Movie Reviews

Chris Letempt | Marietta, GA United States | 02/16/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great movie. At the time, Miami Vice was king (still is to me)and this has the same flavor, just with a coming of age storyline. The charachters are kind of like a group from the Magnificent Seven and the Dirty Dozen combined. All in all, a fun action movie with some good messages just under the surface. Biggest thing about this movie is the incredible soundtrack! Used to have the tape, and would kill for a cd."
One of the Best 80's Movies

"This movie was great. I laughed all the way through it. The acting was passionate and heartfelt, not to mention the awesome soundtrack! I love to watch this movie! If anyone should know how I can get a CD Version of the soundtrack, please e mail me. The actor who playes Nestor, James Remar, is great! Where has he been since? He was wonderful in Miami Vice also."
Pure 80's goodness!

"So long.....I have waited so long for this movie to be released on DVD. Last year, I was forced to buy a well used and badly warn VHS copy on Ebay. Forced, you say? Yes, Forced. This movie is goodness. That's all there is to it. I saw it on cable when I was a kid and it quickly became one of my favorite movies of all time.
Please, do yourself a favor and buy this movie. As some people have said above, they really do not make them like this anymore. It's got that special something that modern movies lack...and I'm not just saying that because I'm older now, and that's what older people are supposed to say about things from their chldhood. It's a fact. My praises cannot do this movie justice. You have to watch it to understand. Band of the Hand is hidden and forgotten treasure. Those who call it corny, or say the acting is "bad" simply do not get it. I get it, and I hope you do too."
They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore

"This would be my all time favorite movie. I first saw it when I was 16 and watch it whenever I get the chance. It has a nice Miami Vice feel to it and I always get a kick out of Lawrence Fishburn's hair cut. This movie truly defines what should be done to keep out of control youth in line. It is a shame that this movie didn't get the exposure or credit it deserved, it has a great cast and a fantastic story line. I even bought the soundtrack on cassette. < I probably need Own this movie in your collection, you won't be dissappointed."
