Sorry, but A.O. Scott missed the boat here...

I've made it known that I'm no huge proponent of "Miami Vice," opening wide today. But reading A.O. Scott's review of the film this morning, I find myself highly irritated that he dumps so viciously on actor Colin Farrell. Farrell is the best part about "Vice," truly an actor amongst the best of his generation, yet Scott can't seem to focus on much beyond the poor lines Michael Mann gave him to utter in the film as valid assertion of his supposed failure to become a movie star. I'd venture he's most certainly on the rise, and he's inching into Christopher Walken territory, where he makes any film automatically a notch better simply due to his involvement.



You're absolutely right! I mention how good he is in my review of Miami Vice.
