Al Capone (Robert DeNiro) is one of the most powerful gangsters in Chicago. A boastful individual, he charms reporters one minute and murders lackeys the next. Agent Elliot Ness (Kevin Costner) wants to take him down, but the police force is very corrupt, so Ness chooses a small group of individuals to help take Capone down. He recruits veteran cop Jim Malone (Sean Connery), up-and-comer officer George Stone (Andy Garcia) and accountant/officer Oscar Wallace (Charles Martin Smith) to help him in his quest, but Capone is ready to take them all on. It's good against evil in one of the best crime dramas of the late 80s, featuring a wonderful score by Ennio Morricone and an Oscar-winning performance by Sean Connery.
