The best cop/mob movie remains decidedly untouchable.

A deeply satisfying and entertaining Prohibition gang-buster directed with a Tommy gun's rat-tat-tat.

De Palma does superb job with the action sequences, which are choreographed, paced and acted out so well that they don't leave a palm dry in the house.

The Untouchables could be the breakthrough movie for Kevin Costner, a folksy, Gary Cooperish actor who holds center stage as Eliot Ness.

Brian De Palma's version blends style, violence and a host of fine character portrayals into a rousing, point-blank period film.

For many the main attraction of this modern classic is Sean Connery's Oscar-winning turn as the veteran Irish cop who shows Costner the ropes.

Total Film

De Palma's style rides substance out of town to leave a glorious compendium of genre cool, remixing the original '50s TV series just as Indiana Jones took a whip to '30s serial adventures.

Unlike some past De Palma films, though, The Untouchables makes some of its strongest impressions in sequences that build suspense and characterization without readily resorting to mayhem.

It goes to that place that all films aspiring to greatness must attain: the country of myth, where all the figures must be larger and more vivid than life.

...a consistently watchable yet sporadically captivating piece of work that is, unfortunately, starting to show its age...

The results are watchable enough, with a particularly adept use of Sean Connery, Chicago locations, and period details.

De Palma's masterpiece is an exhilarating, moving and larger-than-life cops vs. crooks epic. Connery and De Niro steal the show in charismatic supporting turns. The best film of 1987.

De Palma's stylish crime-gangster tale is extremely enjoybale in large measure due to the set-pieces and homages to Sergio Leone and Eisenstein, but also to Sean Connery's great performance for which he deservedly won the Supporting Actor Oscar.

It's one of the all-time great gangster flicks, a gorgeously realized production that places archetypal heroes and villains in the service of a rip-roaring storyline.

Superb performances, exquisite direction and that Ennio Morricone score create an authentic 1920s Chicago feel and a hugely entertaining crime drama.
