Gangs of New York (2002)

CULT – 1

Verdict – 4/5


Pros –
1) Daniel Day-Lewis as Bill the Butcher – Probably his definitive role.It’s a shame he didn’t win the Oscar for this role.
2) Music: “Shimmy She Wobble” – Dead Rabbits riot


Cons –
1) To make the movie an “epic“, the length is unnecessarily increased. For the first 2 hrs, the story is stuck in the same place.The movie kick-starts once Amsterdam’s identity is revealed.
2) Epic start but not an epic climax.
3) Son returns to avenge his father’s death – secretly working for his father’s killer eventually killing him – every 80’s Bollywood movie ever.


Quote –
Bill: That, my friends, is the minority vote.
