HD DVD review: Miami Vice

Miami Vice is ultimately close to two and a half hours of posturing, insincere characterisation and abrasive style, none of which would suggest, barring the appearance of his name during the opening credits, that a filmmaker of Michael Mann’s calibre was behind it. To describe it as a failed experiment would be charitable: a mess is a more accurate description.

Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx don their designer shades and head out to the beach as I review Universal’s recent HD DVD/DVD combo release of Miami Vice.

very nice. I'm thinking of picking this one up. Never been a big fan of Mann and the reviews are so polarizing(ranging from 10/10s to 1/10s) - I guess I'll have to rent it in SD and see if I like it. I know you're a fan of Jet Li's Unleashed(Danny the Dog); I recieved "Fearless" yesterday and imo it's a very nice film, though not as good as the former. Video quality was top notch despite the drap color palette, though there was a bit of overly intrusive EE, and the sound was phenomenal
