4.0 out of 5 stars Connery was never better., 2 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hunt For Red October/The Untouchables/The Presidio [DVD] (DVD)
Untouchables.Based on fact and on the original tv series we have a crackin gangster movie as Elliot Ness takes on Al Capone.Kevin Costner is Ness and Robert De Niro as Capone and a bloody great performance it is too.Connery is an aging irish beat cop that Ness includes in a group of the few non corrupted cops left in Chicago to take Capone down.Oscar winning performance from Connery here.Lots of blood and bullets,Classic movie.The Presidio,is an army base murder mystery with Connery leading the investigation into a robbery gone wrong and a woman being murdered,he teams up with a young Mark Harmon who he detests to solve the case.Connerys daughter played by Meg Ryan Falling for his unwanted partner makes sparks fly.Look out for a crackin punch up where connery takes on a huge guy and only uses his thumb to knock him out,great sequence.The Hunt For Red Of October is the first of the "Jack Ryan!"movies with Connery playing a Russian commander wanting to defect.Good triple bill with connery in his prime.The Presidio is a forgotten gem.
