Nils van der Linden A big, bold, barking mad success.
Neil Smith Anderson's film is also timeless — a sweeping epic in the classic Hollywood tradition that invites comparison with Citizen Kane and Giant. As lofty as its themes are, though, There Will Be Blood finally works best as a thrilling vehicle for its star's fiery majesty and remarkable ability to disappear inside every role he takes on.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert There Will Be Blood is the kind of film that is easily called great.
James Berardinelli There Will Be Blood has the capacity to engage, if not enthrall. Unfortunately, the film's final third is poorly focused and, while there is a clear conclusion, it feels strangely hollow.
Peter Travers The first time I saw this beautiful beast of a movie from director-writer Paul Thomas Anderson, I felt gut-punched.
Striking in a number of memorable ways and featuring a title that thematically works on various levels, There Will Be Blood exists in the sort of movie vein not often seen nowadays.
Tomatometer A sparse and sprawling epic that boasts incredible lead performances.
