* {{Improv}}: A lot of the dialogue is obviously improvised or at best loosely scripted. The HamToHamCombat between the rival band and the club owner is obviously not scripted, with each character blurting repetitive dialogue on top of the other's.
* ImprovisedWeapon: Various characters grab sticks and barrels to throw and whack each other with. Jim puzzlingly carries a short piece of PVC pipe to the rescue of Tom, even though he would have had plenty of time to pack a better weapon.

* PrettyInMink: One way to show the band is doing well are the nice clothes Jane has, such as her gray rabbit fur jacket she wears in the scene where the heroes are challenged by another gang.

* PrettyInMink: One way to show the band is doing well are the nice clothes Jane has, such as her gray rabbit fur jacket she wears in (in the scene where the heroes are challenged by another gang.gang) over her evening dress after the group had attended... something not shown, but with the way they all were dressed it was clearly something fancy.

* EasilyForgiven: When John tries to tell Jane about having to kill her brother, she literally talks over him about how she understands what happened.



* PipePain: Some characters use pipes as weapons. Absurdly ''sharp'' pipes, apparently.



* {{Overcrank}}: Intended to make the martial arts moves more impressive, it often just highlights the amateurish choreography.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Overcrank}}: Many moves do both this and slow motion in the same shot.


Added DiffLines:

** Other characters use pipes as weapons, which act like {{Absurdly Sharp Blade}}s.

-->-- '''"Friends" by Dragon Sound'''

'' '''Miami Connection''' '' is a [[MartialArtsMovie martial arts film]] produced in 1987. It was the brainchild of director Richard Park and writer/producer/star Grandmaster Y.K. Kim (a Korean taekwondo expert and motivational speaker), who just wanted to make "a good film about Taekwondo" featuring authentic martial arts. Described by critics as a "cocaine-war- rock-ninja- motorcycle-gang film, with aspirations of being an action-adventure musical", ''Miami Connection'' was savaged during its initial run but enjoyed success as a cult film when it was restored and re-released in 2012 by Drafthouse Films.
