Green star means this is Stranger-recommended  

1988 | 90 minutes | Rated R

In 1987, Y. K. Kim, a self-described "modern philosopher, motivational speaker, and world-renowned evangelist of the martial arts," directed a film. The plot—involving a tae kwon do troupe that moonlights as a bouncy pop band that's challenged by a gang of jealous drug-dealing bikers—is insane. The dialogue, crafted with the ear of an ESL television addict, is rudimentary in the extreme. Hilariously bad fight scene follows hilariously bad fight scene. There is much random toplessness and a handful of hyuk-worthy scenes of bloody violence. It is terrible. But out of this tragic mess of failure and incompetence, a distinctly sweet spirit emerges. Its source is the cumulative gameness and good sportsmanship of everyone involved in Miami Connection, which is drenched in a goofy joy that is contagious. (DAVID SCHMADER)

Director: Y.K. Kim and Woo-sang Park
Cast: Y.K. Kim, Vincent Hirsch, William Ergle, Maurice Smith, Angelo Janotti, Kathy Collier, Joseph Diamand and Woo-sang Park
