| Epic Jim
While quite a few filmmakers try to either be as realistic as possible or go the complete opposite way (fantasy or action wise), there was a time when a story was defined just by the main role. As is the case in this movie. The central character is so epic (in his achievements but also in his failures), that it would feel ridiculous to compare him with a human being.

There will be Blood tried to bring that sort of movie back (and depending on your view it achieved or not just that). But while Daniel Day Lewis played a different character, the intensity in the portrayal was the same! The general story line is very familiar. The central performances give this the edge it needs. But it might not be enough to convince you. Whatever you may think, it's intense and packs a punch or two along the way. Cann you bear with it (and it's central character) throughout or will you give up on it?
