  1. Joks's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Claims for its greatness are seriously exaggerated. The night shots look good, the day shots do not. Other directors have made far more interesting and genuinely artful films on a fraction of the cost. What does Mann have to tell us about the duality of undercover life? Pretty much nothing. Some great scenes on speedboats and in cars, but I still remain unconvinced.

  3. spasmolytic's rating of the film Miami Vice

  4. Hyperion_333's rating of the film Miami Vice

    The disgusting nu-metal version of Phil Collins "In the Air Tonight" at the climax explains this film perfectly.

  5. DSPRKY's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Proof positive that Michael Mann is criminally underrated. The way he helms an otherwise ordinary action film is inspirational.

  6. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Huh, this was not the neon extravagance I was lead to beleive but a radical explosion of post-story, post-character cinema. The agressively pared-back approach and staggering pacing morphs a generic genre script into a Malick-ian montage of modern, digital dread. The more I read about it, the more this seems accidental, but intention is only as important as plot, which is to say not at all.

  7. Kamran's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Action with consequences, character depth with emotional gravitas, and brilliant pacing. This is how to make a blockbuster! 89/100 - Excellent

  8. Star Lord's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Non male, rivisto poco tempo fa.

  9. CanonFiller's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Farrell looks freakin upset with something throughout the whole movie, maybe his character sucking, like any other. Foxx looks looser, but he ain't got much to work with. The scrip made it easy for me not to care about anything that was going on. Very pretty. Loud guns. Miami Bland

  13. Mr.Pacha's rating of the film Miami Vice

  14. T. J. Mesen's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Top Ten countdown – #10 Digital is mood in Miami Vice; its movement, shadows, and colours are unique. This heavy hyper-real DV style, aptly reflects a narrative of gestures that constitutes the (under)world and characters we follow. A noise-heavy indigo sky, moving speedboats in the dark, silent tears at a club. A nightmare they're forced to inhabit, permeated by the tragic notion that in the end nothing has changed.

  15. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Miami Vice

    A perfect example of how a film's greatness is not necessarily in what, but how, it tells/shows. What a great balance of impossible love in the guise of a drug bust movie. What is so great is the restraint Mann has with the touchy-feely love story, which gives it all the more power. And awesome cinematography, combining realism and abstraction! (...and Gong Li's beauty makes me weak in the knees...)

  16. Noah Friedman's rating of the film Miami Vice

  17. Arthur G's rating of the film Miami Vice

    "Tabu" all over again. Mann is the twenty first century Murnau alright

  18. Brendan's rating of the film Miami Vice

    This appears to have much more in common with Colossal Youth than any contemporary action movie

  19. Warren Spratley's rating of the film Miami Vice

    Mann's aesthetic concern w/ how digital photography might reveal the material texture of light & darkness is here fused with an almost Wellesian mode of image-making & myth-making. MIAMI VICE is Mann at his most baroque: foregrounds are stressed, compositional depths explode. These characters are mythological titans, towering among cityscapes, glistening across seas, eyes full of quiet emotion, firm resolve, & life.

  20. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Miami Vice

    This movie spends a lot of time building up a bunch of interesting characters and relationships that it seems weirdly content to piss away in the final act. I have the same problem with this that I do with Heat, which is that for all the stylistic innovation and methodical pacing it still rests in lazy neo-noir cliches and is driven by ultimately unmemorable characters. Nice ride, lackluster destination.

  21. Robert Howard's rating of the film Miami Vice

    I like to watch this once a year. The script, colors, camera work, and good guys vs. bad guys scenario never gets boring. The actors are excellent and give the piece real feeling. Mann's director commentary is smart and informative too.

  23. Alex Denison's rating of the film Miami Vice

    The first Mann film I responded to. Whatever negative things you might say about him, at least he's always weird: the editing, shot selection, and acting defy all cinematic conventions and, for an action film, there's very little action going on. About 95% of the movie is people talking or driving around. Like Godard calling A Woman is a Woman a "neorealist musical", we could call this "Soviet Montage: A Blockbuster"

  24. msmichel's rating of the film Miami Vice

    A stylish but empty retake on the iconic but cheesy television series of the eighties. Not much substance to a film that screams style hampered by its weak plotting and poor casting.
