Wonderful colorful characters such as Shoulders, Stooge, the Rodent, the Brow and Little Face, Flattop and Itchy are under control Alphonse "Big Boy" Caprice. Breathless Mahoney is abducted by Big Boy after killing Lips. Dick Tracy investigates the scene. The direction was sensational and acting was awesome since you have some talented artists on board. Dick Tracy is an enjoyable crime flick done with a certain style rarely seen on movies.

Bright and colorful real sets and visuals take front seat in an okay comic adaptation. Also a sort of throwback to old gangster films.

A perfect example of an enjoyable popcorn film. Very bright colors portray the look and feel of a comic book. Also, the editing feels like you're reading a comic book. It's full of really quick cuts. It feels like an old-time gangster movie. The big problem is Warren Beatty, not his acting, but the fact that he was actor, director, and producer, he had too many roles. If he just would've acted, and left the directing to someone else, this could've been better. Again, an enjoyable film from my youth, that probably doesn't hold up very well today.

BTW, unknown fact, this film won 3 Academy Awards, Best Art Decoration - Set Decoration, Best Makeup, Best Music, Original Song (Sooner or Later) I Always Get My Man. And Al Pacino was nominated for Best Supporting Actor which Joe Pesci...

Disappointing on so many levels

Dick Tracy is a maddening film. Why is it maddening? Well, it could have been so much better. It has stunning visual style, a great villainous performance from Al Pacino and a surprisingly good performance from Madonna of all people. However, the story is a joke. The gangsters in the film are so over the top stupid and this film includes basically every cliche about film noir.

Warren Beatty plays the title role of Dick Tracy, a workaholic detective trying to bring down Big Boy Caprice (Al Capone) a mob boss who eliminates his competition and wants to run all of the rackets in the city. Madonna plays Breathless Mahoney, a singer who is fixated on Tracy, much to the chagrin of Tracy's girlfriend Tess (Glenne Headly). Charlie Korsmo also stars as The Kid, an orphan taken in by Trac...

A good, fun adaptation

Based on the cult classic comic strip of the same name by Chester Gould, "Dick Tracy" brings the unusual world of one of the greatest fictional police detectives to life.

"Tracy" (Warren Beatty) is the best detective on the force. He is well-respected, and the prime target of the city's (unusual looking) criminal element.

One of the criminal element is "Alphonse 'Big Boy' Caprice" (Al Pacino), who wants to takeover the criminal underworld and control it with an iron fist. He has his hand in the law by having at least one high ranking official (Dick Van Dyke) in his pocket. His plan goes into motion when he has "Lips Manlis'" henchmen killed in St. Valentine's Day Massacre fashion, but it is witnessed by a street urchin who goes by the name of "The Kid" (Charlie Karsmo) who has no ...
