Shake the Scene: The Untouchables

The Untouchables (1987)

The Untouchables

The Scene: Part…of…a…TEAM!

Why I Love This Scene: This scene speaks all for itself on how awesome it is. Probably my favorite DePalma movie and probably the only time Robert De Niro doesn’t take himself too seriously as an actor. Sure he turned in one helluva performance as infamous Chicago businessman Al Capone but he hammed it up big time. When De Niro cuts loose and starts to chew scenery in his roles we get very memorable and fun performances (Cape Fear and The Fan are also prime examples). Now while Sir Sean Connery won an Academy Award for his role as a tough Irish cop, De Niro’s role is far from forgettable.
