English Description:

The Untouchables is a 1987 American crime film directed by Brian De Palma, produced by Art Linson, written by David Mamet, and based on the book of the same name (1957). The film stars Kevin Costner, Charles Martin Smith, Andy García, Robert De Niro, and Sean Connery, and follows Eliot Ness (Costner) as he forms the Untouchables team to bring Al Capone (De Niro) to justice during Prohibition. The Grammy Award–nominated score was composed by Ennio Morricone and features period music by Duke Ellington.

The Untouchables premiered on June 2, 1987 in New York City, and went into general release on June 3, 1987 in the United States. The film grossed $106.2 million worldwide and received generally positive reviews from critics. It was nominated for four Academy Awards; Connery won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. 

In 1930, during Prohibition, the notorious gangland kingpin Al Capone supplies illegal liquor and has nearly the entire city of Chicago under his control. Bureau of Prohibition agent Eliot Ness has been tasked with bringing a stop to Capone's activities, but his first attempt at a liquor raid fails due to corrupt policemen tipping Capone off. He then has a chance meeting with a veteran Irish-American officer, Jimmy Malone, who opposes the rampant corruption and offers to help Ness, suggesting they find a man from the police academy who has not yet come under Capone's influence and still believes in the idealistic aspects of law enforcement. They recruit Italian-American trainee George Stone (birth name Giuseppe Petri) for his superior marksmanship and integrity. Joined by accountant Oscar Wallace, assigned to Ness from Washington, D.C., they conduct a successful raid on a Capone liquor cache and start to gain positive publicity, with the press dubbing them "The Untouchables." Capone later kills the gangster in charge of the cache as a warning to his other subordinates.

Wallace discovers that Capone has not filed an income tax return for four years and suggests that the team try to build a tax evasion case against him (as Capone's network keeps him well-insulated from his other crimes). An alderman offers Ness a bribe to drop his investigation, but Ness angrily refuses it. After Capone's enforcer Frank Nitti threatens Ness's family, Ness immediately moves his wife and daughter to a safe house. In a subsequent raid on the Canadian border, Ness and his team intercept an incoming liquor shipment. They kill several gangsters and capture a Capone bookkeeper named George, whom they eventually persuade to collaborate. Back in Chicago, as Wallace escorts George from the police station to a safe house, a disguised Nitti shoots both of them dead. Ness confronts Capone at the Lexington Hotel after the murders, but Malone intervenes, urging Ness to focus on persuading the district attorney not to dismiss the charges against Capone.

 

Hungarian Summary:

„1930. A tíz éve törvénybe iktatott teljes szesztilalom következtében, Amerika-szerte elharapózott a bűnözés. Felszámolását a rendőri és vámhatósági kihágások szinte lehetetlenné teszik. Chicagóban a milliárdos üzletet jelentő szeszcsempészet, Al Capone (Robert De Niro) kezében összpontosul.” Al Capone kezében van az egész város (még Chicago polgármesterére is hatást gyakorol). Az illegális szeszkereskedelem felszámolására Eliot Nesst (Kevin Costner) bízzák meg.

Ness az informátorától fülest kap, hogy ma éjjel, nagy rakományú kanadai whisky érkezik. A rajtaütés azonban rosszul sül el, hisz' nem alkoholt találnak a ládákban, hanem esernyőket. Ennek ellenére Eliot nem adja fel, és segítséget kér a megvesztegethetetlen ír rendőrtiszttől, Jim Malone-től (Sean Connery), hogy szervezzenek egy csapatot a szeszcsempészet ellen. Malone visszautasítja az ajánlatot, így első segítsége Oscar Wallace (Charles Martin Smith), a washingtoni revizor lesz. Jim másnap visszatér, és elmondja, hogy segít Capone legyőzésében. Malone szerint Al Capone az egész rendőrséget a kezében tartja, így nem bízhatnak senkiben. Ezért közvetlenül a Rendőrtiszti Főiskolára mennek, ahol mély benyomást tesz rájuk az olasz-amerikai George Stone (korábban Giuseppe Petri) (Andy García. Így Eliot, Jim, Oscar és George személyében összeáll a csapat, hogy felvegyék a harcot Al Capone ellen.

Első sikeres támadásuk a posta volt, ahol több száz palack illegális italt tartottak. Capone tudomást szerez róla, amit az emberei között véresen megtorol: vacsoránál a posta főnökének fejét szétveri egy baseballütővel. Capone, Eliotékat először pénzzel akarja lefizetni, azonban ez nem sikerül, így Frank Nitti (Bill Drago) Ness családjának a bántalmazásával fenyegeti őt (ezért aztán Eliot feleségét és gyermekét egy biztonságosabb helyre küldi).
