Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! This week's featured movie is a movie that I knew the whole back story by watching the original television show. This featured movie is, Miami Vice.
Miami Vice follows two Miami-Dade police detectives who are partners. They are Sonny Crockett (Colin Farrell) and Rico Tubbs (Jamie Foxx). They have been partners for a while and when they get a frantic call from one of their former informants that a drug bust has gone terribly bad they know they have to respond. What they find is not what they expected. When they learn that the FBI is involved and their looking at multiple drug cartels, the detective duo wants to get involved and help.

Sonny and Rico go undercover by posing as experienced drug runners who are looking for a bigger score. When they get involved with kingpin Montoya, Sonny runs into something he didn't expect. He meets Montoya's financial advisor Isabella (Gong Li) and is immediately attracted to her. He knows that she works to distribute drugs but he's still attracted to her. Immediately they begin a love affair both knowing that they have no future. At the same time his partner Tubbs is beginning to wonder if Sonny has went in too deep this time undercover.

As their collaborative effort with the FBI gets more underway, the danger grows. Will Sonny and Rico get out alive or will one decide to change sides? If you've never seen this movie watch it. If you loved the old television show, then you'll definitely enjoy this new movie.
