4.0 out of 5 stars Great Memories. November 17, 2003
By Charlie
Format:VHS Tape
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Hidden Gem From Anchor Bay... May 5, 2005
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Feel Good Movie !!! March 28, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
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!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Still cheering August 30, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Classic For Graffiti May 28, 2001
By Nev1
Format:VHS Tape
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Burned out.
The DVD would not play, I returned it. I was very disappointed as I really did want to watch this movie. It was imported and all the wording on the cover was in Italian (I think).
