    This somber action picture bravely defies expectations and gives us something wholly new.

    Name user

    Mann is the master of nighttime digital photography, and he fills the screen with stunning images and some intricately choreographed shoot-out scenes that I just loved.

    Name user

    Miami Vice isn't perfect, but it is perfectly mesmerizing.

    Name user

    I enjoyed Mr. Mann's new Miami Vice from its first ravishing frame to the last, but I can't say that very much of it made sense -- but then, neither do the daily headlines.

    Name user

    It's business as usual for Mann. Truly terrific.

    The movie isn't perfect, but it's good enough, and better than most. It should keep us occupied until the big screen version of The Apprentice comes along.

    Name user

    The truest thing to say about Miami Vice is that it's an OK picture with some superb things in it.

    If you're looking for a crime story that sizzles with action, sex and the visceral jolt of life on the edge, Miami Vice is the one.

    Name user

    Miami Vice, the movie, is an atmospheric muddle, as gorgeous and unintelligible as raven-haired stunner Gong Li.

    It works as well as it ever did. It works because Mann makes it work.

    4/5
    Name user

    It offers a good amount of crowd-pleasing action, but the story is convoluted and the heroes are scowling mannequins.

    The antidote to M:i:III, Pirates II and every other circus of coagulated stunts is Miami Vice, my favorite Hollywood movie of the summer so far.

    Name user

    Miami Vice is the last of the predicted summer blockbusters, and it delivers a reasonable amount of popcorn excitement.

    Name user

    This is more of a thinking man's action flick -- a small, intense film made on a giant canvas that finds Mann experimenting with and pushing at the boundaries of mainstream filmmaking.

    It might be an empty vessel, but it zooms.

    Name user

    Sensual and scary, the movie is so visually textured you feel as though you're brushing against the screen.

    Name user

    Perhaps had they been given a script, a purpose or a mission, Miami Vice the movie might have been something worthy of the talented Mann's attention.

    2/4
    Name user

    Miami Vice exudes the kind of gritty life we expect, so much so that you might argue that neither Crockett nor Tubbs deserves to be called a main character; Mann reserves that role for crime itself.

    The film, like its oddly rumbling sky, promises more than it ever delivers. Granted, it can look cool. But more often, as we wait for the lightning that never arrives, it frustrates.

    Name user

    The movie is seriously sexy and seriously entertaining.

    3/4

    It's a measure of Michael Mann's gift as a filmmaker that he manages to make stuff you'd never want to do in real life -- like grinding against Colin Farrell in a sweaty nightclub, or exchanging gunfire with Nazi supremacists -- seem strangely appealing.

    Name user

    The new Miami Vice movie is not designed to leave audiences in a partying mood. On its own terms, though, it's frequently worthy of cheers.

    Name user

    Compared with Mann's other films, Miami Vice lacks the slam-bang set pieces of Heat and the human dynamic of Collateral.

    3/5
    Name user

    Mann knows how to make a movie move, and there are sequences in Miami Vice, such as that initial nightclub rumble, that are like swirling fantasias.

    Name user

    Mixing pop savvy with startling formal ambition, Michael Mann transforms a long, fairly predictable cop-show episode into a dazzling (and sometimes daft) Wagnerian spectacle.

    Name user

    The plot is not overtaxing -- it's about guns, drugs and money -- because the real focus is the allure, danger and alienation of hiding behind an assumed identity.

    Name user

    While the moviemaking in Miami Vice is impeccable as always, its story finally turns out to be too flimsy a reed to support all of the weight put on it.

    Name user

    The pacing and proportion of Heat (1995) and the feeling for place and character evident in Collateral (2004) have been tossed aside for a routine plot in which vice cops Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx pose as drug dealers.

    Name user

    The worst news about Miami Vice is that Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx, replacing Don Johnson and Philip Michael Thomas in the key roles, don't hold a candle, a flashlight, a freakin' match to the original guys.

    Name user

    From start to finish, even when you're not sure what's going on or what's being said, you're pulled deep into its vortex of sultry intrigue and unhinged ferocity.

    3/4
    Name user

    While this Vice isn't in the same league as Mann's Collateral (2004) or Heat (1995), it's a gritty, ultra-dark thriller, and it contains two of the best 'kill shot' scenes in recent years.

    3/4
    Name user

    Miami Vice is a dazzler.

    Name user

    Miami Vice is a dark, grainy and heavy drama and so super-serious and smoky thick it could be called Miasma Vice.

    Name user

    Miami Vice, as entertaining as some of it is, is so cool that it's almost too cool. It takes the sin, and much of the juice, out of vice.

    B
    Name user

    Miami Vice is crummy, pointless and brain-dead. No revelation there. But I didn't expect it to be so boring.

    Name user

    As cop movies go, Miami Vice does interesting things with unoriginal material.

    3/4
    Name user

    It's so self-serious at times, it'll prompt you to laugh out loud at moments that aren't supposed to be funny. Which is a total letdown because, theoretically, this is Michael Mann's pure, true vision.

    Name user

    In a career marked by an obsession with the intricacies of law enforcement and criminal activity, this may be Mann's most brutally efficient policier yet.

    Name user

    I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. It's a sensational trip -- gorgeous, gaga.

    Name user

    Miami Vice delivers the thrills, atmosphere and romance it promises, but it doesn't resonate like major Mann.

    Name user

    Mann is good at action, especially when it comes to surprises -- the sudden blossoming of blood behind a gunned-down bad guy, the mighty explosion that we aren't expecting.

    Name user

    This Miami Vice is a grim genre exercise -- fascinating, certainly, and impressive at times, but only intermittently enjoyable.

    Name user

    The visuals are arresting, but Michael Mann's update on the quintessentially '80s series is an otherwise glum and glummer proposition.

    Name user

    Vice revels in the creative latitude that an R-rated feature provides without departing from the show's rudimentary structure.
