A solid episode of "Vice"
13 August 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

This is an entertaining tale, with Crockett and Tubbs on the trail of a deadly assassin who causes mayhem at the wedding of an old friend, a popular deputy DA.

John Heard is first-rate as the lawyer, Laurence Thurmond, who finds himself in a difficult situation. Lothaire Bluteau is also superb as the slippery assassin.

Annie Golden, who made a fleeting appearance in "Prodigal Son" as a prostitute, plays Tommy for the first time in this episode. Tommy is Crockett's no-nonsense mechanic.

"Miami Vice" fans will notice there's a blink-and-you'll-miss-him appearance by composer Jan Hammer in the opening wedding scene of "One Way Ticket". This marks the first appearance of Hammer in the series.

This episode contains tracks from Wilson Pickett, Pete Townshend and Mr. Mister.

9 out of 10. Despite a grim opening, this "Vice" episode actually finishes on something of a light note, a rarity for this series.
