Watched this yesterday and was very disappointed. Possibly the worst film by Michael Mann that I've seen. A very vague plot, with Farrell and Foxx giving indifferent performances.

Just to think that Mann used to make the TV series, to generate money for his more artful cinema films.

I personally think Michael Mann, while very talented, is outrageously overrated.

there, I said it.

Oh, it's definitely Mann's worst.
But then it's got Colin Farell so what do ya expect?

I love the television show and think it's some of the best corn ever made.

But from the previews alone I realized that Mann seemed to forget what made the television show so fun. I have no desire to see this movie.
