Synopsis


Miami Vice
Writer and director Michael Mann updates the groundbreaking television crime series he created in the 1980s with this stylish thriller. Ricardo Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) and Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell) are two police detectives working undercover in Florida; Tubbs is smart, cool, and resourceful, while Crockett has his own way of doing things, though he stays close enough to the rules to stay out of trouble. Their latest assignment is to get the goods on Arcangel de Jesus Montoya (Luis Tosar), a local drug kingpin whose men are believed to be responsible for a handful of recent murders. In order to infiltrate Montoya's operation, Tubbs and Crockett pose as powerboat racers willing to use their talents to pilot drug-smuggling ships for the right price. The detectives' ruse works, but as they dig deeper into Montoya's inner circle, they become involved in a dangerous operation that will take them to Haiti and Cuba, where neither the Miami Police Force nor the United States government can help them if things go wrong. Crockett also begins walking a risky path when he begins an affair with Isabella (Gong Li), a woman high up in Montoya's organization. Miami Vice marked Michael Mann's third consecutive directorial effort with Jamie Foxx after Ali and Collateral. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I thought is was good not too far off from the tv show. It lived up to my expectation. I was not disappointed. I recommend it to anyone who is thinking about buying it or just likes drama movies.

    i am not a big fan of jamie fox and colin ferrell but you put them with michael man my favorite director you get magic, the camera work is awesome and the music puts you in a mood for this movie. the plot is original although it drags on parts but thats a minor flaw.

    Nothing Like TV Show

    First and foremost Sonny would never fall for and bang a criminal chick then help her get away. Sunny had morals of a Boy Scout. It was unbelievable. It was wrong wrong wrong to do that to him... Pfft. Great production otherwise.

    At the sale price this is a good movie to own. After you watch it a few times it ends up being a pretty cool movie; a nice break from the usual action film. The aircraft scenes are some of the best from Hollywood as this was filmed in hi def. There is a very unique aircraft featured in the movie that has a story behind it..
