Brian De Palma's The Untouchables is a must-see masterpiece: set to a classic Ennio Morricone score, this is the glorious and fierce depiction of the larger than life mob warlord who ruled Prohibition-era Chicago - and the law enforcer who vowed to bring him down.

This classic confrontation between good and evil stars Kevin Costner as federal agent Eliot Ness, Robert De Niro as gangland kingpin Al Capone and Sean Connery winning an Oscar as Malone, the cop who teaches Ness how to beat the mob: shoot fast and shoot first.

Funny how you always find DVD's cheap the day after they appear for free on TV....

I watched it for 1st time on Saturday, I didn't think it was that good

Been years since I saw this. Think I saw it when it first came out. What I remember of it it was good. esp the bit when the bad guy is thrown off the roof on to the car!

I remember seeing this years ago and thinking it was great but then watched it again at the weekend on Film4 and realised it really isn't that good, reckon it is massively over-rated.

Never stop, never stop dealing till the deal is done

Because I gave up hope on recent films as the most of them are dirt, I started collecting older films like this. Excellent film at a great price.

Check ratings at sites like imdb.com , user reviews scored this high as far as I can remember

yeh its very highly rated by critics and in my opinion its a classic.

I know Hollywood stretches the truth with screenplays, but they used elastic on this one. The period the film was set in had more larger than life characters and situations that it didn't need the TREATMENT. The worst being the fictional character of Sean Connery, playing an Irishman! With the best will in the world the only role Sean ever plays is himself.:p

NEVER EVER mock the Connery!

ah tis tru, tah be shure..

Great film tho. But this isnt a docu-film so no its not accurate, although based on Elliot Ness's book, that itself was nothing like the actual events that unfolded. It's just entertainment - unless of course you really think we are all in the matrix, or Hilts did actually jump that fence.....

The title The "Untouchables" is a LIE. One of them got touched, in a lift... I PVR'd it the other day on Filmfour its a great entertaining movie.

I thought the scene at the train station is too drawn out. Also, I just don't see the 'untouchables' being safe even after the mafia guy has been imprisoned. If he's so powerful, I'm sure he'll have many contacts and he'll try and get a hit man on the 'untouchables'.

...or maybe I'm just looking too much into it

The 'Untouchables' refers to the group which Elliot Ness forms which can't be bought or bribed. The train station scene is also a nod towards the famous Odessa Steps scene in Battleship Potemkin.
