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.
Many critics have found in Mann's films an excess of macho bluster. I can only say his power and exuberant self-belief expose the indentikit dullness of a hundred other meagre film-makers working with similar material.
Spearheaded by the compelling paring of Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx, Miami Vice delivers serious action, dangerous liaisons and spectacular locations in a tense and highly anticipated drama adapted from the 80s TV series.
Farrell is superb as Crockett, even managing to avoid being out-acted by his ridiculous moustache, and his scenes with Gong Li (whose English accent sadly hasn't improved since Memoirs of a Geisha) generate real chemistry.
