Miami Blues (1990) Film Review


Junior (Alec Baldwin) has just got out of prison and gets himself to Miami where he meets a young prostitute, Susie (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and sets them into a delightful house and ‘normal’ life. But there is a fly in the ointment: Sgt Hoke Moseley (Fred Ward) is after him.

So, I watched this film because I felt like watching a young Alec Baldwin, and I have to say that, being so familiar with the older version, it’s kind of odd. But Junior is a great character and Baldwin is fantastic in the role. Is it a good film? Well, yes, I kind of think so. Nothing in the film seems overly original, but yet it all comes together. I liked it. I liked it a lot.
