The acting is superb, and while Connery was the one who received his well-deserved Oscar, Kostner and De Niro made Oscar-class performances too. It’s a terrific performance, for which he should have received at least an Oscar nomination. He even bends some of the rules he initially tried so hard to uphold. And that’s the way it was until Treasury Agent Eliot Ness showed up for work and hand picked a squad of honest cops to help him get Capone and clean up the City of Chicago. This movie is filled with enough corny commercial movie tricks and cliches that it just cannot be taken seriously. From the cop on the beat to the judges sitting on the highest courts, everyone seemingly had a price and could be bought. With Depalma, De Niro, and what looked to be a huge budget with a story that is already compelling enough in real life, there’s no reason to make a film this absent of quality.
Beautifully directed by Brian De Palma, “The Untouchables” stands very tall with the other great productions of the s. De Niro plays it as it lays, presenting Capone as the brutal criminal he was, without attempting to airbrush away any of the attributes that made him so despicable. Andy Garcia appears in this film in a very limited role as well and he serves his purpose brilliantly.

That’s the Chicago way– that’s how you get Capone. The acting is nothing short of brilliant. He steals every scene he is in and he really brings the larger-than-life quality to the character which is extremely fitting.

As I noted before the film is brilliantly directed, with some scenes such as the one with the baseball bat, or the one with the baby in the train station, having become classic. He is the sharpshooter of the group and he is perfectly believable in that part.

This is not a bad thing if you’re making a Disney movie, but when you’re making a crime drama, especially one based on real life realism is probably the way you want to go. Got a YouTube account?
Brian De Palma Director: First reason is that The Untouchables is just so darn entertaining. It seems that the fact that DeNiro has been lax in paying his income taxes could be his ultimate downfall. Although belonging to a typical genre, this film certainly stands out.
De Niro captures the ruthlessness that indelibly marked Capone’s infamy forever in the annals of criminal history, with a portrayal of him that is arguably the best in cinematic history. If intouchzbles sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.
He also got a well deserved Oscar for his performance. Outstanding production that was the best film of with the exception of the very dominant “The Last Emperor”. Were we watching the same movie?! Some people have remarked that he seemed stiff and unable to portray the emotion of the character and to that I can only ask: De Niro plays it intoichables it lays, presenting Capone as the brutal criminal he was, without attempting to airbrush away any of the attributes that made him so despicable.
Here are a few reasons why. Slick on the surface but loaded with artful touches, Brian DePalma’s classical gangster thriller is a sharp look at period Chicago crime, featuring excellent performances from a top-notch cast. He doesn’t get to say much but what he does get to say is intouchbles with as much passion as I have ever heard from him he seemed a little stale and lifeless in Godfather III. Indeed, it sets the tone for the movie itself, which is a tone of farce more than grit. And it subtly underscores the true heroics of men like Ness and his crew, who through their fearless dedication possibly made it a little safer for someone to walk down the street, or for an honest man to simply go about the business of making a living– things too often taken for granted in our busy world today; things that are important, and which makes a film like this so intouhables more than merely entertainment though it definitely is that.
Both in his friends and in the cause. This movie just reeks of farce, from the accountant mowing down people with a shotgun with the nerdy grin symbolizing his transformation from mild mannered nerd to empowered bad-ass to the completely arbitrary scene of Robert DeNiro hitting a guy croatiaj a baseball bat no back story,no plot movement, seemingly no reason for it to be in the movie whatsoever to Sean Connery getting blasted with seemingly dozens of machine gun bullets, bleeding enough to subfitles died three times over, and yet still having the power to gasp a few more words just as Elliot Ness gets there before finally dying.
Illegal liquor smuggling and other much more serious crimes are running amok and corruption is all over. The bureau responded by sending Ness Kevin Costner an accountant, Oscar Wallace Charles Martin Smithwho first had the idea of going after Capone for income tax evasion.

The story is, as most people know, loosely based on the actual events during the prohibition era in USA in the s the story is also based very, very loosely on the series that ibtouchables by the same name which to some extent means that what we see on the screen is real making the characters and general story seem that much more believable.
I suppose his acting may have not been particularly bad, but his character seemed so manufactured and out of step with reality that he simply couldn’t be taken seriously.
