The story of FBI agent Eliot Ness's obsessive goal to bring down the notorious gangster Al Capone. Prohibition Chicago, 1931. Rampant corruption exists within the police force, and because of this Federal Agent Elliot Ness assembles a small, hand-picked team to take out Al Capone and his bootlegging empire. The team was one he could trust, one that wouldn't be bought or bribed but would risk everything, even their lives, to stop Capone's reign of terror when organised crime turned the city into a battlefield. They were The Untouchables. Gangbuster Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) meets the veteran Irish beat cop Jimmy Malone (Sean Connery) who teaches Ness the stark realities of dealing with the Mob. Malone becomes his first recruit in the battle to put Al Capone behind bars and out of business. The Untouchables is a thrilling adventure, telling a classic American story of good versus evil, handled with superb visual panache by director Brian De Palma.
