CRITIQUE & REVIEW: Daniel Day-Lewis Retires Best Oscar Award for Best Actor with "There Will Be Blood" Performance

Oscar contender “There Will Be Blood” is a very good movie with an outstanding lead actor performance by Daniel Day-Lewis that probably should be placed in the top 10 of all time. The movie does rank that high. It is plodding, in a good way, and despite the title, is not a start-to-finish gorefest. Though there is blood. You learn a lot about the era and the early oil industry. Definitely see this movie on DVD if you missed it in the theaters.

Look: 9

Story: 8

Acting: 10

Goal: 9

Intangibles: 7

Overall: 8
