A cinematic wonder. Character portrait extraordinaire.

The jarring last years in the field of a miner turned oil-man, are being thrown upon the viewer by the amazing performances of Day-Lewis and Paul Dano. One cannot say this movie is perfect and the pacing feels a little bit of at times but the pros outweigh the cons heavily.

Outstanding DDL performance as usual, Dano great too

Daniel Craig is brilliant! However, the movie didn't really do much for me.

There Will Be Blood dances to the beat of a different drum, and it's the unusual way Paul Thomas Anderson tells this story that makes it worth watching. It really is a unique film. Daniel Day-Lewis is absolutely compelling as the charming, yet repulsive protagonist, and you really don't know who to root for as the movie progresses. I don't know why I waited so long to see it, but I'm glad I finally did.

Wow, it's awful. It's different but wow it's awful. Long, slow, uninteresting, terribly boring. Just terrible.

Paul Thomas Anderson's visionary directing and Daniel Day Lewis' masterful lead performance amount to "There Will Be Blood" being timeless epic. It's intense, tragic, and although it's not a horror movie, it's at times scarier than one, as it portrays the worst of human tendencies but still is relatable.

Boring and pointless. Also, stupid.

TL:DR
Daniel Day being drunk and abusive to Paul Dano.

Daniel Day-Lewis being Daniel Day Lewis. Bags of Character! But that's not to forget Paul Dano's role and performance either and especially the directing from Paul Thomas Anderson. This is film making!

super-long but one of the finest performances by Daniel-Day Lewis
no talking during the 1st 15 min but Daniel is an upcoming oil tycoon who you cant take your eyes off because of how malicious and power-hungry he is
the oil empire is built thanks to him but his greed starts spreading
Paul Dano also plays a priest begging him to choose Christ as his lord and savior, it's all about cementing his power base through faith while Daniel does through oil
the last scene is the most memorable as well
not for everyone but great for pure art cinema-lovers

Daniel Day-Lewis' character is so uniquely troubled and interesting that the film stays consistently attractive throughout despite never moving far from its location; There Will Be Blood is a fantastic character study into someone that sees the worst in everyone, helped hugely by the performance of Day-Lewis.

Ridiculously silly ending for an otherwise good, if bloated film.

Its the greatest film of this generation, and quite possibly the best film of all time. Daniel day Lewis has no peers, he has transcended beyond a level anyone else in Hollywood could hope to ever accomplish save perhaps sir Anthony Hopkins. If you didn't like this, you really have no idea what film is. The writing is brilliant, the acting is amazing, the soundtrack ominous, the cinematography is breathtaking. It's an absolute piece of art from top to bottom. There will be blood is the American cultural version of the Mona Lisa. If you couldn't tell, I liked the film

Since early, P.T. Anderson had established himself as one of the most original directors working today, yet sadly still one of the most underrated ones, specially due to his competent and recurring cast in the perfect form of Daniel Day-Lewis marvelous performance! This actor is just perfect, insane, dark, greedy and just playing one of the most weirdly realistic, malicious and brutal men in the History of Capitalism. "There Will Be Blood" is a materpiece and the art form of modern Cinema, in its greatest formula of storytelling, performances and symbolism.

The plot is more viscous than oil. The slow burn of an oil prospector.

I waited a really long time (almost ten years, until people stopped hyping it, and i had almost forgotten about it) to watch this. And I must say, it was a refreshing breath of fresh air. In the same vein as most of the work done by the Coen brothers, such as No Country For Old Men, it has a realism to it that blurs the lines between who is bad or good, a plot that is almost entirely outside of generic Hollywood lines, and phenominal acting that gave the characters a shocking breath of reality. For those of you who enjoy big plots with a driving story and fantastical action, this is not for you. This film, in my eyes, is great for those who value films that make you think, that show the grit and the grime, and speak about how those who are good are also sometimes evil and vice versa.

This film is widely considered as a masterpiece and it gives an unforgettable performance by Daniel Day Lewis! It's also very will written and directed by Paul Thomas Anderson which shows great film making. The story of an oil worker who starts to get corrupted with moral bankruptcy is a very emotional and moving story to watch!

One of those movies that you will find in lists with Citizen Kane or Giant, obligatory for any cinema lover.
