In prohibition era Chicago, the ambitious criminal Al Capone moves in to exploit an immense bootleg market for his own profit. Together with his second, the cold-bloodedly practical Frank Nitti, Capone manages to unite the various local crime lords under his leadership and create an incredibly powerful crime syndicate. Through the use of alluring bribery to corrupt the local authorities for his purposes and brutal violence to cow or eliminate the more principled, it seems that Al Capone is above the law. However, the gang makes the critical mistake of irritating the US President one night, and the decision is made to bring Capone to justice. To that end, US Treasury agent Eliot Ness is assigned the task. Ness, who is utterly incensed by the gang violence and corruption that Capone embodies, soon learns that he cannot depend on the local police in this crusade with their rife corruption. Instead, he assembles an elite team of agents handpicked for their skills and especially their ... Written by Kenneth Chisholm <>

Definitely worth watching...
19 October 1999 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

One of my favorite movies of the 80s was "The Untouchables," and when I saw that a show was coming out on the same subject, I thought it would be another crummy TV spinoff like "Uncle Buck."

But, despite the fact that the TV show didn't have the big names of the movie version, I found the show to be much more believable and suspenseful, without the glaring anachronisms that the movie had (e.g. Frank Nitti being killed at the Capone trial in the movie).

William Forsythe (Capone) does an INCREDIBLE job...he AT LEAST equals the great Robert DeNiro's performance of the same character. Also, John Rhys-Davies and Tom Amandes give great performances and the show's writing was excellent. It's a shame it had such a crummy time slot and was canned so soon.
