Movie Review – There Will Be Blood

Yes, there was blood. There was also:

  • Plenty of oil;
  • Some fine acting from Daniel Day-Lewis, intersperced with a few over-indulgent scenes;
  • Some pretty crappy fonts in the opening and closing credits;
  • An annoying soundtrack;
  • No female characters of any substance;
  • A running time that was 45 minutes too long

A disappointed 3 stars from this reviewer.

PS – is it just me, or is DD-L a dead ringer for Magnum PI?

    finally got to watch There Will Be Blood, definitely a high-quality flick, Daniel-Day Lewis’ performance was top-notch. He seems to like the overbearing, violent father-figure role, as he also did this in Gangs of New York.
