Miami Vice (2006) Theatrical Cut

While going through my HD-DVDs I noticed the Miami Vice combo has the Unrated cut on the HD-DVD side of the disc with the original R-rated theatrical cut on the DVD side.

My Miami Vice DVD and Blu-ray only have the unrated version. I'm just curious if this HD-DVD is the only physical version that ever contained the original theatrical cut?

If I remember, I think Michael Mann mentioned the theatrical cut was his studio-rushed version and not how he really wanted it.

He should've shot it on film, not HD. He was once a great filmmaker but now is kind of a joke...Public Enemies should've ruled, given the awesome book it was based on and the subject matter but he f**ed but shooting it in HD....So many other filmmaker could've made that movie work but he just screwed it up...And I'm a giant fan of Heat...just wish he had done something similar but he was too lazy to do so...

Mann would say that about every movie he's ever made. He's an incessant tinkerer and makes changes to all of his old movies every time he looks at them.

Shooting on film or digital has nothing to do with execution. I was very interested when I first read that he was going to shoot on digital instead of film. It was a breakthrough, but unfortunately he was cut short by the limitations of how good digital film could be at that time. Darkís were absolute crap, then you magnify that on the big screen it made it even worse. Now itís flawless, but then again he made the movie in 2006.

Yeah, thereís like 4-6 cuts of Mohicans. He jacks with cuts and all sorts of things in just about all of his films.
