His relentless crusade against crime becomes even more difficult when he gets saddled with an engaging orphan and meets seductive and sultry Breathless Mahoney, a torch singer determined to get the best of Tracy.

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.
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.
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.Read more ›
