THE UNTOUCHABLES: SPECIAL EDITION
THE UNTOUCHABLES - SPECIAL EDITION (15) RELEASE 13TH SEPTEMBER 2004 DVD REVIEW
Edge) and with a superlative supporting cast including SEAN CONNERY (winning an Oscar for his portrayal of veteran law enforcer Jim Malone) and ANDY GARCIA, the modern version of the prohibition-era crime caper is an excellent example of good old-fashioned story telling. The authenticity and mood of the period is evoked by the cast and brilliantly captured by De Palma's accomplished cinematography and Ennio Morricone's brilliant score.
Scenes that are now firmly rooted amongst Hollywood's all-time classics include the finale, where Ness and his beleaguered team run-down the Capone gang at Chicago's central train station. The slow-motion shot of Ness desperately grasping for a child in its pram whilst shooting at the fleeing gangsters, perfectly embodies the films ability to capture and sustain the tension of a single moment to stunning affect.
With a host of brand-new special features, including behind-the-scenes footage, stunning Collector's Edition packaging and a double-sided poster, THE UNTOUCHABLES SPECIAL EDITION is available to own on DVD from Paramount Home Entertainment from 13 th September 2004 RRP 17.99.
