Federal Agent Eliot Ness sets out to stop Al Capone; because of rampant corruption, he assembles a small, hand-picked team.
Streamlined entertainment without any depth; quite enjoyable for ist sheer professionalism in all departments.
Halliwell**: "The long-running TV show is given a new polish in this showy, violent gangster picture, which seemed to please all classes."
Maltin****: "High-energy entertainment that packs a wallop...Fluidly (and flamboyantly) filmed, with powerhouse performances by Connery..., and De Niro, as a grandiose Al Capone. Climactic shoot-out, with echoes of POTEMKIN, will have you on the edge of your seat!"
