Gangs of New York
Drama • R • 2002 • 2 hr 48 min
Just amazing watched many times never gets old.
Great performance by Daniel Day-Lewis in this epic historical crime drama in 1860’s New York. Excellent direction by Scorsese.
Executed well, however, because it’s a period piece movie, it’s slow and the dialogue is okay. Not my favourite Scorsese film, but alright.
Two thirds are excellent, the last part is very rushed and messy.
Daniel Day Lewis steals the show here with a powerhouse performance as Bill the Butcher, a phenomenal period piece from Scorsese
A brutal and gory story on how aristocracy view the common people and will fuel their worst traits for their own gains.
A gangster epic with a monstrous runtime to back it up. Great acting and cinematography throughout.
A very different take on a mob movie but it works well and how different the costumes are and how they act makes it a movie you'll remember.
Civil war epic that takes you on a long but powerful journey
A little too bloated and operatic for it’s own good, but I respect the message. Even mid level Scorsese is thoughtful and entertaining.
