It doesn't hold up well, and Kevin Costner is a poof, but it's still a classic in the traditional sense.

Well visually it's made to look like a classic, but it's so hollow.

Loved Connery in it and Garcia is O.K. Hated Costner in the lead.

Hated the way they portrayed the villains. Thought De Niro's Capone was way over the top. Billy Drago's Nitti was comic book evil.

I grew up watching the TV series. The villains were just cold, heartless bastards that did what they had to do to keep making money. They didn't enjoy killing innocents.

Robert Stack's Eliot Ness was a tough guy that knew he had to be ruthless to catch the ruthless bad guys he was after. He called a dame "A dame" and probably would have beaten the crap out of one of Capone's to find out where he was.
