Gangs of New York is a drama movie directed by Martin Scorsese. Starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Leonardo DiCaprio and Cameron Díaz.

An amazing and epic movie.

As waves of immigrants swell the population of New York, lawlessness and corruption thrive in lower Manhattan’s Five Points section. After years of incarceration, young Irish immigrant Amsterdam Vallon (DiCaprio) returns seeking revenge against the rival gang leader (Day-Lewis) who killed his father. But Amsterdam’s personal vendetta becomes part of the gang warfare that erupts as he and his fellow Irishmen fight to carve a place for themselves in their newly adopted homeland! (Fiolmaffinity)

Movie Reviews

“It has not been worth the wait. (…) Scorsese and his team have created a heavy-footed golem of a motion picture, hard to ignore as it throws its weight around but fatally lacking in anything resembling soul.” Kenneth Turan: Los Angeles Times 

“Astonishing and audacious, the film certainly creates a kind of perverse beauty and excitement out of its horrors (…) [It] never gets you inside the story so you understand how the characters feel” Kirk Honeycutt: The Hollywood Reporter

“The film boils over with so much feeling that watching it often borders on unbearable (…) Few films of this scope and size have been as deeply felt (…) Rating: ???? (out of 4)” Chuck Rudolph: Slant
