In spite of a stellar cast led by Beatty as the square-jawed cop, Dick Tracy never comes to life--it's the rough idea of a Dick Tracy movie, stiff, formless, and kind of dumb. Full Review

This has an appealing two-dimensional comic-book look, but lacks the vision to go with it, not to mention an interesting hero or a feeling for action. Full Review

Though it looks ravishing, Warren Beatty's longtime pet project is a curiously remote, uninvolving film. Full Review

A waste of time and money. Full Review

It's an accomplished stylistic exercise, reconsidering the pop culture of the '30s through the perspective of the late 20th century.

Rating: 7/10 -- "Dick Tracy" isn't in the top tier of comic-book adaptations, but ingenuous art direction and set decoration and some crazy make-up jobs create a film that's still a delight to watch. Full Review
