An outstanding performance by Bruce McGill makes for a great episode
29 May 2009 | by WhitehillSee all my reviews

Bruce McGill's outstanding performance makes this episode one of Miami Vice's best. In contrast to another reviewer's posting that this episode "hits the ground running and doesn't pause for breath," what makes this one so special is the pacing--the long sequences of atmospheric INaction and slow movements, coupled with a rich score and and the usual memorable photography that skates you by the bright bikini banquet on the beach, and moves, later on, to a long night drive with the camera (and you) following the dark convertible from above, past the street lights and blinking traffic signals of Miami. With all the characters in the various scenes (the station, a restaurant, the boat house on the water), McGill shines as the ex-Miami Vice crack detective whose comic impersonations (Groucho Marks, Peter Lorre, Boris Karlofff, among others) are in stark contrast to his infrequent rage and his hints of madness.
