Title:
The Untouchables
Synopsis:
From a script by David Mamet, the movie pits four underdog heroes (the maverick lawmen known as the Untouchables) against a singular villain in Al Capone, played by as a dapper caesar holding court (and a baseball bat) against any and all challengers. is the naive federal agent Eliot Ness, whose lack of experience is tempered by the streetwise alliance of a seasoned Chicago cop (, in an Oscar-winning performance), a rookie marksman (), and an accountant (Charles Martin Smith) who holds the key to Capone’s potential downfall. The movie approaches greatness on the strength of its set pieces, such as the siege near the Canadian border, the venal ambush at Connery’s apartment, and the train-station shootout partially modeled after the ”Odessa steps” sequences of the Russian classic Battleship Potemkin. It’s thrilling stuff, fueled by Ennio Morricone’s dynamic score, but it’s also manipulative and obvious. If you’re inclined to be critical, the movie gives you reason to complain. If you’d rather sit back and enjoy a first-rate production with an all-star cast, The Untouchables may very well strike you as a classic.
