3.0 out of 5 stars When do we eat?..., 18 Mar 2014
This review is from: Dick Tracy (Limited Edition) [Blu-ray Steelbook] (Blu-ray)
Dick Tracy is one of the best police officers in the city.

He is currently on the hunt for crime boss Big Boy Caprice who recently killed off former crime boss Lips Manless.

Now Big Boy is rallying up all of the criminals in the city who are not only trying to make the city bow to Big Boy's wishes but to eliminate Tracy.

Tracy is faced with issues, as he is trying to not only track down Big Boy, but to keep his girlfriend Tess Trueheart, take care of a nameless orphan and dodge seductive club dancer Breathless Mahoney and a mysterious gangster.....

The film is beautiful to look at, and it's obvious that it really has had a lot of attention given to it regarding the sets and costumes, but it sticks to the back of ones mind knowing that this is one of the biggest vanity projects ever made.

Whenever Beatty is on close up, it's as if someone is shining a torch in his face, to make him look that little more pretty, and alluring to the ladies.

And this becomes the bane of the film, because you really start to lose interest in the titular character, so thank goodness for the wealth of support and great turns from Pacino and even Madonna.

The story is light and so is narrative, for the majority of the film, we just see Tracy being chased by gangsters, or being chased by women, and once or twice having a musical interlude or a fight.

But Kudos to Beatty for making such an entertaining and still very fresh vanity project/blockbuster.
