Painterly scumble... dimly illuminated night settings. Miami Vice is Mann's usual triangulation of Nietzsche, linen-edge designers like Ozwald Boateng and distinguished painters of geometric abstraction, like the great Richard Diebenkorn.

Mann's folly is the best show in town.

Miami Vice isn't a particularly accurate translation of the show - and depending on your point of view that could be good or bad - but it is a stylish, if uninspired, crime thriller.

Mann has no peer today when it comes to painting after-hours dread

[The punchy] theatrical opening... doesn't so much lead viewers into the film as it injects them.

Mas é justamente neste momento que, infelizmente, Michael Mann parece se lembrar de que, afinal de contas, está a serviço de Hollywood.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Miami Vice is pure Miami Vice. It's pure Michael Mann. And most importantly of all, Colin Farrell is pure Don Johnson

Not the film we were promised but no shame either, Miami Vice is loaded with just enough thrills and spills to keep us glued to our seats.
