Amsterdam Vallon, son of the Rabbits' murdered leader, is seeking vengeance for his father's death at the hands of Bill 'The Butcher', head of the Native Americans who are in cahoots with a deeply corrupt Tammany Hall..."Gangs of New York" has long been a cult book. It is now the latest major film from Martin Scorsese.
