DVD Review: Miami Vice
Movie •••½ Picture •••• Sound •••• Extras ••••
Miami Vice has the kind of moody electronic score that accompanies most Mann films, with well-chosen hard rock used to add a sense of dread, and it all sounds dense and powerful in this 5.1-channel mix. And just like the best of his films, the writer/director's commentary is packed full of information and insight. The 45 minutes of documentary segments - examining topics like real-life undercover cops and the incredibly fast racing boats that appear in the movie - are equally effective. [R] English and French, Dolby Digital 5.1; letterboxed (2.35:1) and anamorphic widescreen; dual layer.
