The name of a magical person, character..he only can do this movie. The name itself gives a feel to see the movie. The violent rise of gangland power in New York City at a time of massive political corruption and the city’s evolution into a cultural melting pot set the stage for this lavish historical epic, which director Martin Scorsese finally brought to the screen almost 30 years after he first began to plan the project.
In 1846, Irish immigrants came to the New York neighborhood of Five Points, a number of citizens of British and Dutch heritage who were born in the United States began a direct war in between. William Cutting (Daniel Day-Lewis), better known as “Bill the Butcher” for his deadly skill with a knife, bands his fellow “Native Americans” into a gang to take on the Irish immigrants; the immigrants in turn form a gang of their own, “The Dead Rabbits,” organized by Priest Vallon (Liam Neeson). William cutting kills Priest and his son goes missing.
The son Amsterdam (Leonardo DiCaprio) who has learned how to fight, has come to seek vengeance against Bill the Butcher. Amsterdam gets the respect of William, and he soon becomes his trusted assistant.
Amsterdam falls in love with Jenny Everdeane (Cameron Diaz), a beautiful but street-smart thief who was once involved with Bill. Amsterdam is learning a great deal from Bill, but before he can turn the tables on the man who killed his father, Amsterdam’s true identity is exposed, even though he has concealed it from nearly everyone, including Jenny.
After that diccaprio forms a gang like his father and kills William. Both villain,ad hero takes place in our hearts.
One of the best movies of leonardo, see this before you die!!!
