1.5/4 

James 'Sonny' Crockett and Ricardo 'Rico' Tubbs are undercover agents who are stylish with fast cars and guns. From the beginning it wasn't that engaging, dialogue were iffy and intimate scenes were too emphasized. As mentioned before this review, the plot was one of the main reasons it never became good. The TV show could do better stories than this installment. Lack of character development, interesting story and villain left this reviewer disappointed. Only thing worth seeing was the near conclusion during the rescue. Miami Vice is one of those TV shows that should have never been created for the big picture, unless your into violence, sex, fast cars and undercover cop movies. Too each his own as the saying goes.

I remember kinda liking this movie. The action was good. But if I remember correctly, the plot was kind of lacking.

A razor thin plot is drawn out through lush cinematography and an MTV soundtrack filled with Mash-Ups and mild trance. Is that okay? Some may fall prey to its style, though even that is questionable as Crockett and Tubbs sport two of the strangest hairlines in cinematic memory. I won't say more, but you'll need to see it or google-pic it to believe it. Mann's set-up is fascinating enough and puts a veiled cover over Haitan, Cuban, and Aryan gangs battling over the Miami drug trade. From there it dissolves into paint-by-number territory where everything you thought would happen slowly dries over three hours.

Realistically shot in typical, monochromatic Michael Mann style, but this is just boring and generic cops vs. criminals territory which leaves too many loose ends. Final Grade: C

"Miami Vice" by Yojimbo

I'll begin by saying that I've seen the original TV show, and it sucked. It was a glossy, superficial and brainless excuse to show expensive sports cars, speedboats and girls in bikinis to an MTV style soundtrack. In this tradition this film succeeds greatly; the plot is unbelievably cliched and the soundtrack is annoyingly conspicuous, but the visuals are very slick and it does entertain in a mindless popcorn kind of way. I think the main problem with this film is that it was directed by Michael Mann, and as such the expectation was for something with the subtlety and depth of Heat, but in retrospect I don't think that was ever the intention. As a result, I will give it the benefit of the doubt and say it is a somewhat disappointing but otherwise slick and efficient no-brainer.

Lacks just about everything the TV series had

Based upon the one of the most influential US television shows of all time that brought us brightly colored pastel suits, New Wave music and 1980's icon Don Johnson. However, fans of the series will see a darker, less influential movie that doesn't come close to the original.

Miami-Date Police Detectives "James 'Sonny' Crockett" (Colin Farrell) and "Ricardo 'Rico' Tubbs" (Jamie Foxx) have lost a former informant (John Hawks), when he commits suicide right in front of him after learning that his wife was killed by a necklace implanted with C-4 by a Columbian cartel that discovered that he was working for the FBI.

The two then join the investigation, and go to Columbia undercover looking for the souped-up boats delivering the narcotics. They then go after the cartel itself, focusing...
