...A beautifully crafted portrait of Prohibition-era Chicago....Propelled by scripter David Mamet's rich dialog, Connery delivers one of his finest performances ever. It is filled with nuance, humor and abundant self-confidence...

...Packed with surprises, not the least being that it's a smashing work....THE UNTOUCHABLES is an original...

Rating: 4/4 -- It's a beautifully controlled film, as well as an intensely exciting and enjoyable one. Although De Niro and Connery easily walk away with the acting honors, the less flamboyant performance of Costner is perhaps the most admirable in the film. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/5 -- Where, under his stainless-steel incorruptibility, was Ness' gnawing flaw? To Mamet and De Palma, goodness and dullness seem inseparable. Full Review

Taut screenwriting (David Mamet) and a superb cast -- including a prize-winning performance by Sean Connery as the veteran Chicago cop -- help make 'The Untouchables' a classic. Full Review

...THE UNTOUCHABLES has a great look; two big action set-pieces and a pair of performances by old-pro smoothies...

Product Description:

Kevin Costner is idealistic federal agent Eliot Ness, whose assignment to clean up Prohibition-era Chicago leads to violence and manly questions about upholding the law. Initially powerless to stop the flow of booze into the city (the police force is corrupt and everyone in town seems to be on the mob's payroll), Ness finds guidance from an older streetwise cop (Sean Connery, who won an Academy Award for this role) who convinces him he'll need to break some rules if he wants to bring down head mobster Al Capone (Robert De Niro). Andy Garcia and Charles Martin Smith play Ness's other recruits, who together must stand tall against a city full of assassins. Director Brian De Palma (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE) packs the film with violence and creative camera movements while David Mamet's intelligent script capably dodges cliché at every turn. There's a real sense of what's at stake for these characters on a personal level, which contrasts nicely with the futility inherent in enforcing Prohibition in the first place. The film is based on the autobiographical book by Ness (cowritten with Oscar Fraley) and the 1959-63 TV series; Ennio Morricone (THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY) composed the uninhibitedly bombastic score.
