"The most bizarre things to come out of the 1980’s VHS era" - Obscuro Films

“Hey, why not just make a film noir about a woman-hating private dick, and have 8-year-olds play all the parts? The result was Hawk Jones, and I don’t know why they don’t make more movies like this anymore. “ -FilmDrunk

It's brilliant.” - strangekidsclub

He's tough, he's a armed and he's six years old (going on seven). He's Hawk Jones, the city's most bad-ass cop, and he's got a ton of criminal butt to kick before he goes to bed at eight.

An 80s action film about drugs, loose women, and a killer cyborg assassin in which every actor happens to be under ten years old. Hawk Jones is a genuine genre effort without an adult in sight, so the cast is allowed to drive cars, fight and swear up a storm in this jaw dropping straight faced bullet riddled romp.

Sure, the kids Kung Fu skills might be a little sloppy, but they're acting is so hilariously earnest that it's impossible not to have your pants charmed off.

It must have been difficult to get two sugar addled eight-year-olds to have a sword fight in a mansion, but the Lowry brothers pull it off, and you'd be an adult fool to miss out the chance to experience it on the big screen!

An epic all-child-cast cop thriller in the tradition of Bugsy Malone by way of Lethal Weapon.
