A deadly serious, stylishly noirish, but fundamentally insubstantial thriller.

Miami Vice is a movie made by a man whose mastery of the medium, and whose obsessive concerns for detail, put images of uncommon distinction on the big screen.
October 7, 2006
This somber action picture bravely defies expectations and gives us something wholly new.
August 11, 2006
The writer-director Michael Mann can have you believe almost anything... Miami Vice is rife with implausibilities yet so firmly rooted in what looks and sounds like reality that suspension of disbelief is almost mandatory -- at least for a while.
August 7, 2006
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.
August 5, 2006
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.

Miami Vice isn't perfect, but it is perfectly mesmerizing.
August 3, 2006
I enjoyed Mr. Mann's new Miami Vice from its first ravishing frame to the last, but I can't say that very much of it made sense -- but then, neither do the daily headlines.

It's business as usual for Mann. Truly terrific.
August 1, 2006
Michael Mann has come a long way since his days supervising Miami Vice on TV, and it's fascinating to watch a filmmaker of such extraordinary ability working a slice of pure cheesecake like this.
July 31, 2006
Even the grubby look would be forgivable were it not for the film's greatest crime. It's really boring.

The movie isn't perfect, but it's good enough, and better than most. It should keep us occupied until the big screen version of The Apprentice comes along.
July 28, 2006
The truest thing to say about Miami Vice is that it's an OK picture with some superb things in it.
July 28, 2006
If you're looking for a crime story that sizzles with action, sex and the visceral jolt of life on the edge, Miami Vice is the one.
July 28, 2006
Miami Vice, the movie, is an atmospheric muddle, as gorgeous and unintelligible as raven-haired stunner Gong Li.
July 28, 2006
It works as well as it ever did. It works because Mann makes it work.
July 28, 2006
It offers a good amount of crowd-pleasing action, but the story is convoluted and the heroes are scowling mannequins.
July 28, 2006
The antidote to M:i:III, Pirates II and every other circus of coagulated stunts is Miami Vice, my favorite Hollywood movie of the summer so far.
July 28, 2006
Miami Vice is the last of the predicted summer blockbusters, and it delivers a reasonable amount of popcorn excitement.
July 28, 2006
This is more of a thinking man's action flick -- a small, intense film made on a giant canvas that finds Mann experimenting with and pushing at the boundaries of mainstream filmmaking.
