Miami Vice (2006) mini movie review ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

★★★★★ ★★☆☆☆
Quality crime thriller that lost me a bit on the actual story (why does the mid-level bad guy sabotage his own shipment?) but is a serious, cool, great-looking movie. Everytime I watch a movie about 'organised' crime, and drug-smuggling in particular, I always wonder how on earth these people ever get any business done and their product to the consumer. Special mention for the teeth-rattling sound effect for the big sniper rifles.

Picture quality on the DVD is superb with the odd exception of the final credits which are small and blurry. The remainder of the show displays remarkable accuracy and detail at all times. Audio is generally good but the subwoofer whumps that come with the big sniper rifles are a bit special.
