Talk about heavyweights: Robert de Niro and Kevin Costner have won two Academy Awards apiece, while Sean Connery was knighted in 2000, and his performance as an incorruptible cop in The Untouchables finally earned him an Oscar that was long overdue.

Al Capone (Robert de Niro), one of the most powerful Mafia bosses in American history, has nearly every law enforcer in Chicago on his payroll. Two exceptions are Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) and Jim Malone (Sean Connery). They assemble a team with the moral courage to bring Capone to book.
