USA Today - 06/14/1990
"...It really gets under your skin..."
New York Times - 06/15/1990
"...DICK TRACY is a great uninterrupted grin....Oddball and matchless..."
Los Angeles Times - 06/10/1990
"...DICK TRACY is brash, irresistible fun. Warren Beatty's vision of a comic strip on film comes in paint-box bright colors with nicely irreverent dialogue....It's a film of enormous style..."
A.V. Club - 01/02/2013
"It's an accomplished stylistic exercise, reconsidering the pop culture of the '30s through the perspective of the late 20th century."
