Daniel Plainview is the main character in There Will Be Blood. He isn't the most friendly person in the world. He is very rude and violent. He likes to do what is best for him. Daniel likes to put his money before anyone. Stand in between him and his money and you may end up dead. He just so happens to be a static and indirect character, meaning, he doesn't really change who he is throughout the movie and he expresses how he feels through his actions and his speech. There will be blood in my opinion was a very good movie. My favorite scene would have to be when the well caught fire. This scene really made you realize the main point of the whole movie. During this scene they pan the camera to the well multiple times to make it more than obvious what was more important. I personally feel that the movie was a very well done drama. I would for sure go the movie when it is in theaters. I would recommend this movie to anyone that likes drama and or action. This was an over all very well done
