AL CAPONE. He ruled Chicago with absolute power. No one could touch him.
No one could stop him. - Until Eliot Ness and a small force of men swore they'd
bring him down. The Untouchables" is the story of Elliot Ness who tries to bring
down Chicago Mob boss Al Capone during the late-1920s. Illegal liquor
smuggling and other much more serious crimes are running amok and
corruption is all over. Ness realizes very fast that he must hand-pick his own
men to bring Capone down for good. Thus he enlists the help of a young cop
from the academy George Stone, a wimpy book-keeper Agent Wallace, and a
hard-nosed Irish beat cop, Jim Malone. Together they slowly start to peel
through the multiple layers of protection to get Capone for good. It seems that
the fact that Capone has been lax in paying his income taxes, which could be his
ultimate downfall.
