The Untouchables

  • Genre : Crime/Drama
  • Written By : Oscar Fraley, Eliot Ness
  • Directed By : Brian De Palma
  • Release Date : June 2, 1987
  • Running Time : 119 Minutes
Kevin Costner, Sean Connery, Robert De Niro, Charles Martin Smith

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).

My Review
Brian De Palma really turned this movie into one of the most memorable and greatest gangster film ever. Kevin Costner played his part as federal agent, Eliot Ness, and he did really well I must say. You also shouldn't miss Sean Connery as he is the sole reason why the movie turned out to be great as his role helping Costner out in the movie. Sadly Robert De Niro had a so-so performance but still it was good.
As for the scenes in the movie, Brian De Palma did one hell of a job directing as he kept the gun fighting and the drama scenes at a good level. One scene right before the end with all the gun fights was my favorite in particular.
Overall it was a very exciting movie.
My Recommendations
  • Gangster fans must see
  • Excellent film

Rating : 3.5/5
