Miami Vice, Farrell and Foxx on the streets, New Trailer Stream
Farrell and Foxx on the streets
The cocaine cowboys of the '80s are gone, but Miami's Casablanca allure, the under cover cops and the attitudes of Michael Mann's culturally influential television series have been enhanced by time in the feature film version of Miami Vice.
Ricardo Tubbs (Academy Award winner Jamie Foxx of Ray, Jarhead) is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx- born intel analyst Turdy, played by British actress Naomie Harris (28 Days later, upcoming Pirates of the Caribbean II and III), as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders.
Sony Crockett (Colin Farrell of S.W.A.T, The New World) [to the untrained eye, his presentation may seem unorthodox, but procedurally he is sound} is charismatic and flirtatious untilÃ¢Â€Â”while undercover working with the supplier of the South Florida groupÃ¢Â€Â”he gets romantically entangled with Isabella, the Chinese- Cuban wife of an arms and drugs trafficker. Isabella is played by Chinese actress Gong Li (Raise the Red Lantern, Memoirs of a Geisha).
The best undercover identity is oneself with the volume turned up and restraint unplugged. The intensity of this case pushes Crockett and Tubbs out onto the edge where identity and fabrication become blurred, where cop and player become oneÃ¢Â€Â”especially for Crockett in his romance with Isabella and for Tubbs in the provocation of an assault on those he loves.
Miami Vice, as a large-scale feature film, liberates what is adult, dangerous and alluring about working deeply undercoverÃ¢Â€Â¦ especially when Crockett and Tubbs go to where their badges don't countÃ¢Â€Â¦
Miami Vice stars Colin Farrell, Jamie Foxx, Gong Li, Naomie Harris and Ciarn Hinds and is written and directed by Michael Mann, who also produces along with Pieter Jan Brugge; Anthony Yerkovich serves as executive producer.
