Storyline

Ricardo Tubbs is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx-born Intel analyst Trudy, as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders. Sonny Crockett [to the untrained eye, his presentation may seem unorthodox, but procedurally, he is sound] is charismatic and flirtatious until - while undercover working with the supplier of the South Florida group - he gets romantically entangled with Isabella, the Chinese-Cuban wife of an arms and drugs trafficker. The best undercover identity is oneself with the volume turned up and restraint unplugged. The intensity of the case pushes Crockett and Tubbs out onto the edge where identity and fabrication become blurred, where cop and player become one - especially for Crockett in his romance with Isabella and for Tubbs in the provocation of an assault on those he loves.

Trivia

Filming in Dominican Republic was suspended during October 2005 due to raucous behavior from the public and a shooting where the aggressor was injured. Jamie Foxx left the country and refused to work outside of the United States. This forced Michael Mann to change the original ending which was to be filmed in Paraguay. See more »

Goofs

When Sonny and Isabella drive off from the shooting at the end of the movie, Isabella attacks him in the car. As the car turns around, the gear shift is in drive, when Sonny constrains Isabella it is in park, and when he drives on it is in drive again. Sonny does not touch the gear shift in between.

Not for everyone
11 August 2006 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I don't see why people are giving so bad reviews to this one. Granted, the film has nothing to do with the old TV-series, and some people probably did expect to see more action from this title.

But if you do what I did, and go see this film without any expectations at all, Miami Vice will surprise you.

Yes there is less action, but all the action in this movie is much more satisfying than in an ordinary movie, I don't recall seeing so realistic gunfights in any other movie. There is no real beginning or ending in this movie, the viewer is just dropped into middle of it, and it's just seamless realistic experience. No vaporous comedy.

This is something that could have actually happened in real life, but it is still an entertainment. There are no typical movie clichés, no actor stands out with too good or bad acting, they all did a great job. Great casting too.

Visually Miami Vice was stunning, the usage of digital cameras when shooting this added lot to the realism. Also the musical score of this movie was excellent.

If you are just looking for brainless action, with guns, cars, and nice looking girls, skip this movie, but if you want deeper, and more realistic film go ahead and see this. 10/10 Best film of this summer.
