DICK TRACY (Theatrical Release USA 1945)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Dick Tracy—nothing new—presents an average detective tale with a straight forward, simple, ‘let’s get to the point’ story. It seems like a “Let’s make a cheap movie and see what happens.” It’s a ‘run of the mill’ movie’ that can fill a lunch hour or light afternoon watch that does not require mental involvement.

Storyline

Detective looks for a serial killer.

Maybe. It works for the detective fan and is worth a watch for a lunch break.
