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.

Steeped in De Palma's glorious violence and sinuous cinematography, but stripped of his tricky sensuality and his anarchic self-reflective wit.

The pacing is lethargic as the director seems to treat this saga of law and order with mock seriousness.

Costner's lack of charisma, Connery's arrogance, and De Palma's disinterest in his material add up to a pretty lame couple of hours.

The end result can easily pass as mindless mainstream entertainment, but make no mistake: The Untouchables is one of De Palma's most trenchant statements about the state of America.

The action is great fun, the tension equally enjoyable and the overall experience worthwhile, despite the fact that the good guy is about 100 times less interesting than the bad guy.
