Batter Up – The Untouchables (3/10) Movie CLIP (1987) HD

What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that
which gives me joy? Guest: Dames!
Guest 2: Music! Opera!
Booze! Baseball! (guests laugh and applaud) A man… A man stands alone at a plate. This is the time for what?
(guests murmur responses) For individual achievement. (guests murmur agreements) There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork. Teamwork.
Guests: Teamwork. Looks, throws, catches, hustles.
Part of one big team. (guests murmur agreements) Bats himself the livelong day,
babe ruth, ty cobb and so on. (chuckling) If his team don’t field, What is he? Nothing.
Guests: Nothing. You follow me?
(guests murmur agreements) No one. Sunny day, the stands
are full of fans. What does he have to say? I’m going out there
for myself. But… I get nowhere Unless the team wins. Team!
Team. (thud, fork drops) Guest:
Jesus christ! (shocking, suspenseful
theme plays)


Lost his head
His head wasnt in the game
Taking one for team
Not so head strong after all
No longer one of the head guys
He was headed in the wrong direction.
Didnt get his head straight.

Back then, something like this would happen then everyone would shake hands and move on.
These days, the dude would just die.

De Niro is very good, but… not so good like the Method monsters: Brando, Pacino… His style is more spontaneous, like Nickolson

In my opinion i feel this film, in comparison to the untouchables series with Robert Stack, as Elliott Ness, was too fictional and hollywood. Where as the series, was fairly fact based, and the acting was superior.

I remember my father covering my eyes when I was a kid and this scene occurred.
I could still see through his fingers but acted like I couldn’t.
Freaked me out .

Saw somewhere else here that He did kill a guy with a baseball bat. Al was a gangster, with a sense of humour perhaps, but he was still a gangster.

Another actor that should have kept his political beliefs to himself now he's just another big old pile of democratic s***

This scene in one form or another has been imitated in other scenarios such as new Jack city (although Nino Brown used a sword) and The Walking Dead (although Negan used a bat with Barb wire around it).
Even I imitated this scene around friends only I used one of those yellow plastic bats

He hit that one out of the park. Remember PART OF A TEAM. I’ll say that to my players in football without the baseball bat I think

You already knew someone was gonna get Wacked with that bat. U gotta love those sound editors. I wonder what they used to create those head splitting sound effects?

Butterò giù le vostre pedine..poi arriverò a voi….😈💀☠️🎃👻🤶🧚👽🛸 bubusettete pezzi di merda

The thing I like about this was the sound.
Now I'm not exactly happy to say this, but unfortunately I've heard a bat connect with a skull before…. it's that initial sound you hear in the movie that represents true life so shockingly well.
That second sound though! Jesus wept, that crunch, fracture sound.
Luckily I've never heard THAT, but it sounds extremely authentic.
Brutal scene, so well acted, and Deniro is just a class act at these kind of portrayals.

I'd love to do that to Nicola Sturgeon and Alex Salmond as they're sipping on a haggis and turnip cocktail chatting about being king and queen of all they survey. Then bang.
