Description
The critics and public agree. Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables is a must-see masterpiece – glorious, fierce, larger-than-life depiction of the mob warlord who ruled Prohibition-era Chicago… and the law enforcer who vowed to bring him down. This classic confrontation between good and evil and stars Kevin Costner as federal agent Eliot Ness, Robert De Niro as gangland kingpin Al Capone and Sean Connery as Malone, the cop who teaches Ness how to beat the mob: shoot fast and… More >>

  1. This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. What good is extravagant set design when you have hack directing, hackneyed writing/storytelling, and poor editing? Virtually every scene is leaden, overly-long, and devoid of suspense or drama. Here’s just one example: The baby carriage scene (the Battleship Potemkin “homage”) is drawn out far too long to add anything to the plot. (And why bother cutting to the clock if you don’t show the minute hand move?) I could list a dozen more examples, but the film doesn’t deserve another minute of my time. An unbelievably bad stinker.

  2. Wack movie! A pure waste of money. My brother told me it sucked and he didn’t even finish watching it, that’s how bad it was, and neither did I! (SO don’t buy!)The movie was just way too old-fashioned and foolish, and the music was corny, kiddy, happy-go-lucky music that belonged is some cartoon shows that my little sister watches. A more serious type of music would have been better suited for the material of the movie since it consisted of murder, mayhem, and violence. Even the acting was corny and just plain lame-what were these four suppose to be?! The fearless foursome?! The dynamic duo or something?! Trust me, this is garbage. The only real reason people even would pay any attention to it is because it involves the mob, which is something everyone swears to heaven would make a good, five-star film. Really silly film, indeed. Topnamed actors like Coster, DeNiro, and Connery don’t mean anything if the movie is foolishness.

  3. among all the five star reviews, it’s funny nobody mentioned the blatant

    misrepresentation of frank nitti in this movie.

    he was not a rat-faced psychopath who was thrown off a building by elliot ness as portrayed in this movie. mr. nitti was second in command, and after capone was incarcerated, nitti ran the mob for 13 years.

    his life ended when he allegedly committed suicide in 1943.

    i don’t mind movies blurring the facts in the name of dramatic license,

    but in this case being completely blind to actual events will earn this film only one star from me.

    btw, de palma also ruined “the black dahlia.”

    please mr. de palma, don’t make anymore movies.

  4. supposed saga regarding the “gansters” in old Chicago. It looked to me as if the criminals and the “good guys” were just about the same. For the corruption in the police force and the most pure “Eliot Ness” looked like it ran about neck and neck with the supposed “gangsters”. Of course the added racial slurs thrown in by the most high Sean Connery another overrated “actor”. Just terrible, don’t bother with this one.

  5. I never understood the whole homophobia thing, but I guess you get it with this movie. Okay Okay peoples, maybe perhaps it really is about some guys who are invincible but that movie already came out and that bartender that played for the Eagles, well that is a football team and they touch a lot. In fact that game, they dive and give flying bear hugs to each other. Kevin Costner is here and you know, he tried making it some emo-sap ridden baseball movie but the guys with the machine guns were not having it!

    When MC Hammer jumped on stage and said “can’t touch this” I just turned it off. I said to my friend “friend, why did you rent this, next time I am going with you to the store” and that was the end of our movie night
