Drafthouse Films gives Miami Connection back to the world


Drafthouse Films has gotten their hands on the 1987 cult martial arts movie Miami Connection, written, directed, and starring 9th degree black belt Grandmaster Y.K. Kim. It'll be released theatrically and on video later this year, but will make a grand reappearance at the upcoming New York Asian Film Festival. You know we will be there, and you know we will watch this film.

Check out a clip of Miami Connection above, featuring a John Oates look-alike. Here is the (greatest) synopsis (in the history of Florida martial arts movies):

The year is 1987. Motorcycle ninjas tighten their grip on Florida's narcotics trade, viciously annihilating anyone who dares move in on their turf. Multi-national martial arts rock band Dragon Sound have had enough, and embark on a roundhouse wreck-wave of crime-crushing justice. When not chasing beach bunnies or performing their hit song "Against the Ninja," Mark (kung-fu master/inspirational speaker Y.K. Kim) and the boys are kicking and chopping at the drug world's smelliest underbelly. It'll take every ounce of their blood and courage, but Dragon Sound can't stop until they've completely destroyed the dealers, the drunk bikers, the kill-crazy ninjas, the middle-aged thugs, the "stupid cocaine"...and the entire MIAMI CONNECTION!!!
