Growing up as part of a poor family in New York City's Harlem, Nicky Barnes aspires to wealth and power. In the early 1970s, as drug use becomes increasingly popular, Barnes devises a plan to obtain the lifestyle he has always wanted. With help from the mob, Barnes establishes himself as a successful drug dealer and becomes tremendously wealthy. Barnes's extravagant lifestyle, however, proves to be his undoing, as he unwittingly draws the attention of the FBI.

Audience Reviews for Mr. Untouchable

  • May 08, 2011
    Pretty boring documentary about Nicky Barnes. It had moments where it was somewhat entertaining, but those moments where few and far between. Watch American Gangster for a more entertaining experience and leave it at that.

    Good Documentary about the guys that ran drugs in Harlem in the 70s. A whole lot more entertaining and informative than American Gangster.
