A character pulls the cocking handle of his MP5 submachine gun. The MP5's cocking handle is only used when reloading, where it is pulled back to a catch before the new magazine is inserted, and then it is released from the catch. The cocking handle is never simply pulled back and then released. See more »
Smooth direction and Bruce Willis as a heavy make this a winner
From the beginning, the writing staff made it a point to show that "Miami Vice" isn't just about nose candy. So far, we've seen an X-rated movie baron, a contract killer, loan-sharking, and 'No Exit' centers on an arms dealer. And we're only seven episodes into the first season.
And who better to play that low life gun runner than Bruce Willis, who turns in one of the series' best heavy performances. Guy's a real scum bag, and that machismo is icing on the cake. He's got an untouchable air about him and that results in an utterly bleak ending. But the episode as a whole is a winner as Crockett and Tubbs mount a skilled offensive. We're watching these guys do what they do best.
