    ★★★½

    Part 2 of my weekend look back at two initially unsuccessful Colin Farrell films from the middle 2000s which seemed ripe for rediscovery takes me from the rustic earth tones of Jamestown, Virginia circa 1607 to the sleek urban milieu of contemporary Miami in writer/director Michael Mann's feature length adaptation of the classic television series Miami Vice which Mann helped spearhead throughout much of its initial run in the 1980s.
