Director Michael Mann has confirmed that his latest film work of "Miami Vice" has successfully cleared censors in China.

The road seems smooth enough for "Miami Vice" to pass through as it crosses to China. Despite its content that includes steamy love scenes between Colin Farrell and Chinese actress Gong Li, the movie has surprisingly been granted green light to enter the country, which is known to be very strict in importing foreign films.

Based on the report compiled by The Beijing News on Sunday, August 27, "Miami" director Michael Mann has revealed that the flick has cleared censors in China to be screened in the theaters all over the country. Though so, it was unclear whether censors asked that the film be edited in any way.

China previously banned Rob Marshall's "Memoirs of a Geisha", which also stars Gong, reportedly because of concerns about stoking anti-Japanese sentiment. There were also concerns about scenes in "Mission: Impossible 3" that shows tattered underwear hanging from laundry lines in the city of Shanghai, but fortunately the flick was approved.

A production of Universal Pictures, "Miami Vice" is an adaptation of the 1980s TV series of the same name and revolves around the case on a drug smuggling operation handled by two undercover police officers. Here Farrell's character, Sonny Crockett, has an affair with the mistress of drug syndicate's boss, played by Gong.
