Miami Vice

(USA, 2006, 133 minutes)

Two undercover vice squad detectives in Miami find themselves dragged into a federal operation aiming to capture a mysterious drug trafficker working somewhere from Latin America. Dark, kinetic, adult thriller that retains the characters and basic premise but (thankfully) little else of a popular TV series of the 1980s; the rather schematic plot never detracts from the film’s nervous, urgent style. Writer/director Michael Mann was executive producer on the original TV series.
