There Will Be Blood Movie Review

This movie stunk. Where was the story? Where was the point? Am I supposed to walk away from this thinking that greed is what drives all business people, and there willing to do anything for the next dollar.

Great acting doesn't make a movie, if a great story doesn't follow. A great story has to have an ending. This movie only shows the story to a point, and abrubtly stops. I don't want to leave a theatre without answers. Many times when I go to a movie I think about the ending. I want to know if I am right or wrong. When my thoughts carry me passed the actual conclusion then the movie didn't make budget so to speak.

Some people will say it did have a conclusion. I say it doesn't? The consequence for the main character's actions are never revealed. I didn't like No Country For Old Men for this very same reason. Neither movie should be nominated for Best Picture. They both stunk and were inconclusive. I compare these movies to writing a book and removing all the key chapters only to leave the reader clueless. Fortunatly, it doesn't take a month to watch a movie and your released from this garbage in just a couple of hours. The problem is that most of us don't have a couple hours to waste on what some a-hole considers art.
