The seeds for revenge take place in 1846, when a battle is fought against the Irish and the "native" Americans over the five points area of New York City. It is here where "Bill the Butcher" (Day-Lewis) slays Priest Vallon, whose son, Amsterdam Vallon (Dicaprio) is then taken to an orphanage. The plot unfolds when in 1863, Amsterdam returns to the five points to seek revenge against his fathers killer.

 The Wild East

19th Century New York was brutal, violent and certainly wild. For me this is as good as any Scorcese masterpiece, blending a poignant plot about vengeance in the vice city area known as The Five Points. Leonardo Di Caprio goes from strength to strength in this gritty story of the Irish Amsterdam Vallon who returns to his squalor home to take revenge on his father's behalf. Daniel Day Lewis perfectly portrays the ruthless villain of the story, and Cameron Diaz pleasantly surprised me with a strong performance. This harsh film set so realistically that it will take you straight back to this troubled period, coupled with the background story of the infamous American Civil War and a brilliant and so unpredictable ending, this movie is, in my opinion, one of the best films overlooked on the Oscar Winner list 2003.

This is a very good but flawed film by master director Scorsese. It looks back on American history to the Five points, a dark corner known to New Yorkers long ago, as the centre of vice and chaos. The cast is outstanding with the likes of DiCaprio, Day-Lewis and a slightly miscast Cameron Diaz. The settings are perfect for the on going blood bath, with it's out burst of shocking violence. But I can't help feeling that a better film was left on the editing room floor, and was cut due to the running time. Maybe one day Scorsese will release a definitive dirctors cut, and make this film the classic that it should be. So it can stand shoulder to shoulder with the other Scorsese gangster classic's such as Goodfellas, Casino and The Departed.
Although this version is edited for the running time, this is still a must buy for anybody who enjoys the Mob movies.

I watched this on saturday for the first time whilst the kids were out playing. It took about 4 hours to watch as the phone and the door bell kept on ringing. so that may play a very small part in my review. I once again felt like i had endured 4 hours of american tripe. At the end, all i wanted to do was snap the disc ( i resisted) but did sit with the realisation that I was 4 hours closer to death!

 Great - one of the best films of all time

WOW!!!!! Well what can I say about this film? It's just great in every way possible, great cast which act fantastic in the film. A great story that's easy to understand and follow. Some great fighting scene's with some good effects. This movie has the best soundtrack in a film ever, every song and instrumental is great. Everyone should see this.

One very small thing that I got confused about is they got a british actor to be leader of an all American gang, which I didn't quite understand, but Daniel Day-Lewis is a great actor.
