Gangs of New York

Amsterdam Vallon's (Leonardo DiCaprio's) re-formed Dead Rabbits and Bill the Butcher's (Danial Day-Lewis') Nativists finally meet in battle. As the fighting is about to begin, the Union Navy fires on Manhattan in an attempt to quell the Draft Riots - which are just breaking out. The rioters trash the city, and in the smoke and haze, Vallon kills the Butcher. Once the riots end, Amsterdam and Jenny (Cameron Diaz) visit "The Preist's" grave overlooking the Five Points. As time passes, from the grave's view, we see New York's skyline rise - complete with the World Trade Center.
Thanks, Bobo!
