EXCLUSIVE: Script Review: GANGS OF NEW YORK

Character wise the team did a good job as well. Each is completely filled out. The lead, Amsterdam, is entirely believable and one can feel the rage and drive inside him to avenge his father’s death and bring honor to his family’s name. His foes are similarly well crafted. Bull the butcher, boss tweed, and the other members of the Tammany political party are a joy to read. The dialogue the characters have been given flows freely from the tongues of the time and just feel right. Not once was I jarred from the reading experience, an occurrence all too common in the scripts I read, by heavy handed "on the nose" dialogue.

Overall my impression of this script is that the main story is a good one, the setting is amazingly rich and interesting and most of the characters are well written. The script does have some problems. For one the majority of the subplots are pointless and we end up not caring about their resolution. The script also has a tendency to be unevenly paced in places. This is the type of script that has potential to be a great movie if it lands in the right hands. Potential is a double-edged sword however and the final result remains to be scene. With the director of such great films as {italicsCape Fear and Goodfellas at the helm, my hopes are high for this so-so script.
