DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Crime Drama - This is an extremely violent and extremely bloody movie. And it's not just isolated scenes. The entire movie is nearly a continuous stream of violent scenes. It's about thieving street gangs fighting each other in the slums of New York. Everything is very dirty and corrupt. The previews imply there's romance between DiCaprio and Diaz. There is but I doubt many women will find these scenes enjoyable.

Good

The above rating is an average of the critic reviews below.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "It begins, intimately, with an extreme close-up of eyes wide open. It ends, intimately, with an extreme close-up of an eye slowly shutting. Everything else in between is vast and hugely ambitious in Martin Scorsese's magisterial, scrambled historical epic Gangs of New York.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "All of this is a triumph for Scorsese, and yet I do not think this film is in the first rank of his masterpieces. It is very good but not great.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Very Good "Historians will pick apart Gangs for years. (With most current movies, why bother?) The reason: For all its lack of breathing room — it's a rare 3-hour movie that needs more — it realistically puts you into the Civil War North as much as Gone With the Wind does with the romantically idealized South.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Average "Epic, meticulously researched and ultimately disappointing, Martin Scorsese's bloody valentine to the birth of his beloved city is less than the sum of its parts.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

These are some very mixed opinions, with many of them being very low, which is what I predicted. Gangs of New York isn't a bad movie, it's just not the movie many will be expecting. If you go in knowing it's extremely violent and has virtually no romantic love story aspects, then you may find it to be entertaining. However, for most moviegoers these opinions say your probability of enjoying it isn't all that good.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
The acting is superb. The set design is incredibly realistic. You have no trouble believing you are seeing New York in the mid 1800's. The story is very dramatic but I don't believe this is a movie most people will enjoy very much due to the extreme and constant violence. You just don't ever feel much for any of the characters. There are no heartwarming, feel-good moments. There's nothing but violence. If you're going because you want to be entertained, I would look elsewhere.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The story unfolds in 1860s lower Manhattan during a period of great unrest in America. With the Civil War underway, the country was torn apart and on the brink of chaos. For the lower-class inhabitants of New York City, a war was also raging closer to home.

Their home was the Five Points, one of the poorest neighborhoods in America, where rival gangs fought continuously for control of the streets. An area of poverty and criminality between New York harbor, the flourishing Wall Street business district, and lower Broadway (home to P. T. Barnum's famous American museum), it was a magnet for underworld activity.

In this time of lawlessness and the rampant political corruption that filled the halls of city government, the film follows the story of Amsterdam Vallon (LEONARDO DICAPRIO), a young Irish-American immigrant. Released from prison after fifteen years, he returns to the Five Points bent on revenge against William Cutting, a.k.a. Bill the Butcher (DANIEL DAY-LEWIS), the powerful anti-immigrant gang leader who killed Amsterdam's father. Amsterdam knows the first step toward accomplishing his mission is to infiltrate Bill's inner circle. However, Amsterdam finds his difficulties increasing when he meets Jenny Everdeane (CAMERON DIAZ), an enigmatic pickpocket whose fierce independence and undeniable beauty fascinate him. Yet Jenny has a past too, which unexpectedly complicates his plan.

Amsterdam's journey becomes a fight, for both personal survival and to find a place for his people. The struggle reaches a fevered crescendo during the 1863 Civil War Draft Riots - the most explosive episode of urban unrest the American nation had yet seen.
