Untouchables is a great movie

christopher c., Newegg
11 April 2014
  • Pros: Untouchables is a great movie that I wish I could rate more 5 stars. This movies is a classic, and not only a great crime thiller but a great movie under any genre. Untouchables features the amazing acting of Robert Deniro. The Untouchables is a 1987 American crime drama directed by Brian De Palm...

Almost No Redeeming Qualities

Streetballa, IMDb
17 March 2009
  • Summary: I was not expecting this movie to be this bad. 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.

should have been much better

HelloTexas11, IMDb
25 May 2008
  • Summary: I've been debating how hard to come down on 'The Untouchables' since I watched it again the other day. I don't know anything about the background of the film; whether it was made in a hurry or if there were problems with the production or a lot of re-shooting afterward.

Never stop fighting till the fight is done, here endeth the lesson.

Spikeopath, IMDb
4 March 2008
  • Summary: As good a gangster movie that has ever been made as DePalma does justice to Mamet's electric script. The acting on show is right out of the top draw, the inevitable ease that DeNiro puts menace into Capone is quite impressive, whilst the fresh faced pugnacious tenacity of Andy Garcia's George Stone...

The sum of its good individual components, no more

Flagrant-Baronessa, IMDb
25 December 2006
  • Summary: Director Brian De Palma is the son of a surgeon, and perhaps this explains his high tolerance for the bloodshed that has translated into brutal, raw scenes in 'The Untouchables'. Then again, this film is set during one of the bloodiest chapters of American history and demands unflinching depiction...

My Favorite!

MinorityReporter, IMDb
21 September 2005
  • Summary: Quite a few words spring to my mind when I think of The Untouchables. Words like: Excellence, entertainment, larger than life and Sean Connery. These words basically summarize the entire film from my point of view of course because in my opinion (which I don't expect people to agree with) this is...

Brian De Palma's Masterpiece

jcanettis, IMDb
30 January 2005
  • Summary: "The Untouchables" is in my opinion De Palma's greatest work, with his other masterpiece, namely "Scarface", coming a very close second. In "Scarface" the focus is on a paranoid and self-destructive gangster who rises to meteoric heights and then falls; in "The Untouchables" the focus is on a very...

Few Films Can Touch Its Excellence.

tfrizzell, IMDb
31 July 2002
  • Summary: Outstanding production that was the best film of 1987 with the exception of the very dominant "The Last Emperor". "The Untouchables" is the story of Elliot Ness (perfectly played by Kevin Costner) who tries to bring down Chicago Mob boss Al Capone (Robert DeNiro in one of his most under-rated roles)...
