Based in 1860’s New York, Amsterdam Vallon is an Irish immigrant who was just released from prison. He decides that he wants revenge on the man that killed his father - a large anti-immigration gang leader. In order to do so, however, he must find his way into the man’s inner circle so that he can get as close to him as possible. This historical drama draws on America’s past as well as the innate desire to find one’s place in the world and seek justice for the ones that they love. The movie is interesting, charming, and suspenseful. I would rate this film 4/5 stars and recommend it to crime and history lovers. @The_Reviewer of the Teen Review Board of the Hamilton Public Library
