Don Johnson Versus Colin Farrel


Who was the better Crockett? I'd have to go with DJ on this one. Farrel acted the part like a zombie and he played second fiddle to that gangsta thug Jaime Foxx.

Farrell and Foxx were given nothing to do in the 2006 version, it was nice to look at but I was so disappointed with that film, probably the most disappointing film of the 2000s for me with Michael Mann directing I was expecting something on the the level of Heat or Collateral.

reply

I completely agree. Couldn't have been more disappointed at Mann after how incredible Heat and Collateral were. Blackhat was worse, even further of a letdown.

reply

My expectations were lowered drastically after Miami Vice, I remember going to see Public Enemies with low expectations and being surprised at how much I liked it but it’s still not in the same league as his other stuff, haven’t seen Blackhat so can’t comment.

I find it remarkable that Michael Mann didn't really understand Miami Vice is steeped in the 80's. The clothes, the cars, the music, the editing, the ludicrous plots and stories. That was Miami Vice. How did he miss that?

While the movie may be good; it was not Miami Vice.
