Storyline

Ricardo Tubbs is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx-born Intel analyst Trudy, as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders. Sonny Crockett [to the untrained eye, his presentation may seem unorthodox, but procedurally, he is sound] is charismatic and flirtatious until - while undercover working with the supplier of the South Florida group - he gets romantically entangled with Isabella, the Chinese-Cuban wife of an arms and drugs trafficker. The best undercover identity is oneself with the volume turned up and restraint unplugged. The intensity of the case pushes Crockett and Tubbs out onto the edge where identity and fabrication become blurred, where cop and player become one - especially for Crockett in his romance with Isabella and for Tubbs in the provocation of an assault on those he loves.

"Miami Vice" is a very exciting film—from start to finish…
21 May 2007 | by Nazi_Fighter_DavidSee all my reviews

Michael Mann presents the city of Miami as attractive, engaging, alluring, sensual and also dangerous…

This is a story about being undercover, and what happens when you go deep undercover, particularly if you're doing an operation in a foreign country, where your badge doesn't count and where you can't have a SWAT team surveilling you, and people are not in contact, you really are out on the edge…

Crockett (Colin Farrell) and Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) have to act, talk and walk like bad guys… They have to convince a mid-level trafficker, the Colombian José Yero (John Ortiz) that they are not cops… So they have to adapt themselves and change themselves to play the role they're trying to play… It's all the impulses in their personality with the volume turned up and the inhibitions turned off…

"Miami Vice" is not about one commodity, cocaine, and one geographical location, Columbia… It's about globalized forms of trafficking… Los Angeles to Port of Prince, to Guajira Peninsula, to Havana and, naturally, to Miami… Crockett and Tubbs had to deal with major narcotics traffickers that act as brilliant businessmen, at the upper echelons of command and control, sitting in luxurious houses, eating the best foods, driving the best cars…

Mann has, wisely, taken the format of the show presenting two cops confronting wealth and power after the death of one informant and the killing of his whole family…

As police drama go, "Miami Vice" does exciting things when Yero jacked one of the two Miami cops' people… The film is impeccable, especially in the last 30 minutes, when the police decided not to initiate until they've got Yero's shooters in their sights…
