Miami Vice

 (2006)

Miami Vice Blu-ray delivers great video and reference-quality audio in this exceptional Blu-ray release

Ricardo Tubbs (Jamie Foxx) is urbane and dead smart. He lives with Bronx-born intel analyst Trudy (Naomie Harris) as they work undercover transporting drug loads into South Florida to identify a group responsible for three murders. Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell), who may seem unorthodox, but is actually procedurally sound, is charismatic and flirtatious until he gets romantically entangled with Isabella (Gong Li), the Chinese-Cuban wife of an arms and drugs trafficker. The intensity of this case pushes Crockett and Tubbs out onto the edge where identity and fabrication become blurred, where cop and player become one--especially for Crockett in his romance with Isabella and for Tubbs in the provocation of an assault on those he loves. Working deeply undercover is dangerous and alluring...especially when Crockett and Tubbs go where their badges don't count...

For more about Miami Vice and the Miami Vice Blu-ray release, see Miami Vice Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.5 out of 5.

Miami Vice Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Miami Vice is presented on Blu-ray in its original theatrical aspect ratio of 2.35:1 using the VC-1 compression codec. Much has been made of the visual look at this movie and complaints have echoed across just about every internet forum where Miami Vice has been mentioned. Michael Mann and cinematographer Dion Bebee shot the movie entirely on HD video, much like Mann's prior film Collateral. The outrage that has erupted over Miami Vice seems to stem from its noisy and gritty look. Indeed, it is a messy looking movie. Noise is extremely prevalent throughout the image, especially scenes that take place in darkened rooms and at night. Those types of scenes make up about 90 percent of the movie. Colors are also desaturated and the entire film has an almost monochromatic feel to it. Yes, Miami Vice looks terrible, but it's supposed to. Anyone who saw the feature theatrically probably noticed the visual look of the film. This is not an instance where a bad encode has been thrust upon the public. In fact, I'm of the opinion that this Blu-ray release of Miami Vice is extremely accurate to the theatrical presentation.

There is an almost endless list of digital artifacts present in Miami Vice. Obviously, noise is the primary cause of all the complaints while jaggies and strange color timing also add fuel to the fire. Of course, this is all intentional in Miami Vice so this is somewhat of a critic-proof transfer. Any critique of the look of the movie would have to be aimed at Mann and Bebee and that's something I'm not willing to do since I actually enjoy the unique look of this picture. One can certainly say that there aren't any other films in recent memory that share Miami Vice's distinctive look.


Miami Vice Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  5.0 of 5

Universal brings Miami Vice to Blu-ray with a sensational DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack. To say that this is an explosive track would be the understatement of the year. Again, I appreciate Universal's commitment to delivering each and every one of their Blu-ray releases with a DTS lossless track. The previous DVD version of Miami Vice was problematic in a number of areas. Dialog was often difficult to understand and much of the soundtrack devolved into a muddy mess. That's not the case here as dialog is much clearer and the picture's many action sequences are delivered with a clarity and precision that is truly staggering.

Perhaps most impressive is the outstanding bass response of this track. Take for example, a scene near the beginning of the film where a car full of FBI agents is mowed down by .50 calibre machine guns. Every crackle, pop and explosion is felt throughout the room with an almost gut-busting intensity. Speedboats in Miami Vice growl as though they are racing through your living room. Everything about this track is visceral and completely involving. My normal listening level of -8 from reference was far too loud for Miami Vice and I ended up listening to the movie at a considerably lower volume. Directional effects are also equally impressive with an abundance of three dimensional pans and precise surround imaging. Miami Vice scores as one of the finest Blu-ray audio experiences of the year. Highly Recommended!
