While Miami Vice is heavy on the style and visuals of Mann's other films, almost everything else which makes his work so watchable is absent.

Miami Vice is stylish and slick. It visually smacks you in the head and makes you pay attention.

Like the show itself, as much as there is a ton of style on offer, there is little in the way of real substance

Were it not for its title, this plodding, tiresome mess would have never seen the light of day.

In retrospect it is clear that the rapturous Miami Vice is the work Mann has been building to.

The best bad movie of the year so far, or the worst interesting movie...certainly the most esoterically constructed blockbuster that ever donned a $150-million price tag.

This has more in common with a Wong Kar-wai film than any Hollywood movie I've seen lately.

Mann's aim seems to return an artistry to the cop drama, it's much the same high ambition he had two decades ago with his TV show the method is definitely different but the results are even more pleasing.

There's no style, glitz, glamour, or music! The movie is called MIAMI VICE! How can you have "Miami Vice" without at least ONE good Music montage? At the very least you would think, the movie would have some, oh, I don't know, ACTION!

Farrell and Foxx are partners? They don't even look at each other in Mann's remake of his acclaimed "Heat."

Several voters at believe the Miami Vice TV show jumped the shark when Don Johnson married Sheena Easton. The big-screen version of Miami Vice jumps the shark about 45 minutes into the movie.

...the non-stop action doesn't just complicate the officers' relationships -- it prevents us from connecting strongly with them.

Mann is the master of nighttime digital photography, and he fills the screen with stunning images and some intricately choreographed shoot-out scenes that I just loved.

I haven't seen so many cold stares in one movie since March of the Penguins.

This is a movie of extremes: alternately dazzling and deadening, careening between stylish and stultifying, tough going on occasion and smooth sailing the rest of the way. Yet in the final count, it's the virtues that save this Vice.
