Manns hard-boiled opus to the genre electrifies those paying enough attention

A lot of bad reviews for this film, and as undeservedly as they are, the arguments have a sort of merit. Namely the spare and crisp dialog, which, with every word illuminates another twist, might leave some confused as to why the events unfolding are happening, but an attentive viewer will find nuance, style and machismo blending beautifully and epic, into a film that can be almost endlessly re watched if given a few months each time. Mann directs an absolutely mesmerizing Ferrell and even manages to allow Foxx not being made for the role to creep into our minds as a possibility, as he delivers a performance i think would have been far less impressive without judicious and liberal time on the cutting room floor. Formulaic? Nah, just something of a standard done so well, you can hardly remember it ever sounding so good.

Michael Mann's Idiosyncratic Masterwork


Viewed Theatrical Cut

As luxurious as it is beautiful, Michael Mann's Miami Vice is one of the most bizarre movies I've ever seen. Not necessarily in content, but more so in how that content is shot, scored, and cut together into a film. The cinematography is beautifully strange, utilizing hand-held in a way similar to Hard to Be a God(or should I say Hard to Be a God is shot in a way similar to this?), and the way the film is edited is so unorthodox is scene structure and narrative flow that it made me think that Michael Mann was warming up to Terrence Malick's method of jagged editing, deciding to use it in a police procedural, of all things, to make a wholly original experience. The film manages to have a luxurious pace that also has a very consistent flow to it, keeping the plot running while developing character and atmosphere simultaneously, making every single second count. It's astonishing the way the film manages to apply this editing style to something so seemingly foreign, and make it all gel together. The performances are extremely strong as well, with Jamie Foxx giving one of his best performances I've ever seen from him, as well as Colin Farrell bringing a multifaceted character to life beautifully in the course of the narrative. One thing I did notice was a distinct lack of action, but what I realize now is that this isn't even really an action movie. It has 3 great action sequences, but it's really about the way the characters function with each other and with their environment in Miami. It's all so idiosyncratic, yet unmistakably successful, that the entire film feels like an entirely foreign world from ours despite the level of realism that the film captures. I don't have anything else to say about this beast of a film, unfortunately; it's greatness eludes me. For now, just know that I loved this movie, and although not everyone will love it(there's no surprise that this film and Knight of Cups have nearly the same rating on IMDb, they practically share the same textures), those who will will find they have discovered a small/big masterpiece.

How to envy such a way of life!

"Miami Vice" was a successful television series created by Anthony Yerkovich about two undercover detectives working against drug trafficking mafias based in that southeastern US city where they controlled the cocaine that was consumed in the country , while distributing it to various parts of the world. The series was broadcast between 1984 and 1989 in the US, and was also broadcasted in numerous countries of America and Europe, where it always obtained a high rating of tuning. Its executive producer, Michael Mann, who later became a brilliant and astounding filmmaker, with titles such as "The Last Mohican," "Heat" and "Collateral," was in charge of directing the film version of this popular series, which the characters of Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs - now played by Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx respectively - have to deal with the fearsome and sophisticated organization that has murdered two federal police and has massacred a whole family.

Infiltrating the organization that commands a Latin American capo (identified as Colombian, but with a Cuban accent), the two detectives will see it complicated to finish with the dark smugglers, while Sonny is having a good time with Isabella, the finance chief at the one that has managed to seduce.

If I had been able to dispense with the always pleasant and very sober presence of Gong Li - the muse of the excellent Chinese director Zhang Yimou, and replaces the role of Saundra Santiago - I think "Miami Vice" would have ended for me shortly before the first hour. The story became meager, monotonous, full of common elements...and the presence of Michael Mann, can hardly be guessed in the scene of action of the port where you can notice an efficient composition, and in that meeting where the romance uncovers its veil and takes the course that corresponds to it.

What turned the real art of "Heat" and "Collateral" into the realm of the seventh art was Mann's ability to sculpt characters who came to life on the scene with their contradictions, their deep emotions, and their ability to connect with them indissolubly. In those films, there was a powerful dramatic breath, art and poetry went through any gaps, and a load of magnificent feelings made us proud of being human.

But none of this is possible to find in "Miami Vice", and the only thing I can rescue at the story level is that it leaves well re- created the terrible, sad atmosphere in which so many people move. An absolutely undesirable lifestyle.
