Dank reworking of the stylish 1980s TV show as two Miami cops (Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx at less than their best) go undercover for the FBI to infiltrate an international drug trafficking ring from South America, though one of them falls for a glamorous drug smuggler (Gong Li), with identities becoming muddled in the process. Director Michael Mann, who produced the original series, has opted for a gritty, realistic presentation this time, while the story line is overly complex, the dialogue dull, and the elements that made the series appealing completely jettisoned. Sporadic, but ugly violence. profanity, rough and crude language, sexual encounters with partial and rear nudity, innuendo, and lots of drug dealing, capped by crime without punishment. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
