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

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

It's vulgar, violent, funny and sometimes breathtakingly beautiful.
