I don't understand why the so-called Director's Cut version didn't end up as the film shown last summer(Michael Mann, on commentary, states this is the revision of the original "after only 2 months from initial release "). For me, this recut version filled in a lot of character exposition and more visual, mood and atmosphere (like the opening sequence with the boats and the water). On the face of it, seven minutes more running time, from the theatrical version, doesn't seem like it would have much to add, but it makes the difference between an unsatisfactory movie experience and one that truly upgrades the Miami Vice brand. If any of you were half-satisfied with the original movie, give the DVD version a look. It's almost feels like a different movie.

Never having been a fan of the TV series (but I confess to never having seen an entire episode), I had no expectations going in, except to be entertained with Mann's customary flair for terse dialogue and stunning visuals. And on that level, I wasn't disappointed. I'd also read that the film wastes no time establishing any back story for the uninitiated, and so it proves. In Zen-like fashion Crockett and Tubbs simply ARE, which allows the film to kick off in the thick of the action.

The best way to watch this film is as a police procedural, with a side order of oddly yearning romanticism. No concessions are made to the audience in terms of explaining the cops terminology and the limited exposition is justified as one group of criminals explaining how their operation works to their new collaborators. Once you realize that you don't have to register every nuance and detail to appreciate the plot, you can sit back and enjoy some eerily beautiful Hi-Def cinematography. Petrol-heads and fans of unfeasibly fast motorboats will also find much to enjoy. The "mojitos in Havana" romantic interlude was a pleasant surprise, with Farrell having to flex more than just his eyebrows to convince us that this probably is the ultimate first date.

The jury's still out for me on Mann's use of music. The blaring MOR rock fits stylistically but can cheapen some scenes. And it would be nice to more scenes sound tracked by near-silence, as is achieved very effectively in a stake-out/rescue scenario later in the film. Farrell and Foxx do work well together, indeed its refreshing to have a cop pairing without all the cutesy buddy stuff. Nevertheless, when one tells the other "I will never doubt you" it's almost a statement of love, coming as it does out of a void of professionalism.

Format: Blu-ray
For the record, I have never seen the original "Miami Vice" TV show, since I was a very small child when it originally came out.

So be assured that the movie adaptation of "Miami Vice" -- produced, directed and written by the series' producer Michael Mann -- does not induce fan-rage in me. It fails not as an adaptation, but as an interesting movie. It's an astoundingly realistic and gritty movie, but it also has almost no tension or excitement... and it piles on a truckload of Hollywood cliches.

While pursuing a pimp at a Miami nightclub, "Sonny" Crockett ( Colin Farrell) and "Rico" Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) are called out by an informant who has been working for the FBI. The guy commits suicide when he discovers that a Colombian cartel has murdered his wife, but not before he reveals that somebody compromised him.

With the blessing of FBI Special Agent John Fujima (Ciarán Hinds), Sonny and Rico pose as drug smugglers who offer their services to Jose Yero (John Ortiz) and the kingpin Archangel de Jesus Montoya (Luis Tosar). Sonny starts to fall in love with Isabella (Gong Li), Montoya's girlfriend/financial advisor, but it doesn't take long for everything to go belly-up for the Miami Vice partners.

The problem with "Miami Vice" can be summed up in three words: it is BORING. There are long stretches where absolutely nothing seems to be happening, which Mann tries to fill up with an awkward Sonny/Isabella romance and lots of talking about things that MIGHT happen. In fact, the romance completely derails the whole drug-smuggling plot for awhile.

I'm sure actual vice cops have long stretches of tedium in their jobs, so in that regard the movie does feel very "real.
