Band of the Hand -- Michael Mann produced 80's crime movie -- 1/10/17




The artwork is terrible

They should have used the below artwork from the old VHS days:




Synopsis:
Welcome to the jungle, Miami-style, where fast cars, dirty deals, hot women, and acid-washed jeans
all come with the turf. While serving time in a grueling rehab program in Florida's Everglades, five
young felons bond together to form an unlikely union. When they return to Miami's dangerous
ghetto, the five former criminals wage a lethal war on the drug kingpins who rule the underworld of
murder and mayhem. BAND OF THE HAND goes for the jugular, never once loosening its grip until
its heart-stopping climax!

The MSRP is only 9.98, so it should sell for a few dollars cheaper. I liked this movie. It's a underrated Michael Mann Miami 80's crime movie with a pretty good soundtrack from what I recall. Plus, it has a very young Lauren Holly.

It's currently available for pre-order on Amazon

The widescreen DVD-R was the first DVD I reviewed here, this should look great on Blu-Ray. Very 80s look to all of it. I think the soundtrack album was the most recent cassette tape I've listened to.

Love that circular logo at the bottom of the ad that you can hardly see here- it says "Home Video" in the middle with "Watch What You Want, When You Want" around the outside. Truer words were never spoken.
