Based on the 1980s TV action/drama, this update focuses on vice detectives Crockett and Tubbs as their respective personal and professional lives become dangerously intertwined.
During filming in Ciudad del Este (Paraguay) the crew came across bootleg and other illegal merchandise for sale in a similar fashion to that of the film's theme. Michael Mann purchased a copy of Collateral (2004) for two dollars while he was there.
Det. James 'Sonny' Crockett:
Why do I get the feeling everyone knows we're here 15 blocks out?
Det. Ricardo Tubbs: 'Cause everyone knows we're here 15 blocks out.
When Sonny takes down the guard at the trailer park, he gets up and his vest straps fall off, but one second later we see that it back on yet he never reattached it.
Although there were no opening credits in the theatrical release, the Unrated Director's Cut contains credits over a new sequence that opens the film. Once the credits are done, the film begins in the nightclub scene that opened the theatrical version.
