4.0 out of 5 stars The real Miami Vice: DVD Revision. Dec 5 2006
By M. Lind
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.

1.0 out of 5 stars In-action movie Feb. 23 2014
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maybe I just didn't get it.... Sept. 14 2008
It is possible...maybe I just didn't get it...or maybe I am too googoogaga over Miami Vice the series...but I had to sit down 3 seperate times to watch this movie. I guess I thought this movie would be an extension of the tv show...it is not. If you go into this movie with this expectation, you will be disappointed. Although the plot was believable there were a few things that just didn't jive. First of all, Sonny's favourite drink is a blackjack...not a mohito...and he does not dance...its Tubbs that has the dancing shoes. And the big thing....Zito was in the movie...ah...hello...check season 3 people...Zito was killed by Guzman....why didn't you just put in Swyteck? Lt. Costillo was a quiet man of few words...his counter part in this movie didn't have this personality at all. Like I said...I assumed it was going to be an extension of the show. Maybe that was my bad...I have watched the Miami Vice series twice now (I love owning it on DVD) and I will surely watch it again...I love it...but the movie....not so much.
I will say that once I realized it was not going to be like the tv show (or really resemble it for that matter)...it was ok...but like one of the other ppl said...borrow it from someone who bought it.
