Lorna Singh's rating of the film Gangs of New York

Visually stunning,with a setting that draws us into 1860s New York.However,it seemed to have lost focus in some parts,at times trying to watch.Making me think it would have made a great miniseries. The extreme violence was disturbing,not always necessary.Daniel Day Lewis gives a great performance.
