There really are two ways of looking at a movie when it is based on the true story When I see a movie of this type I always struggle with the two choices and usually end up somewhere in the middle The Untouchables is that kind of movieTo start off with I think that its a great film director Brian DePalmas well done work However as is usual when the tale of Al Capone and Eliot Ness is told some facts are taken with the source meterial Manufacturing a confrontation between Ness and Capone does indeed enhance the storyline in The Untouchables and for that we must thank the director and the excellent work of the operatorTo start off lets deal with Kevin Costner as he is the head of his division Costner plays Ness with his by now typical calm man demeanor manages to make him much more human more down to earth more helpless than not Ness is undecided at times and needs guidance He has a goal and a vision but also knows that he needs help to bring it about and here he gets that help from an honest beat cop named Malone essayed by ConneryConery alters his Scottish accent a lighttle to sound the Irish he plays and his sense of timing is perfectConnery truly shines as the one good cop in a rotten city And then to top it all off these two strong protagonist characters get to go up against DeNiros Al Capone It can be said that Robert DeNiro is the finest actor in Hollywood playing a decadent gangster I enjoy DeNiro so much that I tend to overlook bad things in his movies Here though he is in good company Capone is a jolly good time guy who is hard as nails and tough as steel underneath He keeps his public persona public but everyone knows that there are fists of steel in the velvet gloves
