Studio: Disney / Buena Vista
MSRP: $26.50, but Amazon has it for $23.32.
Running Time: 100 minutes

What’s Going On?

Official Synopsis:

Imaginative performances color this extraordinary action flick directed by and starring Oscar winner Warren Beatty (Best Director, Reds, 1981), Grammy winning singer Madonna, Oscar nominee Al Pacino (Best Supporting Actor, Dick Tracy, 1990) and Oscar winner Dustin Hoffman (Best Actor, Rain Man, 1988). When gang lord Big Boy Caprice unites the town’s racketeers and gangsters, police detective Dick Tracy devotes his career to foiling the entire bunch of bad guys. Complete with richly evocative music – including Stephen Sondheim’s Academy Award-winning “Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)” (Best Original Song, 1990), Dick Tracy is a stunner in Hi-Def Blu-ray.

Who’s In It:

 Al Pacino
 Dustin Hoffman
 Warren Beatty

If You Like…:

Completely imaginative movies the way they used to be made. Practical effects and giant set pieces, movies just aren’t made this way anymore.

There are no special features on this disk.

The Verdict:

It’s a shame that this blu-ray doesn’t have any special features. This had to have been an incredibly complex production and there has to be material out there somewhere that should have been added to this release. It doesn’t take away from the film though, this might be one of the only disks that could be recommended as BUY IT with little to no special features.
