B-Movie Miami Connection Pits Ninjas Against Musicians

Looking for a bizarre B-Movie to enjoy this holiday season? You can hardly go wrong with Miami Connection.

Didn't red letter media already do this feature?

I dunno. This sounds intriguing, but I think my top B-movie schlock film will still always be Starcrash, for three reasons:

- It features David Hasselhoff in his "prime", along with all 7.1 liters-displacement of his 80's hair

- It delivers the line "scan them with our computer waves" in earnest seriousness

- It tries so very very hard, and it actually manages one fairly decent stop-motion "laser sword" fight

But hey, you can never have too much B-movie schlock!

I really recommend watching this movie.

It's a distinctly odd one. It manages to be bad in a very different way every 3 minutes.
There are so many different ideas in this movie that it is fresher to watch than say, 'the room'.

It's clearly lovingly made by some very inexperienced people who have little understanding of human relationships, but their heart in the right place.

If "tae kwon-do rock band battles with drug dealing ninja motorgang rockband doesn't grab you, I don't know what will.

I think you just inspired a potential B-movie review in the future!

If you haven't seen "Miami Connection", do whatever you can to see it, it's utterly hysterical. I love "so bad they're good" movies, and it's easily in my top 3.

It's basically got every "awesome 80's" cliché imaginable, just really, really poorly executed. Ninjas, a synth rock-band, cocaine, Miami vice type setting, love affair with martial arts, you name it. Combine it with some of the worst acting and dialogue ever made, not to mention a lead actor who clearly barely speaks a word of English, and you're in for a treat.

Tragically, it was on Netflix instaplay for a while, but seems to have disappeared.
