5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best 80's Movies 17 Feb 2000
By "montapena" - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure 80's goodness! 18 May 2003
By Jonathan Helig - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars They Don't Make Them Like This Anymore 26 Dec 2002
By Ronald Matusky - Published on
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Band of the Hand 22 Feb 2003
By Virgil T Brooks - Published on
Let me start by saying I love this movie. I first saw this film in the theatres during it's original theatrical release. I have this film on vhs. I have been waiting for the past few years for this film to be released on DVD. Finally it has arrived. I wish they had preserved the original theatrical aspect (widescreen), but at least they remastered the audio and video. The film itself stands as one of the best and most entertaining action films of the 1980's. This largely overlooked classic embodies the look, the feel and the attitude of 80's cool and features the most memorable soundtrack of this era. The story centers around a group of juvenile delinquents who have committed serious crimes and are given one last chance at rehabilitation.
This last ditch effort begins in the Florida Everglades and culminates in the "program" relocating to Miami. Once in Miami the ever reforming juveniles have to learn to work together, resist the temptation of their former lives and also confront the harsh realities of their past. Each character undergoes personal growth and ultimately they decide on their own to wage war on the local ... cartel and the action really heats up. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes action movies with humor and substance. Band of the Hand has excitement and flair to spare, considerably more than the standard fare.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Movie from the Big '80s 6 July 2012
By Brads2sense - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This was one of the zeitgeist movies of the 80s. Most everyone in West Bloomfield and Birmingham, Michigan were trying to don the Miami Vice look. I still remember seeing this for the first time at 12 Oaks mall theater as a high schooler. Stephen Lang is a very flexible actor and we are introduced to Larry Fishburn (besides Apocolypse Now). Very period piece and great premise.

PS a few months ago, the only way to get this DVD was through private sellers on Amazon who wanted $100+ dollars for it! Well now its for sale for a real price! Screw you, greedy s.o.b.s!!
