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.

Miami Connection may not be a good film in any conventional sense, but it's great in countless ways.
March 14, 2013
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.

December 12, 2012
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.

November 8, 2012
Hits the sweet spot between stunning ineptitude, hilariously dated period touchstones, and a touching na´vetÚ 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.
November 7, 2012
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).

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

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.
