Default Does the 2006 Movie Get too Much of a Bad Rap?

1. The people who were expecting an action flick in the sense of Bad Boys. I do like the Bad Boys movies, but I wasn't really expecting it to be remotely similar.

2. The people who wanted it to be set in the 80s. It didn't matter the time setting. The A-Team was set in modern times and the movie was good.

However, I did want to see a gritty cop drama with a touch of action or suspense, but when you compare the TV show to the movie, it doesn't seem right. For starters, Colin Farrell didn't seem like Crockett to me, nor did Jamie Foxx as Tubbs. Plus, you had Tubbs with Trudy, when the two weren't together in the series, and don't even get me started on that cringeworthy sex scene. I have a feeling that they wanted something to replace the Gina/Sonny deal early on in the series, but I didn't find Trudy/Rico to be believable whatsoever. Let's not forget that Gina, Zito, and Switek didn't play that big of roles in the movie, despite being prominent characters in the series. I can say the same thing about Castillo, who was also seen as an afterthought in the movie.

Years ago, I used to work as a video store clerk. I often found that people were looking to be most adventurous in their film choices on Saturday afternoon. So I would take time and give them something they haven’t seen before. So this bi-weekly column, “The Saturday Afternoon Shift” is a series of essays about films I think viewers would be interested in seeing, films you perhaps haven’t heard of or overlooked in your search for entertainment. Today’s film is Michael Mann’s adaptation of the classic 80s cop show for the new millenia, Miami Vice.

Miami Vice movie was good and i don't care if people didn't like it. I liked it and that's all that matters. I bought it on dvd. Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx did a good job. I didn't have a problem with Jamie and the cute black woman's naked kissing scene in the shower and in the bed. I can't think of her name but i saw her in a couple of movies like Mandela with Idris Elba, last James Bond movie and Street Kings with Keanu Reeves and Forest Whitaker.
