The critics and public agree. Brian De Palma's THE UNTOUCHABLES is a must-see masterpiece - a 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 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 shoot first.

Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.5 out of 5★ by 2reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5★ by Great actors in it, but is not a good movie. Lawless was an ok movie that showed the world of bootlegging during the time when selling liquor was illegal. The movie shows good and the bad that this world contained. The movie features Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Guy Pearce, Jason Clarke, and Jessica Chastain. The movie is actually based on a true story about the conflict that existed between law enforcement and the bootlegging proprietors. The standout from this movie is Tom Hardy, he is an exceptional actor, and it shows in this movie. Tom Hardy controls every scene he is in. I also thought that Jason Clarke who played Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf's brothers was also very good. But this movie was just average due to the weak writing and odd direction given to exceptional actors like Guy Pearce were given. I enjoyed this movie but I can not recommend it for you to purchase.Thank you for reading my review. 04/11/2014
