This movie is the most memorable movie in my existance. In 1985 this played on HBO shortly after its release and it has a special meaning in my life. I was 17 at the time. My girlfriend Debbie and I had a joke that everytime we turned on the TV, "Turk 182" would be on... and it was! It's a great movie, with the same passion of "Taps". Rent or buy it!

Long out of print on VHS, "Turk 182" was a most sought after tape. Its great to see it available again, especially in Widescreen. Tim Hutton is really convincing as a fella who idolizes his older fireman brother. This movie holds more magic today, mainly because of 9/11. This movie has wit, charm, class and enough joy to outlast any chick flick. Yeah, it's a chick flick for guys! Directed by Bob Clark, who also made "Porky's," but don't hold that against this film. A great family film.

This movie is by far my husbands favorite movie! He has watched it numerous times. I can't get him away from the TV set when it is on. I really wish they would put this movie on DVD because it rightly deserves to be there. It is a great movie. It has everything a movie needs action, drama, excitement and any other words I could think of other than GREAT !!! Maybe someday they will put it on DVD and we will get a clearer picture. I definately would buy it in a heartbeat! Once you watch it you will have to watch it over and over and over again. It is a great movie!!!

One of my favourite movies from the 80's and still great to watch now. If you haven't seen it before - A twentysomething guy's older brother gets hurt while risking his life to save a young child. The resultant injury means he can't work and no compensation is available. The younger brother tries to get someone to notice his older siblings plight and goes all the way to the Mayor of New York. However, the mayor insults the injured man and sets in motion the rest of the movie where the younger brother gets revenge for the insult. Kim Catrall is gorgeous as a just out of school social worker and love interest of the younger brother. By the end of the movie you'll be cheering out loud - TURK! TURK! TURK!

Being a graffiti writer myself, I remember watching this movie when i was pretty young. Back then, I always thought people who wrote graffiti were vandals, or criminals, but this movie was one of the first to portray them in a possitive light. The lead character (Timothy Hutton) was made out to be the 'mysterious-hero' taking on city hall, getting his message out for all the city to see. Heroic, daring, all the reasons why i took on graffiti to begin with. This movie is also considered a cult classic to your common movie buffs, graffiti writers, and your underground New Yorker.

An underappreciated effort from the 80's about a young man who takes on city hall on behalf of his injured firefighter brother gets seriously hurt while off duty and trying to save a little girl from a fire. When his compensation claim is repeatedly denied, his oddball little brother decides to take matters into his own hands. With an idea taken from a scandal the mayor is already involved in, he starts a graffiti campaign to humiliate the mayor and signs his work 'Turk 182', his brothers nickname and badge number. Almost immediately, he becomes a media sensation, with the news becoming a worldwide phenomenon. But the mayor has the entire Police force hunting for him, and his chief of security will stop at nothing to catch him. With a little help from some of his friends and a pretty, young social worker assigned to his brothers case, a nobody quickly becomes a hero and fights city hall. But his last attempt to show up the mayor might get him killed. Featuring fine performances all the way around from Timothy Hutton, Robert Urich, Robert Culp, Kim Cattrall, Peter Boyle and Darren McGavin. The version I got on DVD was Italian, but has an English option. A fantastic, highly recommended hidden gem. Family friendly. Very little language and only mild adult situations. The word inspiring comes to mind.

Huge fan of this movie. Was told it wouldn't be made into a DVD long ago and thrilled to finally find it. Arrived in perfect condition and a pleasure to watch again and again.
