Reviews
Mine: Gobs of fun. Great visual style. Fun performance. I always liked the comic strip, and this captured it well. Especially fun to watch Al Pacino in major make-up butcher the english language.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Colorful, high-style adaptation of the Chester Gould comic strip classic, with Beatty redefining the hawk-nosed, jut-jawed hero. Story is simple in the extreme, but there's so much to take in you really don't mind: a galaxy of guest stars as Gould's grotesque villains, eye-popping, Academy Award-winning make-up and art direction and Madonna singing new Stephen Sondheim songs (if a few too many). One of them, "Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)," also won an Oscar. Standout: Pacino's hilarious, over-the-top performance as Big Boy Caprice.
