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.
Rather unusually for a Hollywood movie Colin Farrell is 11 years younger than his on screen female love interest Li Gong.
Det. Ricardo Tubbs:
The topography of Colombia's northernmost peninsula known as Guajira is basically an arid desert, quite different from the jungle backdrop used to describe the smuggler's airplane. This backdrop would most likely fit the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, where the "Santa Marta Gold" marijuana is produced.
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.
