Miami Vice

Two vice detectives' personal and professional lives intertwine dangerously.

Why watch this film?

After 22 years of the television series' success, 'Miami Vice' finally hit the big screen in 2006. The cast from the TV production wasn't called back, leaving the responsibility to represent the veterans in the hands of Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx - plus, Michael Mann ('Collateral') signed as director, while he was previously a producer of the series. The atmosphere isn't the same and those who go to watch the movie wanting to reclaim the old spirit of the series will be disappointed. A lot has changed, the tone isn't the same anymore. However, when thinking of 'Miami Vice' as an independent production, the qualities of a good police story are there: tense moments, an unsettling ongoing investigation, and good actors leading action and suspense in equal measures. The advice, then, is to forget the series and embark on the proposal. Despite mistakes here and there, the fun arrives and, who knows, maybe the taste of the 1980s production comes back?
