Movie Info

The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida's narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song "Against the Ninja," Mark (kung-fu master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world's smelliest underbelly. It'll

Miami Connection may not be a good film in any conventional sense, but it's great in countless ways.

Absurd, yes, but director Richard Park and his game and guileless cast have the highest of spirits, and the nonsense bubbles like a bottle uncorked.

This is a new low in movies. Miss it at all costs.

Although we saw and enjoyed this film, the hype is where the rubber doesn't meet the road. It's funny, cheesy and poorly done in parts but this is bargain bin stuff, not exactly a challenger for a newly found classic of the genre.

Miami Connection is one of those rare films where the positive energy exuded by its oh-so-amateur cast and crew starts to rub off on you, despite the fact that almost all of the basic tenets of motion-picture storytelling are non-existent.

Ineptly written and badly-acted, it's a terrible movie. But it's also a trip, an amusing and striking acid flashback to the cocaine and Reagan, to pre-Grunge Loverboy-Benatar rock and Linda Hamilton "Terminator" hair, the very definition of a cult film.

It may be late, it may not be the way they imagined it, but 'Miami Connection' is finally, gloriously, having its day.

Nonsensical dialogue, painful acting, lots of strobe lights, and even more fighting -- what more could a person want? Perhaps a beheading? Miami Connection has that, too.

Love it or hate it, it's doubtful you'll ever forget it, and it may just force you to redefine your definition of what constitutes "good" cinema.

Hits the sweet spot between stunning ineptitude, hilariously dated period touchstones, and a touching na´vetÚ that gives it an odd distinction.

Doesn't strike me as particularly hilarious or outrageously inept, just woefully misguided by individuals out to launch a nuclear bomb of positivity with their furious work, only to discover they barely knew how to turn on the camera.

Miami Connection is the greatest movie from 1987 you've never seen (but need to).

Clearly the greatest film ever made -- at least on whatever planet it came from.

The most incredible 25 year old film you'll see in theaters this year.

The. 80s. It's everything you want and none of what you don't. A rock band fighting cocaine ninjas. Yes and Yes.
