Movie Info

The true-life story of a Harlem's notorious Nicky Barnes, a junkie turned multimillionaire drug-lord, "Mr. Untouchable" takes its audience deep inside the heroin industry of the 1970s. The most powerful black drug king pin in New York City history, Barnes came from humble beginnings to make himself and his comrades rich beyond their wildest dreams, ultimately reaching national infamy in 1977 when "The New York Times" put him on the front cover of their magazine with the headline "Mr. Untouchable." Soon after, it all came crumbling down, and facing a life sentence without parole, Barnes started naming names. With the first hand testimony from "the black Godfather" himself, this documentary tells an epic story of business, excess, greed and revenge.

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.
