Cameron asked for a review of There Will Be Blood with this comment last night. So here it is.

Daniel Day Lewis
is one of the top actors working right now. His performance in this movie about the early days of the oil business in the US is fantastic. Paul Dano also delivers an over the top effort as the preacher who torments him.

The acting is the star of this movie. The historical context is interesting. I was fascinated by the way the oil business developed in the early days of the 20th century.

But overall, I really did not enjoy the movie. The story didn’t pull me in and I honestly can’t say it was entertaining.

Bottom Line – see it if you like great acting but don’t see it if you want to be entertained.
