Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 05/03/1990
"...An intensely exciting slice of imagist pulp shrewdly attuned to the jumpy rhythms of its back-street milieu..."
USA Today - 04/10/1990
"...It boasts a welcome 'edge'..."
New York Times - 04/20/1990
"...MIAMI BLUES is best appreciated for the performances of its stars and for the kinds of funny, scene-stealing peripheral touches that keep it lively..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/19/1996
"...Baldwin's feral smolder makes it something to see..." -- Rating: B
Uncut - 10/01/2004
"Understated but genuinely sharp, MIAMI BLUES is one cult you may want to consider joining."
