Dick Tracy


Legendary police detective Dick Tracy is the only man tough enough to take on gangster boss Big Boy Caprice and his band of menacing mobsters. Dedicated to his work but at the same time devoted to his loyal girlfriend, Tess Trueheart, Tracy find himself torn between love and duty. His relentless crusade against crime becomes even more difficult when he gets saddled with an engaging orphan and meets seductive and sultry Breathless Mahoney, a torch singer determined to get the best of Tracy. A faceless character, the Blank, threatens both Tracy and Big Boy, and it takes all of Tracy's skills to save the city. (texto oficial do distribuidor)

inglês A major favourite to top the ranking of star-studded bad movies. Not to put too fine a point on it, it has a very nice soundtrack, a distinctive cinematography that interestingly distorts the already distorted space, and a stylization that makes it unmistakable. And last but not least, there's Al Pacino, who savours every line and deserves all the acting awards in the world for his perfect vocal intonation alone. Warren Beatty is fine as a lead character, but as a director... Well, let's just say he picked a weak narcissistic moment and blew off what he could. The plot moves forward at an insane pace and there’s no chance to get bored, but at the same time I felt it was missing some exposition scenes, which were replaced by superfluous sequences that did not lose momentum, but made the consistency of the narrative rather shabby. But mainly, this was supposed to be a comedy, yet the jokes are few and far between (and all of them are Pacino's) and the parodying of gangsters is very dodgy. The intention was good, but the end result should have been either something in the style of Burton's Batman or a pure comedy ride, and not this weird mix. ()
