Product Overview

The critics and public agree. Brian DePalma's The Untouchables is a must see masterpiece - a glorious, fierce, larger-than-life depiction of the mob warlord who ruled Prohibition-era Chicago...and the law enforcer who vowed to bring him down.

This classic confrontation between good and evil stars Kevin Costner as federal agent Eliot Ness, Robert DeNiro as gangland kingpin Al Capone and Sean Connery as Malone, the cop who teaches Ness how to beat the mob: shoot fast and shoot first.

Reviews
ReviewSource DVD Verdict
Review One of 1987's monster hits at the box office, Brian DePalma's film version of the classic television series stars Kevin Costner, in an early leading role, Robert De Niro in one of his early cameo roles, and Sean Connery in one of his first "mentor to the young kid" roles...The movie is slick Hollywood entertainment all the way. Big, bloody and full of witty one-liners (courtesy of David Mamet), The Untouchables moves like a bat out of hell, going from set piece to set piece, almost never pausing to let the viewer catch their breath...All that work plus Giorgio Armani's stunning costumes and you have a mix that is simply pure Hollywood eye candy...it is still a really fun movie. It's big, dumb and full of fun. It's got a great performance from Sean Connery and Paramount's visual production is top notch.

Review The Untouchables is a tour de force, the pinnacle of a career. For Brian De Palma, known best for his stylish crafting of Hitchcock-influenced plots, The Untouchables represents not only a departure from the norm, but an unqualified triumph...two hours of pure, exuberant entertainment Ð an epic gangster tale rendered on a grand scale...Put simply, The Untouchables is a great adventure movie, with at least a half-dozen tremendous action scenes and a script that delivers one quotable line after another...this is a nearly perfect motion picture - an epic indulgence of spectacle and exhilaration. It is the center jewel in the director's crown. No matter how long De Palma stays in the business, he will likely never surpass what he accomplished here, telling this larger-than-life tale in larger-than-life fashion.
