this is a Martin Scorsese epic,and it certainly has that epic feel.i'm
not sure how accurate it is historically,or if things really looked the
way they do in the movie.i still liked the look of it.to me,it seems a
lot of work went into the whole production and it shows.Daniel Day
Lewis is astonishing(nothing new for him).Leonardo DiCaprio was also
good.Cameron Diaz was not bad,but she didn't really impress me all that
much.her character wasn't as substantial as it could have been.like in
many movie,there's a good supporting cast.the movie is brutally
violent,which is probably an accurate depiction of that time.it is over
two and a half hours long,but it doesn't feel like it.i found myself
becoming very quickly and easily involved in the story,a sign of a good
movie.i wouldn't call it a masterpiece,but it is a very good movie.for
me,Gangs of New York is a 4/5

The man who wanted to quit filmmaking around the time Martin Scorsese came about with this role really created a superb character since he changed his mind... not only that, but most of his roles onward were just about as wonderful, twisted, complex, but never dull.

As for the story, acting and everything else in the film, it's a superb undertaking and achievement to see such an old New York at it's beginning, with Scorsese's usual directing. Cameron Diaz also is very much out of her element here, playing dramatic character with a nice consistency and believability. DiCaprio's character is mostly under-played, with an ever-present rage and desire for vengeance, but nothing is that easy in the world, and Scorsese makes sure most of my expectations were met and then some.

This is the remastered version, which holds a much better transfer than the former edition, so if you have money to put on this title, this is the version to get, since it still holds every single special feature from the former edition.

One of my favorite Martin Scorsese pictures, Gangs of New York never outstays its welcome even if it lasts 167 minutes... my advice? Get it :)

This film is one of those movies that gets credit with those who have seen it, and is unknown for those who haven't. Seriously. the time is necessary to take out and watch this movie. You will not regret it, and I cannot afford to spoil it in this review! I can only say that I have never met anyone who has had bad things to say about Gangs of New York.

There's too much detail to get into for this movie. The plot is simple enough, but the story is drawn out so meticulously and shown so beautifully, it needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. The acting is amazing. The sets are just incredible. How great is it to see a movie that looks so amazing, yet is not completely done up on CGI!
Scorcese's best work in years - If not ever!

super film
Excellent, Scorsese rend un scénario simple très profond avec beaucoup de réflexion. Je suis fasciné par la ville de l'ancien New-York ! Les décors sont absolument hallucinants, le casting est convaincant... Un très bon film !

By Cheryl TOP 50 REVIEWER on July 4 2010
Format: Blu-ray
Behind Gangs of New York is a fascinating yet neglected history. There is much artistry to be admired in this film, from its well-researched expansive set design and photography, to detailed minor props and costumes, but mainly it's the accurately vicious and corrupt portrayal of a forgotten era that is the main standout. The blu-ray is gorgeous and well-worth viewing, despite the epic film's possible flaws (i.e. questionable casting, or nonexistent physical changes despite the passage of 16 brutal years). As bonus material, there are a number of featurettes including the discovery channel special, "Uncovering The Real Gangs of New York", which verifies the film's depiction, and references its real life characters. Additionally, there is a commentary by director Martin Scorsese who is himself, a walking film historian and reference guide.

Bill "The Butcher" Cutting: how subtle is that for a name? The only reason I didn't include this Oscar-nominated performance on my list of "The Baddest of the Bad" is because I hadn't thought of it at the time that list was created. Perhaps it was too recent. Or perhaps it is because I have only seen Gangs of New York once and am waiting for it to come out on DVD on July 1 so I can view it a second and third time, the latter of which I will be listening to Martin Scorsese's commentary track during. As far as I know, this is only Scorsese's second commentary, the first being the one for The Last Temptation of Christ. But during that one he shared talk time with screenwriting legend and longtime collaborator-of-his Paul Scrader as well as Willem Dafoe, who played Jesus, and Jay Cocks, who as far as I can tell had nothing to do with the whole sacrilegious shebang, unless of course he co-wrote or at least had a hand in writing the script, which is a distinct possiblity (I can't remember the commentary well enough to say.) Anyway, as much as I liked Chris Cooper's gap-toothed Orchid Thief in Adaptation, which, after all, can be found on my "Ten by the Coppola Clan" list, Daniel Day-Lewis should have won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 2002. He chewed up every scene he was in and spit it right back out in the audience's collective face. He stole the show. I wish he would act more often. All he needs is a nice, juicy role that he can sink his teeth into. Speaking of teeth, another good baddie is Francis Dollarhyde, a.k.a. "The Tooth Fairy," as played by Ralph Fiennes in Red Dragon. And who could forget Hannibal the Cannibal, the number one baddie of all time according to the American Film Institute? But this is neither the time nor the place for serial killers.Read more ›
