Director Brian De Palma Tommy guns his way through Al Capone’s prohibition era Chicago, with the 1987 hit The Untouchables. In what proved to be Kevin Costner’s breakout role as Elliot Ness (“Let’s do some good!”), he’s tasked with taking down the powerful rum running Capone (played with corrupt comic book villainy by Robert De Niro), who has the city’s politicians, judges and cops in his back pocket. After Ness’ “Untouchables” (Charles Martin Smith & Andy Garcia) are chosen with the help of veteran Irish beat cop Jim Malone (an Academy Award winning performance by Sean Connery), they overcome humiliating setbacks, and go bark for bite with Capone and his crew. Chicago’s practical locations (including a Battleship Potemkin homage at Union Station), combined with superb art direction, a taught script by David Mamet, driving score by Ennio Morricone, and director De Palma at his “creeper sequence” best – The Untouchables remains an immensely satisfying crime thriller classic.
“The Untouchables is a beautifully crafted portrait of Prohibition-era Chicago. Connery delivers one of his finest performances.” – Variety
“It’s vulgar, violent, funny and sometimes breathtakingly beautiful. After this Untouchables, all other movies dealing with Prohibition Chicago, Al Capone and the lawmen who brought him to justice must look a bit anemic.” – Vincent Canby, The New York Times
