Last week’s $.99 movie was not my taste. Heck, to be honest, I wasn’t even tempted to spend the dollar to check if I might be wrong. If you saw it, let me know if I am wrong, and I will through it in my rental cue. This week’s movie is a different story all together. If you have an extra dollar burning a whole in your pocket today, head over to iTunes and rent The Untouchables (Warning: iTunes Link).
I like the the Mob story, and I love the writing of Mamet. That isn’t all this movie has going for it. It also stars Kevin Costner and Sean Connery. This is a win / win movie for me. Here is the official description:
The critics and public agree. Brian De Palma’s The Untouchables is a must-see masterpiece – glorious fierce larger-than-life depiction of the mob warlord who ruled Prohibition-era Chicago… and the law enforcer who vowed to bring him down. This classic confrontation between good and evil and stars Kevin Costner as federal agent Eliot Ness Robert De Niro as gangland kingpin Al Capone and Sean Connery as Malone the cop who teaches Ness how to beat the mob: shoot fast and shoot first.
If you loved last week’s movie, Ghost World, then maybe The Untouchables isn’t for you. If you didn’t bother with last week’s movie, then head over to iTunes with your dollar and give it a try.
