3.0 out of 5 stars A CARTOONISH AND AMUSING FILM. March 7 2004
Format:DVD
"Dick Tracy" is a movie that looked better in 1990, but still is entertaining and has interesting things, for instance, the production design, which makes that the movie feels like a mixture between a cartoon and a comic book. The costumes also are good, as well as the makeup.
The most surprising thing in "Dick Tracy" is the fact that the impressing cast (which includes great, great actors like Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman, James Caan and Paul Sorvino) portrays cartoonish characters, some of them characterized in a kinda cheesy way, however, you can tell that these great actors had a great time when they filmed "Dick Tracy", it's evident how much fun they had in the making process of the movie.
Warren Beatty is adequate as Dick Tracy, the main character in the movie, Beatty also was the director of "Dick Tracy". Charlie Korsmo did a good job as "The Kid", who is an interesting character and he brings out the more human side of Dick Tracy, he becomes almost a surrogate father for "the Kid". Madonna also appears in the film, and even though her musical contribution is bigger than her performance, her character is a key for the development of the plot.
"Dick Tracy" is an amusing movie, specially for those who enjoy film adaptations for comic books, or for those who saw this movie when they were kids (like myself) and feel a bit of nostalgia.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dick Tracy (1990) Jan. 12 2004
Format:DVD
Here she is again, folks: Madonna in yet another feature film. This time, she plays the villainess, Breathless Mahoney, a nightclub singer, who now works for Big Boy Caprice (played by the legendary Al Pacino).
Warren Beatty, Madonna's latest real life flame at the time, is in the role of ole Dick himself. Dick is in a relationship with Tess Trueheart, but Tess doesn't know how true this love for Dick is. Dick has been after Big Boy Caprice for quite some time. While on his way home from a long day, Dick runs into The Kid. He picks him and let's him stay awhile while he can find an orphange for The Kid to stay in.
Madonna plays Breathless Mahoney, the villainess who works for Big Boy Caprice. Despite the fact she works for his enemy, Breathless falls madly in love with Dick, which puts Dick and Tess' relationship to the test: Will Dick choose Breathless or Tess?
A pretty far-fetched film, but still quite enjoyable. Warren Beatty may have been great in the role of Dick Tracy, but the way I look at, it was really Madonna's performance as Breathless Mahoney and Al Pacino's performance as Big Boy Caprice that steal the spotlight of the show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Visually Stunning But Exhaustingly Static Sept. 5 2003
Format:DVD
Less than a decade earlier, Warren Beatty directed himself to considerable critical acclaim in the film REDS. But with 1990's DICK TRACY he stumbled badly: although it received considerable hype and numerous critical accolades for its art and sound design, the film fizzled at the box office, and these days you are more likely to find the film in a retail bargain bin than in some one's personal collection.
Even so, DICK TRACY isn't as bad as its detractors often claim. The film has several things going for it, most particularly that deservedly lauded art design, which seeks to recreate the look and feel of "golden age" comic books. Built in largely primary color and with a tremendous sense of line, the designs are among the most striking of the 1990s. The make-up designs, which go to considerable length to recreate the look of the comic book characters, are also enjoyable.
The film also has several memorable performances, and the most notable among these comes from someone who is has had little success on the big screen: Madonna. As femme fatale "Breathless Mahoney," she looks good, has the best lines and delivers them with considerable spirit, and flawlessly performs the complex musical numbers specifically written for her by the legendary Stephen Sondheim. ("Sooner or Later" may be single best thing she's done on film.) Glenne Headly, as Tracy's steady girl Tess, also makes an impression, as do many of the cameo performers, who range from Dustin Hoffman to Kathy Bates and from Estelle Parsons to James Caan.
But for all its memorable visuals and the occasional outstanding performance, DICK TRACY is an incredibly static film.

Back in 1931,an Oklahoma born comic strip writer/artist named Chester Gould moved to Chicago.While trying to ply his trade,he became fascinated by the gang wars that were fast becoming apart of city life.After all,this was the city Al Capone ruled like King Arthur in Camelot.At the time,Capone's empire was under fire from the G-Men.Specifically,a young,head-strong G-Man named Eliot Ness(Maybe you've heard of him?).It was from this legendary rivalry that inspired Gould to create crimebuster Dick Tracy.Gould used real life gangsters like Capone,Dillinger,"Pretty Boy" Floyd,and "Machine Gun" Kelly as inspiration for a grotesque band of outlaws like "Big Boy" Caprice,Flattop,Pruneface,Mumbles,and hundreds of others.Gould's gripping crime dramas,colorful villians,and unique gadgets made it one of the era's most popular comics.Rivaling Superman and Batman.However,this did not transalate to big screen success(with the exception of a bunch of RKO serials).Then actor/director Warren Beatty,who grew up reading the Dick Tracy comics,decided that the time was right for the "squared jawed detective" to get the big budget blockbuster treatment.As a fan of the Tracy comics(I became a fan because of the movie),I thought he did a good job with the movie.It's rich and lively and Al Pacino's "Big Boy" is a terrific send-up of his larger than life baddies like Michael Corleone and "Scarface" (Which is what Al said he was doing).Madonna also sizzles as songstess "Breathless" Mahoney.Don't laugh,but she does a good acting job.After all,she's playing a singing,sex siren....Oh....I forgot....she does that anyway!Although a variety of Hollywood legends like Dick Van Dyke,Dustin Hoffman,James Caan,and R.G. Armstrong make memoralbe appearnces("Bonnie & Clyde" alumnists Estelle Parsons and Michael J. Read more ›

This film comes together much better than I expected. I think that Warren Beatty, an otherwise terrific actor, lacks something as Dick Tracy. He's too sober. Read more
