In the film, Sonny and Rico are enlisted by the FBI to infiltrate a Colombian drug cartel after a botched undercover drug operation gets three Agents and a former Police informant killed. They decide to run transportation of cocaine into Miami for the cartel in order to get to the man running the Miami operation, Jose Yero (John Ortiz), and, later on, ''his'' boss, drug lord Arcangel de Jesus Montoya (Luis Tosar). Complications arise as they get deeper into their undercover identities and Sonny falls in love with Isabella (Gong Li), the accountant wife of Montoya.

Shot on location in the Carribbean, Uruguay, Paraguay, the Dominican Republic and South Florida, the film had a TroubledProduction from early on including lost filming to hurricanes, JamieFoxx's ego, security issues that ultimately forced [[RealLifeWritesThePlot a complete rewrite of the ending]]. The film was released to mixed critical reviews but was relatively successful at the box office and was Creator/MichaelMann's third most financially successful film, behind ''Film/{{Heat}}'' and ''Film/{{Collateral}}''.

* RaceLift: Castillo is now black, possibly Dominican instead of whatever unspecified Latino nationality he'd been in the TV show.

** This is more a result of the director's own preferences than anything else. MichaelMann tends to shoot his films in those tones, and he also worked on the series.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: After a shooting incident on the Dominican Republic set, Jamie Foxx packed up and left, refusing to work outside the US. This forced a complete rewrite of the film's ending. While one crew member publicly stated that the revised ending was "much less dramatic", [[WordOfGod Mann]], who had written endings for both Miami and Paraguay considered it to be better because it "brought all the conflicting characters together in one arena".
