The comic book movie before comic book movies were ran into the ground. One of the best from it's time period! So glad this is on bluray now. The direction, score, colors, music, practical effects and action scenes make this one of the best pulp action/comic book movies of all time!

I had to revisit this movie almost 20 years later
to really grasp the film makers vision of this old
comic book classic!--Warren Beatty, Al Pacino,
Dustin Hoffman and the other cast members all pull off
stellar depictions of the classic arch-villians that generations
from the late 30's to the 60's grew up on!
The real catalyst that brought all of this together
though was the excellent make-up, costuming and cinematography!
--Just stellar!!--Even Madonna did a good job as "Breathless Mohoney"
--Her and Beatty were hot and heavy during this time
and she was in the midst of her "Blonde Ambition
/ Truth Or Dare" period!!--Can U Say Femme Fatale?
If you get into comic characters brought to life in
a believable fashion, then this is great for your collection!

Blu-ray is quite kind to this extremely colorful film. And being a "period film", there is little that causes it to look dated. I've seen this video on VHS and DVD, and there's no question about it: this blu-ray transfer looks and sounds incredibly good. The soundtrack won't blow you away like today's films with heavy low-end, but this blu-ray version is definitely worth the upgrade if you still have the DVD. The digital copy is decent, but can't compare to the 1080p blu-ray disc version.

Sure at its release it underwhelmed at the box-office even with all the star power this movie brings. However, if you take it for what it is supposed to be, its a great family classic especially if you enjoyed the comics.

This is one of those films from the late '80s/early '90s era of movies that a lot of people go "oh yeah! I remember Dick Tracy" a fun, stylish movie that has some of the more colorful set pieces and costumes than any other comic book movie. It looks fantastic in 1080p, and it;s fun watching it again, I was just disappointed that were no extras, or deleted scenes (supposedly about 30 minutes of deleted material from the original cut) but still a great movie to relive again

When my daughter brings my 8 grans with her to my house, we always watch their favorite movie, Dick Tracy. We sometimes watch it twice, they like it so much. I tell them it was based on me, their Granddad, and that their Grandma was Breathless Mahoney but they got the fact wrong. They don't know the difference...they're kids!

They always get terrified when the scary villians come on so much that they cry in terror, but I find it is helpful to explain this is what people looked like before plastic surgery was all the rage.

Great story, happy ending, good for all ages from child to adult granddad. Look for the surprise cameo from someone you aren't expecting!

Dick Tracy is THE best comic book movie ever made. For that matter, one of the best made, period. There is so much to say about this film, that it is hard to point out the best things about it.
The art direction, the attention to detail, the music, the acting, the makeup, the story. I could go on and on. You simply can't take your eyes off of it.
This is how films used to be made and it is sad that only a few films since have come close to the "tongue-in-cheek" style of this film (The Mummy most recently.)
Al Pacino steals the film! To me, this is HIS film. And I was also impressed by Madonna and Glenne Headly.
It is hard to say why most people didn't like this film. Was it not violent enough? Did they want nudity? Did they want something vulgar? Well, if so, they wont get it with this film!
I give this film an A+.

Cute plot and novel use of primary color cinematography and costumes. The lead actress “Tess” steals the show, and the ending is a surprise.

Shame on you

The film captures the sense of the comic book well. Visually, Dick Tracy is stunning. The use of color and the music helped me enjoy the film a bit more by enhancing the comic book or cartoon like images.

Is this a film for a serious film person? Probably not. It is a good Summer escape film and that is all it needs to be for me.
