Williamson and Busey: the next Crockett and Tubbs?
"South Beach" is a film noir film about two ex-football players turned private eyes: Fred Williamson plays Mack Derringer, a smooth yet sloppy guy who likes to use a big gun to take out the trash; and Gary Busey is Lenny, Derringer's partner who likes to walk on the wild side. Together, when not solving cases in Miami, they play golf on the sunny Florida countryside. Well, that's basically one half of the film. But the other half is a very confusing mystery that involves the sultry Vanity who hires our heroes on a case for her. They wind up battling guys like Sam Jones and Henry Silva. This is a messy film, with not a lot of character development. One part of the movie, Peter Fonda shows up, for unknown reasons, to help Busey and Williamson. No, this is not a "Miami Vice" clone, because "M.V." has more logic and sense, and more organized characterization. Avoid this film if you're in the mood for an intelligent film. I don't know why I watched "South Beach". I was flipping through TV one night and I ran into this flick on TNT. I decided to watch it, and this show gave me a headache. What an idiot I am!
