Uneven story...
23 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One has to question how Sonny Crockett met the title character, played by a very youthful Helena Bonham Carter, in the first place? While I do not object to drug addiction tales involving medical professionals, Helena Bonham Carter was too young to be convincing as a full-fledged doctor. It has been pointed out that Sonny had broken off with Brenda, during the first season, for far less. And poor Brenda was closer to his own age. This was a fault of the casting agent and the producers. No matter how sincere the two actors were on-screen, this love story just did not do very much for me!

Elsewhere, the bureaucracy tended to bog down the story, where Sonny has to clear his name (yet again) and bend the rules in order to bring down his nemesis -- played well by Brad Dourif in his pre-Wormtongue days. Tubbs is the usual rock in this story, supporting his partner, and being characteristically polite -- except toward Ramos, who got dunked in the toilet for his troubles. I also enjoyed the explosions and the action sequences, but I can't help feeling it could have been so much better if the story had been more fair toward the characters.
