4.5 America for the Americans stuartfear | 29/12/2012 | See all stuartfear's reviews (768) Early America and wars on the streets, yanks taking on anyone who wishes to step foot on their land. It's a simple story to follow but it's filled with great writing. Revenge is a dish best served cold as some of the characters in this story will discover. Despite some dodgy accents, the acting is first rate. Daniel Day Lewis proves once again he is on the best actors in history with his portrayal of Bill the Butcher, he is a brutal and ruthless man who yet seems to have morals. Scorsese's directing has taken a turn in this one, it's a different look but it seems to work. Overall, this is a fantastic movie, very enjoyable and well worth the almost 3 hour viewing time.
