Gangs of New York Reviews

Page 1 of 11

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...

Brilliant but devastating. High schoolers and up.

EmanuelLevy.Com

One of Scorsese's weakest films, a wannabe historical epic that's essentially a formulaic revenge saga; the only reason to see it is Daniel Day-Lewis' compelling performance as Bill the Butcher.

The whole may not add up to the sum of its parts, but it's difficult to dismiss the brilliance of those parts.

It's a story of such relevance to New York, to America and even to the rest of the world, that just had to be told on film with as much impact as a filmmaker can muster. And Martin Scorsese musters much.

The impact is all in the broad strokes of Scorsese's design: the corresponding coming-of-age stories of three confused and violent adolescents: Amsterdam Vallon, New York City, and America. [Blu-Ray]

Why did Scorsese spend three decades thirsting to make this movie? It's nowhere clear on the screen.

Gangs becomes a standard revenge opus. And a long one at that.

It's a story of violence, revenge, racial intolerance and class struggle, and it's a story told extremely well.

Martin Scorseses dream project finally explodes on the screen after years of planning and another year of delays.

It's never less than compelling, driven by an overwhelming, larger than life performance from Day-Lewis and by Scorsese's grandiose historical imagination.

Looking Closer

Day-Lewis's sneering, roaring, monstrous performance as the Butcher will remind you of the seemingly superhuman work Robert DeNiro performed in his prime.

Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)

Daniel Day-Lewis' magnetic portrayal of a 19th-century ganglord who butchered his enemies as readily as he carved up a freshly killed hog.

Rob Nelson
City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

Gangs is Scorsese's impassioned, elegiac portrait of a time when blows were delivered with fists, bats, and blades rather than airplanes, anthrax, or keyboard strokes; it's his look back at a lost world, his urban western.

EDGE Boston

Martin Scorcese delivers an enormous blowout of a film, a biopic of New York in the 1800s... but it's too much bombast and far too loose.
