      Critics Consensus

      Dick Tracy is stylish, unique, and an undeniable technical triumph, but it ultimately struggles to rise above its two-dimensional artificiality.

      Petros T The production design, costumes, prosthetics and in general the visuals of "Dick Tracy" are magnificent. Warren Beatty is very good, and the cast they've put together is impressive although some of them are barely recognizable under their makeup and perhaps a little underwhelming - I mean, getting Dustin Hoffman to do whatever the fuck he was doing ad infinitum isn't exactly the most brilliant casting choice. On the whole, it's a fairly interesting film even if the storyline is all too familiar. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 09/08/23 Full Review Jess D Undoubtedly one of the GREATEST comic films of ALL-TIME! A pedigree of cast and crew that no Marvel or DC movie has yet to surpass; even to this day. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/19/23 Full Review Audience Member An under-rated classic that I always found a ton of fun, as well as visually stunning. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 11/21/22 Full Review Audience Member I love it! The colors, the characters, everything! Down to the way Warren Beatty walks around. It's just fun from beginning to end. Al Pacino is great! And I love the kid. What a find he is! I highly recommend it! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Lequisha S [10/8/20]: "I hate Warren Beatty films lol. Very colorful, i'm not sure how much creative direction as informing the colors but. The montage portions to backdrop of Madonna's voice is very good; Pacino was really popping off in over-the-top role. Production design is indeed very good. Big Batman vibes lol. Danny Elfman did score, go figure." [today]: I just remember Madonna being incredibly hot and the prosthetic makeup on some of these folks being u g l y. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 06/29/22 Full Review Boneyard L This movie has an amazing style somewhere between Sin City and Edward Scissorhands, but it's plot and execution is so wildly ill-advised that it's surprising it got made. It serves as a warning to anyone attempting to make a film that purports to be for children in its intellectual property, style, and tone, but insists on including mistreatment and exploitation of women in a gritty gangster plot. Content warning: female nudity Closest comparison: It's like The Maltese Falcon by way of Speed Racer (2008).

      Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune A visual delight and a dramatic letdown. Rated: 3/4 Jun 23, 2020 Full Review Bob Thomas Associated Press Forget the plot. The essence of Dick Tracy lies in characters and style, and there it exceeds last summer's clunky, over-produced Batman. Aug 8, 2019 Full Review Keith Phipps Slate The film moves at a chug when it should put the pedal to the floor. Jul 7, 2010 Full Review Terry Francis Southern Voice (Atlanta) There's something painful about a movie that fails on an artistic plane as high as the one touched by this film, but uncomplying characters do not a successful film make. Rated: 2.5/4 May 9, 2023 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Dick Tracy is a cleverly planned, marvelously executed, and singularly unsatisfactory film. [Full review in Spanish] Nov 17, 2022 Full Review Quentin Crisp Christopher Street For all its violence, it remains jolly, its boisterous moral tone softened here and there by moments of cautious sentimentality.
