The Untouchables review
Daniel Corleone - wrote on 09/05/11
All-star cast with a typical plot of a righteous cop Ness (Kevin Costner) vs. a cunning mobster Al Capone (Robert DeNiro). A catchy musical score, amazing camera movements/angles and solid performances make this crime film effective. DeNiro kind of went over the top in his performance, must be possible he took notes in depicting one of the most popular mafioso's ever. Has a few sad scenes because of a few likable characters being gunned down. Sean Connery as Jim Malone was very interesting to watch, imparting his knowledge to catch Capone. Despite some historical inaccuracies such as Ness having a daughter (really had a son) and the team (11 in reality). The Untouchables could do without DeNiro's over reacting, Costner's bland acting and certain dragging scenes. Still, overall the movie had great costumes, excellent screenplay, and exquisite direction. The Untouchables is a very good gangster film that entertains.
