30 years in the making, Martin Scorsese's Academy Award-winning epic is set in the turbulent Five Points area of New York in the mid nineteenth century. Leonardo DiCaprio plays Amsterdam Vallon, out to avenge the death of his father (Liam Neeson) at the hands of Daniel Day-Lewis' fearsome Bill the Butcher. Amsterdam succeeds in integrating himself into Bill's corrupt inner circle, which is now running the entire underworld around Five Points, and even becomes his right-hand man. However, his identity is eventually revealed and a bloody showdown ensues.

When Martin Scorsese the director of Goodfellas, Raging Bull, Casino, and Taxi Driver says that he is making his Dream Movie, then understandably a fans expectations are gonna be pretty high.
Unfortunately, as with most Hyped Up things, you are let down.
Gangs of New York is an epic movie and is a good watch, but is not a All Time Great movie.
Overall the film is okay, with a interesting story, but one that sometimes threatens to implode on itself.
I dread to imagine it without the Stunning Award Winning Central Performance by Daniel Day Lewis., who is the most watchable thing in the whole enterprise.
The film gets an extra Star on my review simply based on that performance.
I'm a big Leonardo Di Caprio fan, and he has made some truly great movies with and without Scorsese since Gangs of New York, but he is just plain average in this movie. Cameron Diaz is in my opinion miscast in her role.
One to watch and judge for yourself

I really don'y understand the mix reviews about this on . 1St off all , no need to talk any more about the movie itself , if you re interrested in th ebluray , it almost certainly means you love it and just want the best version . So yes once for all its an amazing masterpiece , final point.
This done what aboutthe bluray quality ?
Well , all extras fom the double dvd are still there and the dts track is really impressive.
Then about the picture quality , its really good , yeah froget al lthose so so review . If you have a decent tv then its just a joy .
Absolutly millions miles away from the dvd quality , its maybe not one off the best transfert ( like i am legend , dark knight ect.) but there is no major complain , its a solid hd image very clear , detailled and colorfull , and i have more than 150 bluray so i can compare with all sort off image.
And at 9.99 why still hesitate ?

 Go for the DVD instead...

Although slow-paced at certain points, the movie is definetely above average, even if it isn't Scorsese's finest hour. It depicts unknown elements of modern America's history, such as the New York ballot riots and simply for the histroical point of view it deserves a viewing.
But, the blu-ray version is horrible. Honestly, this is -by far- the worst transfer I have ever seen, and this is coming from someone with over 100 blu-rays in his collection. There is almost no difference from the standard def DVD version. A pity really, since a proper high definition transfer of the film would be a joy to behold.

 U.K Version is poor

However the the U.S Remaster is lovely. Region free, and available from other river centric stockists ;) for about 6 quid delivered. Worth it if you want to see the film as intended. If you want the U.K look with the U.S disc, watch it with a pair of tights over your head.

Long Live The Dead Rabbits!!!

 Great Film Great Acting Great Picture= Great Blu Ray!
