There Will Be Blood(2007)

The 40% I have given this film is based on DDL'S performance which was brilliant. However the film its self left me with a rather sour taste in my mouth. The twists were generally obvious, and the whole film dragged on for far to long. But my main beef with this picture, the thing that took it from perhaps a solid rating was the god awful ending. It was all so sudden, it was as if they had made a pretty good film and then realised they had not devised an ending. Panicking they put together any old nonsense and hoped it would do. The ending is seemingly pointless,rushed,forgettable and boring. It should of been the highlight, the moment of the film that takes the great acting, the stance on American society and religion to a high. Instead it came falling down like so many dodgy oil drilling machine parts.
