Is 'Gangs of New york' a nice film? i am feeling bored and want to rent a couple of videos to enjoy. This film seems to portray the history of new york well.

I didn't like it at all. I even hated it, and I really can't point out why.

One of Martin Scorcese's best films i think.


Leonardo Dicrapio and Daniel Lewis incredible acting jobs, the film is really one of the finer films of the last few years.

Of course it's violent, but what do you expect? Is Goodfellas a cartoon? I mean come on.

Oh my god. Nothing against you but...you like seeing people eat other people alive?

Well anyhow...I don't think that you could compare the Godfather to Gangs of New York.

i always like to watch things that considered immoral with gore in it but in real life i am not like that. I am always fascinated over cannibalism.

I thought it was rather good. It is extremely violent, as pointed out, but if that doesn't bother you, 'tis good. (although I still find it humorous that the same people who drug their kids to The Jesus Chainsaw Massacre would shudder with repulsion at such a film as this)

Good one. I actually had to laugh quite a lot because of this statement; I do witness that thing happening.

I didn't find Gangs of New York interesting. The story wasn't compelling, I never had any sympathy for Amsterdam (Leo), and frankly, the history of the city of New York holds no fascination for me.

Very good movie, but not what I would call an action movie.

Its a great movie with action in it.

There is good characterization, good cinemtography, good dialogue, etc.

Not quite one of my favorites, but I have seen it multiple times and will see it more.
