R | | Crime, Drama
In 1863, Amsterdam Vallon returns to the Five Points area of New York City seeking revenge against Bill the Butcher, his father's killer.
The appearance of law must be upheld, especially while it's being broken.
When Amsterdam and Jenny are kissing after the dance, Jenny says she shouldn't take off her corset because it would take to long to re-lace. In an earlier scene, her corset had a metal closure called a busk in the front, meaning it didn't have to be re-laced every time.
Noises from the modern day New York streets play over the second half of the closing credits.
