4.0 out of 5 stars The real Miami Vice: DVD Revision. Dec 5 2006
By M. Lind
Format:DVD
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
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3 1/2 Stars: Partners Oct. 31 2006
Format:DVD
With style, pizzazz and beautifully photographed vistas to burn, Michael Mann's "Miami Vice" begins with a terrific scene inside a Miami Club: the frantic camera follows the principals: Sonny {a sad, depleted, worn Colin Farrell}, Ricardo {a muted Jamie Foxx} and Jose {a, though he is a Latino, odd sounding and accented John Ortiz} in a whirlwind of activity that leaves you breathless and excited about the film that is set to unfold. And most of what unfolds is good but some is not.

First of all, with all the talk between Sonny and Ricardo about having each others back and "I will never doubt you" talk, there is very little real chemistry between the two and almost no sense that these two are friends which is an absolute prerequisite for partners working undercover. This is partly the screenplay of course but it is primarily in the performances: Sonny and Ricardo in this context do not show anything amounting to affection towards or concern about each other and this damages the film.

Another problem is Li Gong (as Isabella, love interest to both Sonny and Drug Lord, Jesus). Though an incredible actress and eye-popping screen presence in her native China (Check out "Temptress Moon" and "Farewell My Concubine") she is mostly stilted and unintelligible here particularly in comparison to her sublime Hatsumono in "Memoirs of a Geisha." And though she and Farrell have real chemistry together, she really just fades into the frenetic background in most of her scenes and this can only be laid on Mann's doorstep.

Though the last big action scene (a shoot out between the good and the bad guys) is a real letdown...listless, unexciting, anti-climactic, "Miami Vice" is beautifully produced and the 2 ' hours moves quickly: you are never bored.
