Below is the synopsis of "Gangs of New York," per IMDB.

In 1863, Amsterdam Vallon returns to the Five Points area of New York City seeking revenge against Bill the Butcher, his father's killer.

"Gangs of New York" has a 75 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. But the film is praised for its acting. Empire's Angie Errigo reviewed the praised historical drama back in early 2003. She wrote:

An ironic, emotional, gory revision of the American Experiment, marred by narrative problems but sufficiently awesome in its ambitious scale and intentions to rate as a must-see.
#TeamTheDeparted

Below is the synopsis of 'The Departed," per IMDB

An undercover cop and a mole in the police attempt to identify each other while infiltrating an Irish gang in South Boston.

"The Departed" has a 91 percent fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The film won Best Picture at the Oscars, while Scorcese finally won Best Director. NPR's Bob Mondello wrote back in 2006:

With its overcrowded marquee — Damon, DiCaprio, Nicholson, Wahlberg, Sheen — and Martin Scorsese as the real draw for gangster flick fans anyway, this crime thriller is a profane, blood-drenched joy to watch.
