Format: DVD
This film marks several remarkable firsts: The first true representation of a David Mamet film script (although "The Verdict" in 1980 came first), the leading-man status of Kevin Costner (deservedly so, since despite disasters like "The Postman" and "3000 Miles to Graceland", he's a very good actor with a very impressive resume and an Oscar to boot), Sean Connery's first Oscar win, also very much deserved, and most importantly, the first good film from Brian De Palma. People call films like "Body Double", "Carrie", "Blow Out" and "Dressed to Kill" classics... why they do, I have nary a clue. Those are some of the worst rip-off films in history. His "Hitchcockian" feeling is, to me, straight-up plagarism. He rips off plots and shots that are embarassing mish-moshes of Hitch's best (and worst) stuff. And did you see "Mission to Mars"? I didn't think so. And the only people that I can imagine that liked "Femme Fatale" were fans of the bathroom sequence (If you saw it, you know what I'm talking about). The only other film of his that was worth watching was "Mission: Impossible". But "The Untouchables" is a real work of art. I won't go into plot points, but I'll comment on the film's great points: 1) The dialogue is sparkling. Mamet makes these people real as opposed to just making them standard action caricatures (the young idealist, the grizzled old wise-man, the cocky rookie, and the dorky fifth-wheel). 2) The performances are top-notch. Costner, Connery, Martin Smith, Garcia, De Niro, and an underrated performance from Richard Bradford as Chief Dorsett really help to pull this film off. They give it all they got. They make the tragedy and drama and excitement and horror and triumpth of this film work. 3) The visuals are stunning.Read more ›

hello,my name's aaron johnson
the reason i'm writting this review for the untouchables film
is because i've seen it so many times that i enjoy how malone says his famous line to elliot , the one about getting capone
anyway, the whole entire plot is excellent
especially when the federal agents try to stop capone's men in time
the other reason i'm writting in this review , is because i've seen the untouchables tv series
and i'm wondering this very question ;
"when will the untouchables tv series from 1993
be out on dvd"
because i think that people would enjoy the entire [whatever how many seasons it ran for [if it was one or two] of the series
i'm sure a lot of other customers would appreciate the untouchables tv series on dvd

Robert De Niro and Shawn Connery are wonderfull

The Untouchables might be said to be less than the sum of its parts. Certain of those parts are very good indeed: Sean Connery gives an Oscar winning performance as a street-wise Irish-American cop, Robert De Niro is unforgettable as Al Capone (though he's not actually on screen that much), the atmosphere of Prohibition-era Chicago is elaborately and convincingly realized, and certain of the cinematic set-pieces, like the justly famous midnight shoot-out in Chicago's train station, are about as good as they can be. But against this, Kevin Costner's performance as Eliot Ness is wooden, the scenes with his family seem too goody-goody, as if the film were straining to make a point of the decent values he's defending, and, with the exception of Connery's character, it's hard to feel much empathy with either the good guys or the bad guys. All in all, an ambitious film which ends up being a bravura piece of film making but a good, not great, gangster movie. Rated R for occasional language and lots of graphic violence. Available in various DVD issues, including a recent Blu-Ray; I saw it on the 2004 Paramount standard DVD Collector's Edition, and I thought the DVD quality was very good.

I watched this when it came out decades ago and loved it then. I figured it was time to show it to my son, and he thoroughly enjoyed it too. Classic movie, the additional features were disappointing but then we just wanted to watch the movie...

A superb cast of highly talented and big stars of Hollywood! I couldn't believe that a director like Brian de Palma would have an ensemble of actors of fine performances...Sean Connery, Kevin Costner, Andy Garcia, and yes, even Robert De Niro. It's an all-star cast in a movie full of adventure and crime-wreckening investigations! What more can you ask? I definitely commend the director for a breath-taking scene to which Agent Ness fiercely show a gun-fight scene to Al Capone's boys. Sean Connery is truly deserved to be awarded of Academy Best Supporting Actor, he played Jim Mallone...who was responsible in forming the The Untouchables...too bad, he has to die in the movie.
How I wish that The Untouchables did not dissolved so fast (because members were killed by Capone's boys) so that they will came up a face to face battle with Al Capone's gangster. Though it is sufficient that De Palma showed a fight scene somewhere at the bridge but it is better if he has another fight scene at the climax of the film but he did not.
This is a good introduction film for those people who want to know the nature of gangster and somehow, know Al Capone better. To be honest, I don't like gangster movie at first, but when I watched this film...oh boy...it is one hell of a ride! Maybe I should also watch The Godfather...don't you think?
