert DeNiro does very well.

Given the fact Rated X is about sex and porn there is not that much nudity at all I'm pleased to say because it could have been gratuitous but the porn part of the story sort of sits in the back ground.

Emilio Estavez directed this, but one wonders why. It doesn't take a genius to realize that a movie about two porn movie directors is not going to win any Academy Awards. What was Emilio thinking? You can play it as tragedy. You certainly can't make heroes of these guys. I guess what he was thinking was this was a part of America from the sixties to the nineties in the twentieth century--this was the reality and let's tell the truth. but somebody else might say, why bother?

Most critics and viewers would call this a prize turkey, but...but is there some redeeming social value? Charlie Sheen and Estavez star as the brothers Mitchell, two entrepreneurial guys who stumble from the free love scene of the sixties in San Francisco to the cash cow of the first widely distributed porn movies, including the infamous "Behind the Green Door." Maybe there is a kind of free speech angle here, with the [...] boys fighting the good fight against censorship and Big Brother. On the other hand, there is a didactic tale here about how success corrupts and how [...], drugs and rock and roll--forget the rock and roll; this is almost pure [...] and drugs--how [...] and drugs may lead you to make a movie called "Sodom and Gomorrah" which may suggest that you ought to be starring it in.

Charlie Sheen is very good and so is Estavez. His direction is also not bad. The movie moves right along and the degeneration of the brothers is well expressed. Megan Ward had a chance in a supporting role here, but she failed miserably, possibly because how could she feel any connection with a role that made her the quasi-tolerant, quasi-suffering wife of a man who makes his living pandering to lust (and indulging his own) while smoking, drinking and snorting anything he can get his hands on?
