The movie will obviously disappoint anyone looking for a conventional narrative. We don't have an obvious story arc, and the audience is expected to figure out what's going on without lots of repetition.Read more ›
Michael Mann's films have always dealt with the extremes in its characters. Whether its James Caan's thief character Frank in Thief, the dueling detective and thief of Al Pacino and Robert DeNiro, up to Foxx and Cruise's taxi driver and assassin. They all have had one thing in common. They're individuals dedicated to their chosen craft. Professional in all respect and so focused to doing their job right that they've crossed the line to obsession. These men have an obsession to doing their jobs to the point that its become like a drug to keep them going. This theme continues in Mann's film reboot of his TV series Miami Vice. The characters remain the same. There's still the two main characters of Vice Detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs. This time around these titular characters were played by Colin Farrell (in a look that echoes Gregg Allman more than Don Johnson) and Jamie Foxx. From the first second all the way through to the final fade to black in the end of the film the audience was thrust immediately into the meat of the action.Read more ›
This "Miami Vice" is clearly meant to be something of an examination of undercover work, as opposed to any kind of conventional storytelling in your standard action film. But then Michael Mann is no standard action filmmaker. How he has evolved from his work on "Vice" in its TV heyday to now is like night and day, but the core of what made him a visionary talent even back than has not changed. While this "Miami Vice" may tone down the colorful, hedonistic aspects that the show is remembered for, Mann still remembers to portray, not only Miami, but Cuba, Portugal and host of other global locations, in all their vibrant cultural allure. Crocket and Tubs still take advantage of being undercover by trolling around in designer clothes, expensive cars, and fast boats.
But this is all painted on a much darker palate this time. I'm not sure we ever glimpse Miami during the day and there are no scenes of women roaming the beach in skimpy bikinis.Read more ›
