Huh?, 30 July 2006
Just saw the film today- I am a big fan of Michael Mann' films but I
must say I was somewhat disappointed. The story is realistic and
believable, the acting was on point for the most part and of course the
cinematography was excellent. The films biggest fault-unintelligible
dialog. I viewed Miami Vice in a digital surround theater,and the
effects-gunshots,helicopters,speedboats,sports cars etc.were plenty
clear but I found myself straining to hear most of what the actors were
saying. Of course, the heavy accents and macho low voice tones didn't
help. Its a good drug/crime action movie but very far from the caliber
of films Mann is known for(Heat,Collateral). I remember rushing home in
the eighties to see Miami Vice,I don't think I ever missed an episode.
Maybe I just expected too much.
