Synopsis

It's all-out war on the streets of 1920s Chicago in this slick, stylish and very violent Prohibition-era gangster movie. Federal agent Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner in clean-cut hero mode) is determined to bring down infamous gangland boss Al Capone (Robert De Niro), so he assembles a ruthless team of "untouchable" law-enforcers to smash Capone's empire of organised crime. Among them is Irish beat cop Malone, who teaches Ness the best way to fight the Mob: "Shoot fast and shoot first".

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
