| Powerful performance by Daniel Day-Lewis
Gangs of New York was is an epic historical crime movie directed by Martin Scorsese and stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Daniel Day-Lewis, Cameron Diaz, Jim Broadbent, John C. Reilly, Henry Thomas, Brendon Gleeson, Stephen Graham and Liam Neeson in a special appearance.

The movie is a must watch classic which displays the birth of America and yes through bloody violence and brawls.

The movie displays the greatnesses of Martin Scorsese and his imagination and scope to take out the best from a simple revenge plot.

Acting should be appreciated by all the characters but Daniel Day-Lewis steals the show by his brutal violence in a gentle way.

The screenplay of the movie is slow but captivating and hold the viewers. Location of 1840 America is amazing and background music is good. It wouldn't be wrong to say that this is one of the finest piece of work by Martin Scorsese and a must watch for the viewers who like periodic movies.
