Brief Synopsis:
The Vice squad has a new commanding officer, Lieutenant Martin Castillo, a tough ex-DEA with a dark past. Crockett and Tubbs stumble upon a plot to heist a hotel vault and attempt to intervene, leading to the discovery of a much larger and more dangerous criminal enterprise involving an old nemesis of Castillo's from his days in the Golden Triangle drug zone. The Vice team is quickly forced into a game of cat-and-mouse with a deadly foe.
Intention:
This is the second part of the Miami Vice trilogy, a fanedit series of the best TV show from the 80's, full of fast cars, flashy lights, pastel suits, great music and bad dialogue. This film focuses on arguably the best-potrayed character on the show, Marty Castillo, played by Edward James Olmos who won an Emmy and 2 Golden Globes for his run on Miami Vice. Recolored, regraded, and with revamped audio, this edit is for fans and newcomers alike, faithful to the tone and story of the show, presenting the Golden Traingle arc in one film.
Additional Notes:
The edit is sourced from the DVD version of Miami Vice, as there is no Blu Ray release as of October 2014. As such the image is in 4:3 ratio and SD. The episodes used to make this edit were "Score/Golden Triangle p1" and "Golden Triangle p2". Also uses bits from "One Eyed Jack" and "Made for Each Other"
Other Sources:
Closing credits song: "Tomorrow" by Miami Nights 1984

It's always good to see the vintage and versatile offerings of Olmos, and this edit packs a really hefty punch. With some inspired touches (the opening and the regrading) and seamless removal of promotional consideration, there's a lot to take in. This is something that's hard to describe at times because the experiance speaks better volumes than a couple of paragraphs. Do yourself a favor and let Ranger take you back to an adrenaline-charged era.
