Though flawed, the sprawling, messy Gangs of New York is redeemed by impressive production design and Day-Lewis's electrifying performance. The visuals are strong, while the central narrative is weak a disastrous combination for a long movie. Worst of all, Gangs of New York achieves far too little while trying much too hard.
Barbara Ellen. It's never less than compelling, driven by an overwhelming, larger than life performance from Day-Lewis and by Scorsese's grandiose historical imagination. As to what he means by it, I doubt he knows. Sandra Hall. Wonderful spectacle, terrific acting and toweringly great film-making. Peter Bradshaw. The result reverberates on the screen with a deadly force and fury more intense than anything Mr. Scorsese has yet achieved on the meanest and most beloved streets he could imagine or recall. Andrew Sarris.
What we're left with has the patness of a history lesson about our roots and the melting pot and what it means to be an American. Peter Rainer. You simply have to applaud the magnitude and ambition of Scorsese's vision - it really is New York conceived of on a grand scale.
PJ Nabarro. One of the most provocative films from Hollywood in recent times. Namrata Joshi. Gangs of New York is one of those haunting failures. I can't get over it; it still gives me a pang every time I think of it. It seemed so filled with potential. Eileen Jones. It's a punishing piece of work, this Gangs of New York. Spectacular, brilliant, but punishing-basically, one long brawl Amy Taubin.
Scorsese scores some fine political points along the way and demonstrates the mastery of his craft in every scene, but the underlying theme of brutal revenge at any cost loses its way too early on James Wegg.

Gangs of New York Movie Review
View All Photos. Movie Info The violent rise of gangland power in New York City at a time of massive political corruption and the city's evolution into a cultural melting pot set the stage for this lavish historical epic, which director Martin Scorsese finally brought to the screen almost 30 years after he first began to plan the project. In , as waves of Irish immigrants poured into the New York neighborhood of Five Points, a number of citizens of British and Dutch heritage who were born in the United States began making an open display of their resentment toward the new arrivals.
William Cutting Daniel Day-Lewis , better known as "Bill the Butcher" for his deadly skill with a knife, bands his fellow "Native Americans" into a gang to take on the Irish immigrants; the immigrants in turn form a gang of their own, "The Dead Rabbits," organized by Priest Vallon Liam Neeson.
How Historically Accurate is the movie Gangs of New York?
After an especially bloody clash between the Natives and the Rabbits leaves Vallon dead, his son goes missing; the boy ends up in a brutal reform school before returning to the Five Points in as Amsterdam Leonardo DiCaprio. Now a strapping adult who has learned how to fight, Amsterdam has come to seek vengeance against Bill the Butcher, whose underworld control of the Five Points through violence and intimidation dovetails with the open corruption of New York politician "Boss" Tweed Jim Broadbent.
Amsterdam gradually penetrates Bill the Butcher's inner circle, and he soon becomes his trusted assistant. Amsterdam also finds himself falling for Jenny Everdeane Cameron Diaz , a beautiful but street-smart thief who was once involved with Bill. Amsterdam is learning a great deal from Bill, but before he can turn the tables on the man who killed his father, Amsterdam's true identity is exposed, even though he has concealed it from nearly everyone, including Jenny.
