10 Tear-Jerking Moments In Incredibly Macho Movies

10. "What Are You Prepared To Do?" - The Untouchables

The Untouchables

The Movie:

In Brian De Palma's stylish thriller, Kevin Costner's Elliot Ness takes on Robert DeNiro's Al Capone with the help of his team of 'Untouchables' which include Sean Connery's veteran cop Malone in an Oscar winning turn. Tear Jerker Moment: After 'man's man' and fountain of wisdom Malone is brutally gunned down on his own doorstep, Elliot Ness and fellow cop George Stone (Andy Garcia) arrive at his home to witness his death - but not before Malone is able to give the location of Capone's bookkeeper to them thus ensuring Capone's conviction for tax evasion. Coughing and spitting up blood, he roars like an old lion: "What are you prepared to do?" The answer? Cry like a baby and watch Elliot Ness kill everything that moves in a train station later on. Hell, yeah!
