Imagine my surprise when I read Mr. Beatty was putting together a director's cut of this movie for a propose "Vista Series" release.
I read on various sites, including "Ain't It Cool," that 20-30 minutes would be added and the overall tone of the picture would be darker.
This was a couple of years ago and I haven't seen anything new on it.
I understand Mr. Beatty and Disney have gotten into some legal issues regarding who has rights over the film. I just hope they are resolved quickly and Mr. Beatty can get the Director's Cut out.
I love the first cut of the movie, but felt at times they were holding back on certain themes in order to bring in as many people as possible to make the picture profitable. If you look at the original comic, it was violent.
I loved Beatty as the honest cop, Madonna as the dame and Al Pacino as the ganster Big Boy. I also loved the fact they shot it in the basic color scheme of the comic.
The great things we are discovering with the DVD format is that now both the studios and the directors can have their cake and eat it too.
Studios can put out films at a length that can maximize ticket sales and directors can present their films as they intended on DVD for the people who want to see it.
I am really looking forward to the day we can see the director's cut of this film.
Disney and Mr. Beatty - DON'T KEEP US WAITING TOO MUCH LONGER!!!!!!!!!
Some of the story doesn't hold up for me any more - and the overdone makeup - which makes nearly all the male characters look really ugly - is a bit over the top but the two other things which made me love this film (besides seeing Beatty's A-list friends Dustin Hoffman and Al Pacino eating up the scenery)are the sexy double-entendres by Madonna and Stephen Sondheim's new songs (including "Sooner or Later"). When Madonna is on the screen it burns sex and the Sondheim songs are some of his most tuneful (IMHO).
Yes, EVERYONE will gripe that there are no extras - not even a trailer! - but as long as you know that going in, at least you have this fun film - in a nice print - to enjoy.
I hope you found this review both informative and helpful.
This is a movie that you can watch with your kids, being that the rating of the movie is only PG. There is violence, but it is not graphic and is even really cartoonish at times. There is some sensuality in it...As I said, the DVD isn't loaded with any special features, but the crystal clear picture quality and phenominal sound makes up for it. The movie can be played in DTS, which sounds really fantastic...But the picture is the show stopper. The colorful and dark settings really stand out like never before. There is no way in the world that any VHS could do this movie the justice it deserves.
"Dick Tracy" is a great movie that continues to entertain people of all ages. Filled with action, suspence, and a lot of humor, this movie does not disappoint. If you have not seen the movie already, check it out as soon as you can.
Acting is mostly hammy but again this movie makes no excuses for being cartoonish. Warren Beatty does decent work probably the best real acting job next to the kid. Dustin Hoffman did a good job as Mumbles and surprisingly Madonna wasn't too bad.
It's an average movie, one you can't take seriously but I don't think that is the intent of the film anyway. I think they mostly set out to make it as close to a comic book as possible so everything is done big. It's a neat mob gangster movie, though it doesn't really hold up to today's standards. Fans of the mobster genre can herald this as a family friendly introduction to the genre. It is possibly to watch this with any age group, there are guns but no gore.

Dick Tracy, probably the most unique comic book film I've ever seen. True to form, the costumes and sets come in bright, bold, primary colors like those found only in the comic... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Jonathan
