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.
Just before the climactic shoot-out, "In the Air Tonight" by Nonpoint can be heard. The original Phil Collins version was featured prominently in the TV series (Unrated Director's Cut only).

The black Dodge Charger has a SRT badge on the front grill meaning it has a 6.1L V8 engine. On the side quarter panels it say 3.5, which means the car would have a V6.

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.
The unrated director's cut adds 7 minutes of unseen footage:
