Smooth direction and Bruce Willis as a heavy make this a winner
7 April 2016 | by Mr-FusionSee all my reviews

From the beginning, the writing staff made it a point to show that "Miami Vice" isn't just about nose candy. So far, we've seen an X-rated movie baron, a contract killer, loan-sharking, and 'No Exit' centers on an arms dealer. And we're only seven episodes into the first season.

And who better to play that low life gun runner than Bruce Willis, who turns in one of the series' best heavy performances. Guy's a real scum bag, and that machismo is icing on the cake. He's got an untouchable air about him and that results in an utterly bleak ending. But the episode as a whole is a winner as Crockett and Tubbs mount a skilled offensive. We're watching these guys do what they do best.
