NO RULES. NO ORDER. NO LAW.
Miami police detectives Sonny Crockett and Ricardo Tubbs (Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx) go undercover for the federal authorities in order to expose a very sophisticated drug ring. Sounds familiar, huh? The story is reminiscent of old scripts for the TV series (which was executive-produced by Michael Mann), but this film is much darker and more brutal. It’s all about style, and a lesser director could never hold one’s attention the way Mann does with so little to offer… but eventually the whole experience wears thin. And how incompetent is Sonny Crockett?
2006-U.S. 134 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Michael Mann. Cast: Jamie Foxx (Ricardo Tubbs), Colin Farrell (Sonny Crockett), Gong Li (Isabella), Naomie Harris, Ciáran Hinds, Justin Theroux… John Hawkes.
