    Synopsis


    Dick Tracy
    Warren Beatty directed and starred in this big-budget action comedy featuring Chester Gould's square-jawed, two-dimensional comic strip detective. Ruthless gangster Big Boy Caprice (Al Pacino) touches off a gang war against underworld boss Lips Manlis (Paul Sorvino), with Big Boy and his minions rubbing out enough of Manlis's goons (along with Manlis himself) to take over his nightclub, and a healthy percentage of the city's criminal activities in the process. Caprice also gains proprietary rights to Manlis's girlfriend, nightclub chanteuse Breathless Mahoney (Madonna). Big Boy's next move to is unite the rest of the city's crooks under his command; this wave of corruption attracts the attention of lawman Dick Tracy, who is determined to smash Caprice's criminal network once and for all. As Tracy plots to put Big Boy behind bars where he belongs, Breathless uses her considerable charms in an attempt to sway Tracy from the path of righteousness; this causes no small amount of anxiety for Tracy's long-suffering female companion, Tess Trueheart (Glenne Headly), and the street-smart kid (Charlie Korsmo) they've been keeping an eye on. The various bad guys, heavily made up to resemble Gould's cartoon characters (though Beatty is not made up to resemble Tracy), include Dustin Hoffman, James Caan, R.G. Armstrong, and William Forsythe. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Good Movie, Wrong Product

      The movie dick tracy is a really good movie. Set design and costumes are right out of the comics. The issue is that if you order the blu ray with digital copy you do not get the digital copy. I had to call best buy support multiple times. First time they said they sent the wrong movie and had it resent. Second time i was told that the version with the digital copy was discontinued and they didnt have it anymore. They said it was an issue with the website and offered me a 5 dollar credit if i wanted to keep it. I kept the movie since it is a great film. But if your interested in the digital copy do not buy this version as you will end up disappointed and tired of the run around.

      I loved Dick Tracy when it came out. Saw it in theaters more times than I can count. Once I saw it was on blu-ray, ow cold I not buy it? The transfer is great, the colors are vibrant and the blacks aren't crazy milky or off. 5/5 Audio is great too. Really can't find any complaints about it, everything is clear and the explosions and gunfire sound better then I remember on DVD, so thats a plus. 5/5 Extras....non existent. Which is saddening, but that could just be me and others that like the supplementals on discs. Other than the extras, this is a fine release, with great audio and visual transfers. Even Al Pacino's sometime over the top performances are great nostalgia for fans.

      Warren Beatty Does Dick Tracy Proud

      Everything about this movie is first rate: the acting, the casting, the overall look of the movie. The colors are bold, just like you would want in a comic book cartoon . The bluray reproduces all this better than the old DVD did, just as you would expect. A special bonus is the high quality music composed by the great Danny Elfman,with songs by Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim. Madonna does a good job with her acting, not just her singing. This is a fun entertainment. So why only 4 stars? Al Pacino's overacting gives me a headache. But that's just me.

      The movie is great, that is why I bought it So I won't go into that. But if you're wondering if this blu ray version is the one you might want then you might want to think again. I think they got lazy with the transfer. I know the movie is old, but some scenes were blatantly ignored to fix up. It's like intercutting a movie between blu ray quality and vhs quality. But since I don't think there will be any update to this film anytime soon You might as well pick it up if your vhs breaks.

      Revisit this classic and often under rated movie from Disney that brings Dick Tracy colorful cast to vivid life in true high def. Betty's performance is great along with a who's who supporting cast. Definitely worth the upgrade to blu ray or a first purchase to those discovering this classic for the first time. Would have given 5 stars, but this copy no longer comes with digital copy.

      So much is good about this film, conceptually: the era, the setting, the costumes, the IP, the cast, the music--it's all great! But it feels like they just couldn't get the script together. In fact, at times it seems like they told their big name actors (in awesome makeup) to simply ham it up in front of the cameras without any script--which is probably not true, but that's how desperately thin the script appears to be.

      Movie is a great classic. I enjoyed it when I was a kid. The copy I purchased online did not have a Digital Copy code to use even though it is advertised on the website. Not a huge deal but I like to redeem those when I can so I can add to my movie collection on that format also.

      This was a blast from the past! I've always enjoyed this movie and seeing it years later on Blu ray is terrific. The picture and sound quality are phenomenal; this is the best way to see this movie. The only downside to the release is no extras.
