Miami Connection may not be a good film in any conventional sense, but it's great in countless ways.
Hits the sweet spot between stunning ineptitude, hilariously dated period touchstones, and a touching naïveté that gives it an odd distinction.
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.
An 'A' because it is a true 'F'
Anything can be this incompetently made - but this incompetently made and also this openly in love with filmmaking and humanity? That's a much rarer combination indeed.
"[A] gonzo B-movie from the eighties created by Y.K. Kim, a martial arts instructor and inspirational speaker who took his talents to the big screen despite a complete lack of screen charisma or acting talent."
Even now, all these years later, most of the parties involved are pretty clueless about how utterly, incomprehensibly bad their movie is. And that, truth be told, is part of its charm.
Just a dreadful but naively entertaining made in America martial arts film.
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.
Because this movie was meant to be serious, i had to give it a low score. However, if you treat Miami Connection as a comedy, it is awesome! Invite a few mates over and enjoy the awesomeness.
A classic trash b-movie back from the dead. Exciting action and unintentionally funny.
The. 80s. It's everything you want and none of what you don't. A rock band fighting cocaine ninjas. Yes and Yes.
"Only through the elimination of violence can we achieve world peace"
