The comic book comes to life with director/star Warren Beatty's colorful adaptation of Dick Tracy. Buena Vista has done a fine job with this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. The colors and black levels are all rich and very detailed without any major imperfections marring the image. While this is not a perfect looking picture (there is a slight amount of edge enhancement in a few key scenes), overall fans will be happy to receive this film in its original aspect ratio with a 16x9 enhancement. The soundtrack is presented in two options: Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround and DTS 5.1 Surround, both in English. Both of these soundtracks are utilized well with a vast amount of directional effects and surround sounds swirling around the viewer. All aspects of the mix are free of any excessive hiss or distortion. Also included on this disc is a Dolby Digital Stereo mix in French along with English closed captions Alas, while rumblings of a full blown special edition have been around, this first ever DVD release of Dick Tracy has been slapped on a completely bare bones disc.
