"...Estevez competently directs the Mitchell's rise and fall..."
Real-life brothers Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez star in this biopic about the Mitchell brothers, two of the pioneers in the porn industry. Brothers Artie (Sheen) and Jim (Estevez) produced some of the 1970s most popular porn features such as BEHIND THE GREEN DOOR and launched the careers of numerous porn stars. Unfortunately, as the brothers became more and more successful and their lives became devoted to the excesses common to the seventies, their animosity towards one another became so great that their relationship ended in murder. A hugely entertaining expose on the porn industry during the seventies on the order of BOOGIE NIGHTS, RATED X is an impressive effort from director Estevez.
