The Way of the Warrior
11 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Miami Vice" has a signature brand of intensity. Usually, that belongs to Crockett, but here it's owned by Lt. Castillo. 'Bushido' gives us the biggest glimpse into his past, pitting him against old familiar faces, while excluding pretty much everyone else who can help him. And it's a fascinating story, playing all of this material against a Japanese warrior fable. To get a good idea of what this is really all about, Castillo at one point trades in his revolver for a samurai sword. And it works, especially with the ideal choice of David Rasche as a bad CIA operative.

Not everyone who made it out of Vietnam did so intact, and that really deepens this show's mistrust of geopolitical players.

8/10
