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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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

An 'A' because it is a true 'F'

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

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.

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.

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

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