5 out of 10 Enthralling film
Desmond from Dublin, 01 Oct 2009
Film is so long I intended to watch it in halves, but it's just too good! Daniel Day-Lewis is fantastic as the oil-man, family man, crazy man, a man of many different aspects but each of them a product of his obsession with success and oil itself. Very relevant to the modern day as our oil supplies and finances dwindle, folk would be more inclined to believe in any man offering a solution. His public persona dovetails nicely with his private obsessions and distrust of every man, even his colleag

3.5 out of 10 Portrait of a monster!
maurice from Waterford, 22 Feb 2009
Disturbing tale of a self made oil baron early last century in America. Daniel Day Lewis gives a great performance as a truely flawed, hateful, ambitious, greedy and emotionally stunted prospector. The film follows his relationship with his "son" and his competitor the young preacher. There is lots of symbolism, great cinematography and a fantastically dark score (composed by the guitarist from radiohead) without which the movie would probably only be average. It is a little long and slow an

4.5 out of 10 Portrait of a Man
Helen from Dublin, 27 Nov 2008
This film is exceptional for the magnificent scenery, the tense conflict between Eli & Daniel, the poignant relationship Daniel has with his son. The ending is fitting, though the complete madness involved seems kinda sudden in the narrative - a bit unexpected. I really liked this film, despite the jarring (but appropriate) music. WARNING: Daniel Day Lewis is my favourite actor of all time, so in my eyes he can do no wrong.

0.5 out of 10 Much ado about??
James from Limerick, 19 Jan 2009
Story of an oilman's life journey, from his early days as a one man show, eventual successes, estrangement from his only son, obsession with a fey preacher boy, and descent into madness & murder. Obviously channeling Jack Palance, Day Lewis gives an intense performance, but to little end as neither character nor story engages the viewer. How divorced from public opinion are the Oscar Committee?

4 out of 10 Powerhouse
Ciaran from Dublin, 08 Jul 2008
Epic portrayal of the rise of an oil baron from the dirt in which Day-Lewis gives a powerhouse of a performance that is second to none. The movie itself is slow and deliberate and that may put some off but for those wiling to invest the time, Mr. Plainview is some man to follow and his journey from a hole in the ground to a millionaire is enthralling.

What's it about....
A brutal, bloody, and gripping saga of obsession, corruption, and poisonous greed; Paul Thomas Anderson's Award Winning There Will Be Blood is a masterly, unwavering inspection of a consummately evil man whose trailblazing spirit is equalled only by his murderous ambition. In the dying years of the nineteenth century Daniel Plainview (Daniel Day-Lewis), a struggling silver miner, realises that true wealth lies in oil extraction. Driven by a passionate hatred for others and...
