A Castillo driven tale that's effective and memorable
12 July 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

"Bushido" has a powerful beginning with an atmospheric stakeout in the humid Miami night.

Castillo is genuinely shaken by the revelation that his old friend, Jack Gretsky (Dean Stockwell), is alive and kicking. The blue touchpaper is lit for an action packed and dramatic episode with Castillo at the centre of the plot.

Edward James Olmos himself directs this episode and it's a solid effort. The cast includes David ("Sledge Hammer!") Rasche as the main baddie, Surf.

Kate Bush's beautifully strange "Hello Earth" is edited for maximum effect in the closing scenes. Bryan Ferry's "Boys & Girls" also features on the soundtrack.

A 9 in "Miami Vice" terms but so much better than anything made thesedays...
