Mini-Review - "Miami Connection" (1987)
I cannot wait for the Rifftrax of this one.
In case you have never heard of this gem, let me give you a brief description - The film does not actually take place in Miami but Orlando, it follows a rock band named Dragon Force, a bunch of orphaned teenagers that all know Tae Kwon Do, except they're not orphaned since at least two still have their fathers, and they play a shady club owned by another master of Tae Kwon Do. A rival band is upset they can't play at this club, always screaming that it is bullshit even after Dragon Force gives logical explanations, and they end up calling in a gang of motorcycle ninjas to take down Dragon Force once and for all. Oh, and roughly 45 percent of the movie is the band performing songs about friendship and kissing ninjas.
"Miami Connection" does not take itself seriously, and neither should you. One of the better "so bad, it is good" movies I have seen in a while. Get a couple of friends and some beers, sit back and enjoy the stupidity.
Final Grade: C+
