5.0 out of 5 stars The real version., 4 Aug 2009
This review is from: Miami Vice [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Had to come across the pond for this one. Only the director's cut in blu in the states. Nice to finally have the correct version.

The USA has what I feel is a superior re-edited version. It's called the 'Unrated Directors Edition' although it's only a couple of minutes longer. The film has been thoroughly re imaged with some new footage put in and some original footage taken out. (For example, the film starts out in the deep ocean with a speedboat race..... rather than just launching into the middle of a dance club) Even the music track has been shifted round and changed. The result is a very different experience to the original theatrical version. IMHO the new version is the better film. Miami Vice was a great film (eventually) but this blu ray edition is the wrong version I think. The Director's cut is now available on Blu Ray 'across the pond" at AMAZON USA..... you know which version I prefer.... but each to his own I guess...)

Dillinger says:
no no, the original poster is right, the theatrical cut (released in the UK) is the better version. everything in the re-cut version is superfluous and over-explanatory (and Mann makes known his preference for the theatrical cut in the commentary).
