What's wrong with all the critics? Always comparing to that 80's show. Sure the movie has the same title, pastel colors here and there. But it's different, it's really good.   Time moved on guys.   This is the third time I watched the movie. It is a Michael Mann film, meaning it's perfect. Terrific script, great action, beautiful music, wonderful acting, perfect frames.  Just don't start comparing. Trust Michael Mann's professionalism. After all he's done Collateral, …

Never having been a fan of the TV series (but I confess to never having seen an entire episode), I had no expectations going in, except to be entertained with Mann's customary flair for terse dialogue and stunning visuals.

The original TV series of the same name was a glamorous exploration of Miami, both the legal and illegal side. This included scenes of the various neighborhoods, interactions with locals of various ethnicities such as Cubans, Puerto Ricans, Haitians, whites, etc..., and run-ins with criminals of various flavors. Along the way, the show had side stories dealing with local politics, local communities, and local cultures. This movie ignores all that and focuses solely on the drug world of Miami and …

I realize that when a remake is made from a television series (or a movie) there is some element of creative liberties. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. Many people will report that this new rendition is either too much like the original or such an insult to the original it is heresy. I have to be honest I am not really thrilled about taking old television shows and remaking them. This type of exercise demonstrates that Hollywood is really running low on the idea tank for new films.    I …
