    Michael Mann is an American director who works in the Honk Kong idium - he's learned that energy can often triumph over a weak or formulaic story. It worked for Blackhat, but not, I fear, for Miami Vice. Crockett and Tubbs get involved with a drug cartel in their feature film return, and though Jamie Foxx is fine in the later part, Colin Farrell walks around with a distracting blond mullet and has scarcely any chemistry with bad girl Gong Li so we never really believe their romance. But then, the characters are so thinly drawn, it's hard to care for anyone (Naomie Harris may be the exception). Mann throws in gratuitous sex scenes as if he were evoking the 1980s when Miami Vice was on TV, but little else does. It perhaps doesn't help that I never saw more than a couple of episodes of Vice back in the day, but I'm not sure it matters. The film is a fair crime picture, with a lot of macho posturing and cool camera work/lighting. But no more than that. I was weighing whether or not to bail out after the first 25 minutes. And if I had worked on this movie, I think I'd be pissed at Mann for rendering the credits in an illegible ultraviolet font. 3 years 7 months ago
