The Untouchables Reviews
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."

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."
