Miami Connection Is A Film We Love To Hate

Is Miami Connection for you? If you are a fan of Florida’s Cocaine Cowboys, mixed in with cheesy 1980s obscure cult crime action, and films with lots of martial art scenes created in a comically inept way, then you will love Miami Connection. It is one of those it’s so bad it’s good films we all love to hate, leaving a very special impression in your heart. Okay, so, the film is set in Florida, where the narcotics trade is becoming more and more dominated by a gang of motorcycle ninjas – that in itself is undoubtedly a stereotype for comic effect.

Anyway, they are utterly ruthless and will annihilate anyone who steps on their turf, stopping at nothing to be the big bosses. But here to save the day are the multinational martial arts rock band Dragon Sound. They decide to take the law into their own hands, knowing no one else has the guts or determination to take on these life-destroying, evil drug-dealing ninjas. They become vigilante hunters taking on the entire underworld, kicking and slicing, and justice for all. They keep on going destroying all the drug dealers and low lives until the entire Miami Connection is wiped out. Heroes through and through.

Some Good Comedy Value

This psychotronic, B movie masterpiece is so much fun to watch. It clearly does not take itself too seriously, which is exactly what makes it so much fun to watch and laugh at, or with, who knows. It is so much more than the ordinary bad movie. It takes awful to a whole more level, the epically awful. The acting is wooden, the dialogue is stupid, and the Tae Kwan Do scenes exhibit a severe lack of skill in choreographing technique. What could be better?

Oh yeah, throw in some low budget special effects, for that little bit extra, and add that to the over the top side scenes, a little bit of homo-eroticism, weird gangs of lowlives, and massive overacting by the extras desperate for their moment in the spotlight. Yes, we have it the perfect storm. Your jaw will drop, your eyes will widen, and you will know what you have found something truly spectacular. The film has become far too serious in its comedy. This is a film of its time, and it is awesome for all its badness. If it has tried to be serious, we would not be discussing it now.

A Catchy Soundtrack

This film has been described as a ninja musical! And the music itself commands you to watch it. The awesome and diverse band Dragon Sound has a couple of excellent classic bad 80s pop-sounding tracks that will be going round and round in your head for days after the film has finished. You will simply live the feel-good lyrics of  “Against the Ninja” and “Friends.”

Miami Connection: In Conclusion…

Miami Connection is a must-watch film. According to Florida’s Scott Cooper Miami, “it’s a cocaine cowboys comedy.” It is crazy, fun, over the top, everything that a stuck up film shouldn’t be. Have a little fun, the cast and film crew sure did making it. You will love it for all its terribleness.
