Movie Review: Miami Vice

My Rating: 1Star

This afternoon I went to see the movie “Miami Vice” at JP Cinema, Causeway Bay.

One simple word “BAD”.

I must say this is one of the worst if not the worst movie I’ve seen this past 3 years.

I appears to me that they tried really hard to reproduce the 80’s TV series “Miami Vice“, which they should never had done. They should have try to produce a movie simply called “Miami Vice” about vice cops in Miami with the typical modern police story flare. At least that would have been much better than what was done.

Although in Hong Kong’s perspective, this is a foreign movie, but never thought that I would feel that way in the theater watching it. Through out the movie, there were many scenes I had not idea what the character were saying. I had to glance at the Chinese subtitles to try to figure out what I had missed. This is from a guy who does not really read Chinese.

For some reason most of the characters in the movie were mumbling their lines.

It was not long ago that I gave a movie 5 penguins, but it had been quite some time since I given any movie 1 penguin. That’s because in this case I do not have a rating that is lower.
