Miami Vice ★★★

Effective action sequences, especially the climactic shootout. The storyline is not strong or fresh enough to keep things interesting throughout the film’s 134-minute running time. A couple of scenes are unnecessarily drawn out. Wonderful cinematography that really captures and makes the most of the various beautiful locations. In the lead roles, Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx make a very good duo and their characters are sufficiently developed so as to seem like real individuals; John Ortiz and Ciarán Hinds are well cast as Jose Yero, the main villain, and Fujima, an FBI agent, respectively. Stylishly directed by Michael Mann, who has a knack for setting the perfect mood for his movies.
