Gangs of New York

Gangs of New York ★★★½

Daniel Day-Lewis steals every scene he’s in, and the production design, while still marred by the film’s ostentatious style, is admirably meticulous and aids in immersing us in the old New York setting, but it doesn’t help that several American actors play Irish characters, and the story is also forgettable despite how hard the film tries to make us care about it, especially in the final scene.
