Crime drama famous film Director by Brian De Palma, which is known primarily for its excellent picture "a Person with a scar,", is devoid of such beautiful brutality, presented in the aforementioned film with al Pacino. However, tells a very interesting story of the struggle of a small team of justice with crime king of Chicago late 20's — beginning of 30-ies of the last century invulnerable al Capone.

Hero Kevin costner, only with the increase in the service in law enforcement, there also declares war on al Capone (Robert De Niro), hunted illegally by selling alcohol during times prohibition. Due to the clandestine sales vysokoshirotnoi poison, the Italian has amassed exorbitant wealth that allowed to run criminal hands in all the spheres of the multimillion-dollar Chicago, by bribing the most senior people of the famous city. Its Empire without would be grow to an unprecedented scale, if I managed to expand the scope of criminal acts and in the nearby town of Illinois. Prevented this brave and honest hard worker Eliot ness (Kevin costner), devoid of the fear of the exaggerated threat.

Eliot finds companions in person experienced police officer Jim Malone (Sean Connery), a young and ambitious the shooter George stone (Andy Garcia) and highly educated accountant Oscar Wallace (Charles Martin Smith). Each of the team members of true justice makes a huge contribution to the overthrow of the king of the underworld with the Golden throne, built with the help of corrupt dirty money.

However, special attention is a hero of incomparable Sean Connery, has received the coveted statuette prestigious prize "Oscar" for "the Best male role of the second plan". It hero have seen a lot on my time, so its a huge experience allows to inspire the rest of the members of the order to all sorts of deeds without fear reproach.

Robert De Niro in again demonstrated virtuosity of acting, a matchless playing in the image of the elusive criminal, giving it clear gloss floating in the air force and cruelty, perfectly embodied in a memorable scene of the beating with a baseball bat one of the unbearable severely delinquent "sixes" terrible boss.

Kevin costner played, maybe one of the best roles in the beginning of his career, inspiring hope in the hearts of millions of audience that justice still has it the hero of the people, implicitly reaching in the crater of the volcano the underworld, ready with easy to absorb any opponent.

Tape "untouchable" Bryan De the palm tree, though not as popular as a picture "the Person with a scar," this Director, the has original bright atmosphere unwavering faith in justice, which is able to cleanse the world from the wicked evil.

- If you now in the door, fall in a world of trouble, and back now no.

Due to the fact that from the cinema observed a great interest in Alfonso Capone (he devoted about thirty films and TV series; for comparisons on the life of Nelson Mandela taken only one tape, which shows that much easier to win the hearts of people, killing them, rather than fighting for their right), movie buff knows a lot about the famous Chicago gangster. He was involved in bootlegging, gambling and pimping, in all its glory representing the organized crime. Illegal income Capone was legalized through a network of own cheap laundries, where legend the expression goes, "to launder money".

However, this picture devoted not as many dirty deeds of a famous mobster, how much reckless courage of those whom he caught behind bars. Brave, dealt a blow to Empire Capone was "untouchable" — eleven people, angered by the fact that due to extensive connections in policy clever tricks the king of crime calmly walks on freedom. However, shrinkage and the outage did the trick — De Palm heroes left only four of affected in a favorable way to entertainment less favorable — on authenticity. But this sin, and the series, which served as the basis for film who will let's kill all inaccuracies.

Company catching Capone got very colorful: bespectacled accountant, old man, policeman, young and hot student and unwavering in his integrity agent. Clearly, of course, Sean Connery (the notorious district), quite naturally received the "Oscar". But if the award of second place, then I would not identified touted all costner, and beginner Andy Garcia (cadet): if someone and deserve the "BAFTA", then he is. the king of gangsters, Chicago has played (who would doubt) Robert De Niro, but I must admit that despite all the attempts should be used to the role he played it to the level of fillers.

By cinematic standards, the show-off "Untouchables" not limited sir Connery: here and the music of Morricone, and costumes Armani, and Mamet's script. Speaking of the latest: I was somewhat surprised that Ebert spoke in the spirit of "the background and style in the film much more interesting plot" and thus praised Mamet's calling "a classic master of words". In my opinion, any pattern, to which a hand this good writer, but unfortunately — a bad writer, will be interesting in the first background and style (and cast, if the casting does not failed), and in the worst case not will be interesting at all. To the same in the Untouchables Mamet and De Palma found each other — last also pays more attention to the surroundings than the fact.

However, my grumbling nor in any way does not negate the fact that the film is not bad: it can be revised a couple of times at least for a worthy acting and a small melodramatic notes, which is not sinking in all the violence. Much later, this successful balance used John Hillcoat in"Lawless", and then the picture of Brian to take effect not only the average viewer.

Movies shot long ago, as a rule, quickly become obsolete and a few years after the release of look, well as low banal. But with the Untouchables brown Depalma this, as not weird, not have occurred even more than that ! After all, it is not just a very good film — is a true classic of the crime genre, it is worthy of the title "cult" movie ! Let's consider more in detail...

the untouchables tells the story of Eliot ness — exemplary family man and exemplary COP, ready for all for the sake of fulfilling their purpose. After a failed attempt to prevent a crime, ness realized that makes no sense to work with regular police, many of whom are men, so I created my own team of the elderly, but a very experienced police officer Jim Malone, a young agent — I am — Giuseppe Petri and sent the office of the accountant Oscar Wallace. Them the main enemy was al Capone, the king of the underworld of America, the colossus, the whose feet lay the whole city of Chicago...

Very strong movie, well-shot, and still then, looking very efektno. How to me, the untouchables — the best film made by producer Brian Depalmas, after a magnificent "Persons with a scar,", of course. This film looks on one breath, because — what the viewer is very interesting to observe the events on the screen. Each frame of this brilliant Kinopalats filled with life and match which I want to merge together.

About the actors should be discussed separately. All they worked just great. Kevin costner perfectly plays the role of Elliot, and even though that is near Sean Connery and Robert DeNiro, looked quite decent. Robert DeNiro just plays great role al Capone. The look is very authentic and interesting. The famous agent 007 with Sean Connery chic sheen plays the role of Jim. Perhaps it is better than anyone had opened the way, but that was awarded the "Oscar". So — I really want to celebrate a very young but Andy Garcia, who remarkably played the role of Italian COP Giuseppe.

I really want to highlight the great music of the genius composer Ennio Morricone. She is in harmony with the film you can just listen to infinity.

Brief. is Simply gorgeous classic pattern brown Depalma, which is certainly worth a watch to all true film lovers. And not because it's a classic, and no collection and because the untouchables really worth it.
