His girlfriend, TESS TRUEHEART, wants to settle down to a quiet life.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Summer hasn't officially arrived yet, but it's unlikely to offer a big-budget commercial movie as thoroughly entertaining as this stylish real-life cartoon. – Vincent Canby, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Beatty and his team of collaborators have heightened the vibrantly tawdry urban night world of Chester Gould's classic comic strip. – Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 13, 2010

Rotten: For all its superficial pleasures, Dick Tracy ultimately flounders because it provides an audience with nothing to take home and dream about. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Aug 18, 2007

Fresh: This is a movie in which every frame contains some kind of artificial effect. An entire world has been built here, away from the daylight and the realism of ordinary city streets. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Customer Reviews

Not perfect, but a good try.

It was priceless watching Al Pacino at the fool playing Big Boy Caprice as well as Dustin Hoffman as Mumbles and Paul Sorvino as Lipps Manus. The supporting cast was great. The art direction, set design and wardrobe gave the film a "comic strip" feel. It's eye catching.

Great fun!

This movie is visually stunning, the vivid colors and art direction make it look like the pages of a comic book have come to life. Danny Elfman provides a music score that goes perfectly with the film. Great costumes and makeup add to this comic masterpiece. Last but not least, a top notch cast who make this movie worth watching!
