This is like the awkward party conversation where someone is like "I don't really like CSI or whatever tv show, but I like movie crime stuff" and I'm like "well, do you like 'Silence of the Lambs' and that type of thing because there was this movie by Michael Mann who starred the one dude from CSI and it's called Manhunter..." and then I get mocked about the fact there is a movie called Manhunter directed by Mann

story of my life

call all destroyer, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 17:53 (2 years ago) Permalink

still easily the best action film i've ever seen. too nervous to watch it again in case in doesn't live up to what i remember.

is the Director's Cut worth a watch just for the boat chase bit? the 'cold' opening is so good i can't believe there's a version, any version that *doesn't* start that way.

piscesx, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 17:57 (2 years ago) Permalink

There are some good extra character scenes (more Trudy iirc) so it's worth seeing. But yeah I'd rather jettison all of that for the in media res club bit.

Fas Ro Duh (Gukbe), Tuesday, 15 May 2012 17:58 (2 years ago) Permalink

man i love the boat race opening. it feels so expansive but cold (dunno if miami cold is like louisiana cold but kinda clammy and unnatural) and empty. the transition from that into the neon claustrophobia of the club is pretty awesome.

adam, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:24 (2 years ago) Permalink

love this fuckin movie

so sad because this happened at _my party_

mh, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 20:14 (2 years ago) Permalink

Boat scene is cool, but there's a chunk of stale exposition on the shore afterwords setting up the club sting that kind of kills it for me.

so I like this movie now!

Colin Farrell's hair though = so so so gross. It's like he poured crude oil over it.

It is so much fun to love this movie.

Eric H., Monday, 3 September 2012 13:32 (2 years ago) Permalink

and the film was a hit:

Miami Vice opened at No. 1 in the United States, knocking Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest out of the number one position at the box office that weekend, after Pirates led the box office for almost a full month.[20] In its opening weekend, the film grossed over $25.7 million at 3,021 theaters nationwide, with an average gross of $8,515 per theater.[21] The film would go on to earn $63.5 million domestically.[21] Miami Vice would fare better internationally. The films aired in 77 countries overseas, grossing $100,344,039 in its international run.[22] Overall the film grossed $164 million worldwide[21] helping to further surpass the reported $135 million budget.

The film stands as one of Michael Mann's top three most financially successful films, next to Heat and Collateral.[23]

i remember going to see this opening weekend and being forced to sit on the stairs

young money color me badd (J0rdan S.), Monday, 3 September 2012 13:39 (2 years ago) Permalink

The story I've told before is that when I went to see this some weekend afternoon, it was bright and sunny when I went in, and when I went out everything was drenched, there were branches, leaves and other refuse strewn about everywhere, street lights were blinking yellow. It was like some hurricane hit outside in the middle of the movie. Very memorable.

Hey, Jose Yero is starring (with Jimmy Smits) in a play at Steppenwolf, and I'm going to opening night next week. Will try to shake hands with Cochi Loco and will send him all your ILX love.

your damn bass clarinet (Eazy), Sunday, 30 December 2012 05:31 (1 year ago) Permalink

Yes it does. The lack of that opening on the American Blu Ray is why I refuse to plop 7 bucks down for it.

Gukbe, Sunday, 30 December 2012 05:34 (1 year ago) Permalink

really stoked that it's available in some form though, region free blu ray players are cheap these days

Holds up on the 12th viewing.

If only the climactic deal were underscored by the original "In The Air Tonight" instead of the nu-metal version...

You have to give Mann credit for working with Lisa Gerrard though.

LIMIT

So what's up?
Anything could be in those crates out of Odessa.
This one has too many moving parts, too many unknowns.
It's your call.
Where you at?
The message from Yero locates the agency and the office
where the leak is coming from. I call that progress.
So, let's take it to the limit one more time.

oh really? That makes sense. I tried my Day Today DVD on a plasma I used to have, and it worked fine. Tried it on an LCD some time later and it said it couldn't read the signal. But yeah, the HD thing makes sense. Will investigate!

I'm gonna tell you what's gonna happen
People are gonna come in here
You know what they gonna say?
They gonna look around and go
'Ola Hijo. That's some crazy motherfucking wallpaper
What is that? Jackson Pollock?'
No, viero.
That was José Yero.
Got splattered all over his own wall.

FADE IN:

EXT. OCEAN - CLOSE UP: WATER - MORNING LIGHT

We are at the delicate interface between ocean and
air...liquid and gas...the event horizon where molecules
evaporate. This interchange is ethereal. Then, low
frequencies rumble through depths...louder...closer, now...
And the ocean surface is torn by a 46-foot catamaran and the
ROAR of 2,700 horsepower, rocketing at us at 140 knots...
