I didn't see a review of this film, so I'll throw it out there.. If you want a movie that is non stop action, this is not for you. If, however, you are a fan of Daniel Day Lewis, as I am, this is one of his best performances (up there with Bill the Butcher from GONY). It took me a few to catch on to the movie, but it is a very cool and well written film. I really don't know how else to describe it other than DDL is one of the best actors ever. Also, it was based on an Upton Sinclair novel called "Oil!", which I have never read. Many of you may have read parts of "The Jungle" in school; same author.
