Vicenarian Richard travels to Thailand and finds himself in possession of a strange map. Rumours state that it leads to a solitary beach paradise, a tropical bliss. Excited and intrigued, he sets out to find it.
In the god-forsaken district of early-1860's Lower Manhattan known as the Five Points, the vicious Nativist, Bill "The Butcher" Cutting, is the supreme overlord of an area riddled with crime, prostitution, theft and murder, as the American Civil War still rages on. Sixteen whole years after the brutal murder of his father from Bill's blood-stained hands, an orphaned Irish-American, Amsterdam Vallon, returns to this melting pot of corruption to avenge his untimely death; however, a lot has changed since then. Who can remember the once innocent boy and now a young man bent on revenge, who works his way up to the hierarchy of Five Points? Will Amsterdam ever taste the dangerous but sweet fruit of retribution?Written by
During the opening scene before the fight, 'Priest' Vallon recites the St. Michael prayer for his son. The year of the scene was set before the Civil War. The St. Michael prayer was not yet recited nor prayed until 1884 when it was written by Pope Leo XIII in 1884. It would of not been known or prayed as is in movie during the year of the scene took place. See more »
I went to 'Gangs' on Christmas day with a large group of family. A few fell asleep, and some of us wish we had. This was a terrible show! Zero character development, no plot, and gratuitous violence. Now, I'm okay with the violence if it is relevant to the story, but there was no story here. Out of the ten, or so, I saw this show with, one liked it. The rest of us wanted the last three hours back. What a terrible waste of our holiday.
