The Untouchables

“They pull a knife, you pull a gun.”

After a lifetime of memorable silver screen roles, Sean Connery finally went home with the Oscar for Brian DePalma’s bristling cops vs. crooks showdown.

Mobster kingpin Robert De Niro comes out swinging a baseball bat and hittin’ homers off of people’s noggins.

Meanwhile, Kevin Costner is a true-blue good guy, but one with much to learn from the old dude next to him.

Brandishing a shotgun or a rosary, Connery’s beat cop is the heart and soul of a film which updated the old TV show, while finding its own unique path.
