Brian DePalma's mob movie is led by a great cast of Coster, Connery, and De Niro. Making The Untouchables a sure fire hit!

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

Awesome. Brilliant. Must see

Scherpe regie en zalige muziek, maar de personages zijn zwart-wit. Eliott Ness heeft geen slecht kantje, Al Capone heeft geen positief kantje, ... Meer stijl dan inhoud.

whilst it does have some minor flaws in scripting and (in costners case) acting chops, this movie is damn good. Connery owns this movie and DeNiro is formidable as Capone.

Brilliant classic gangster film. With its all star cast and iconic scenes, it is a must see for any fan of movies.

One of the few Brian DePalma films that I really like! Just saw this in HD for the first time. It looked incredible! Lots of great performances in this and it was very exciting to watch. Still had the odd dry spell, but for the most part, this is a solid film!

This American gangster film based on a true story, contains solid performances from an all-star cast, with Connery the standout. Including period costumes and settings, this film accurately recreates the 1920s era. 1001

Fantastic. One of the best Gangster flicks. One of Depalmas more straightforward pictures, but you could still see his fingerprints on it.

Featuring a superb cast, The Untouchables is an original gangster film unlike any other of its genre
July 24, 2015
While it doesn't exactly follow history as closely as you'd believe, it gets the look and feel of Prohibition era Chicago down. Costner is our white knight protagonist, De Niro gives a memorable villain turn, and Connery collects an Oscar for his best non Bond performance.

I have never cared so much for a baby stroller until this film!

A near-perfect movie full of epic performances! Connery, Costner, Deniro! Just a great movie that's incredibly rewatchable!

Very cool cops and gangsters flick with great performances and Brian DePalma's signature action style.

Grade: A-

I can't remember the last time I saw such an unremarkable film. A larger-than-life tale with direction that is duller-than-a-pile-of-beans.

Fun, dramatic, greatly performed, and nice actions scenes. it serves to be a fine De Palma film.

Lousy. Unrealistic drama. Not serious at all.

How do you think he feels now, better or worse?

Treasury Officer Elliot Ness has been assigned the impossible mission of bringing down Al Capone. Initially, he has all the men and resources at his disposal he needs but keeps coming up short because Capone has paid people on his team. He finds a friend who helps him form a smaller more effective team; but Ness quickly discovers as he gets closer to Capone, more and more lives become at risk.

"It's nice to be married."
"If you can stand the pain."

Brian De Palma, director of Scarface, Carlito's Way, Mission: Impossible, Black Dahlia, Mission to Mars, Snake Eyes, Femme Fatale, and Carrie (1976), delivers The Untouchables. The storyline for this seems a bit fabricated but entertaining and well done similar to Tombstone. The action and script is very well written and the cast delivers solid performances. The cast includes Kevin Costner, Robert De Niro, Sean Connery, Andy Garcia, Charles Martin Smith, and Billy Drago.

"Make sure when your shift is over you go home alive."

I came across this on HBOGO and decided to watch it again for the first time in a long time. I always adored this movie and how the character interactions unfold and the great shootouts. The film also has the perfect "feel" to it like Tombstone or Hoodlum. This is an underrated classic that is a must see.

"And don't let him clean himself until after he talks."
