I enjoyed the movie but would have enjoyed it more if
1) opening with original theme and Hiallea Flamingos
2) A car scene with the Atr Deco Neon of Ocean avenue in background
3) Smugglers bluesduring a boat scene
4)Original Phil Collins In the air tonigh durin Movie
5)Open with deleted boat racin 4 min would tie into characters would have given more credibility to Crocket and Tubbs for being smugglers (The stereotype)
6) Make room for above by cutting 4 min out of dancing and love scenes

Collin Farrel was ok but needed a better Crocket

Movie then would have been just right

A bad imitation of the original tv series at best. Colin Ferrel and Jamie Foxx were not the actors needed to imitate/replace D.J. or P.M.T.
It seemed more like a platform for Colin Ferrel's career than an action movie. Personally thought that the best acting in the movie was the girl that played Gina, she had some of the sarcasam and attitude from the original Miami Vice.

Nothing to brag about at all......i went into the thearter expecting ot to be like it was in the 80's show and it wasn;t....the movie was mainly base on crocket falling in LOVE .......what i think would have been BADASS is like ( like my dad said) a return of the series " Calderone's " part 3 that his son comes back again to kill crockett and tubs...something that had to do something with the tv show....that's my 002

Thumbs up Re: Miami Vice

The story line (and indeed several scenes) were right out of the "Smuggler's Blues" episode. I thought the gun battles were excellent and the acting was passable. The film quality was very grainy were I saw it also - the film was dark and gritty enough without so-so film quality. Still the 1985 borrowed story line was strong. I'd give the film a seven rating and I'd see a sequel if they decided to do one.

There was acting in the movie? Not sure since I could not hear anything they were saying. Or could be because I was grossed out by close in shots of sweaty skin pores on two ugly people in a shower.

I think some illegal aliens/democrats just voted in favor of the movie...they voted multiple times, and the pro movie poll total suddenly leaped!

The group is NONPOINT. They have a few other good songs as well.

Talk about a good Phil Collins cover --- have you heard "Land of Confusion" by Disturbed ? Actually, that`s a Genesis cover, but Phil was singing....

One of my favorite songs right now !

What the hell happened to all the race boat scenes that were advertised / promised in POWERBOAT???? No explanation for the Supercat parked in the backyard??? Could have done without the Asian love seens. I got more wood from the MTI anyway..... What a waste......

Disturbed, land of confusion link, song is FREAKIN AWESOME!

Going to watch the movie tonight so I hope you guys have not crushed what I THINK its going to be but we will see. I think I am a little more forgiving than some of you but we will see. Grainy is something I am not going to like though, In today's world with the digital technology and crisp clear filmstrips and video strips, that is not acceptable. Especially on a what, 40 foot wide screen? Ahhh no.
