      Don’t rent or buy this movie if you’re expecting to see a big screen version of “Miami Vice” that mirrors the slick coolness of the television show it is based upon. Colin Farrell, as Detective Sonny Crockett, doesn’t come anywhere close to having Don Johnson’s rakish swagger. Farrell is trying much too hard to show how brooding and dark his character is by scowling and mumbling all of his lines.

      I like Jamie Foxx, but just was not impressed at all by his turn as Detective Ricardo Tubbs. Philip Michael Thomas, who played this character on the television version, had much more magnetism and he and Johnson had some chemistry going. I just did not sense any connection between Farrell and Foxx.

      • film, but you ought to at least feel the need to root for the “good guys.” However, there is nothing about the film version of Crockett and Tubbs that makes you care about what happens to them. Even trying to humanize them by giving them love lives doesn’t work. There is no real romantic connection between them and the women who are supposed to be their love interests.

        accompanying villains and cops fail to stand out and were, frankly, pretty boring. Despite a few well-choreographed action scenes, nothing really held my interest.

        Miami Vice” is one of the most ponderous movies I have ever forced myself to endure and, as much as I attempted to make myself like it, I just couldn’t.

        Do yourself a gigantic favor and get a DVD of the original “Miami Vice”. The t.v. version is considerably better.
