JUSTIFIED

I know what scene you are talking about. It's with Trudy in the trailer, and her partner has the H&K G36 trained on the guy with the detonator, and she tells him where she is going to shoot him.

 

The reason it's so close is because it's a technique that's really taught to snipers and special forces, and it's used too. It was also used in Taken at the end. Mick Gould worked on both Miami Vice and Taken as the trainer and advisor.

 

Michael Mann didn't invent it, I promise. :) He's worked with Gould for years to train his actors.

No, I know it's a real technique, but the execution of is dead on the same in both cases. I've seen Taken and while the scene at the end was similar, it didn't have that hmmm... factor for me.

 

It's like a comic book swipe file and if you'd said "the reason those images look the same it's cause they're both of Wolverine", well, there's a million ways to draw Wolverine, you know? :)

Well, I didn't say they were the same. I said they were close. We'll have to agree to disagree on this one, because I don't think the execution is dead on the same. The scene in Miami Vice was incredibly tense and not comedic in the least. And Miami Vice wasn't the first film to do it.

 

And I'd never, ever compare the scenes to a swipe. I'm an artist, so I have pretty strong feelings about swiping. I'd never say anything even close to what you posted.

Just picked up the season one set and am half way through with my wife. She's hooked as well. I have her hooked on this and Spartacus.
