Deepwater Horizon full movie review - a human aspect on the horizon as cheap parts on a deep sea oil well causes a leak out of ecological catastrophe of epic trillion proportions
Mark Wahlberg is a versatile actor who can do anything from comedy to his fascination for movies based on real-life events - The Perfect Storm, The Fighter, Lone Survivor - with the true story of the 2010 drilling rig explosion off the Louisiana coast.
Deepwater Horizon is arguably the most harrowing film of the year. This film is tension packed dramatic With a real docudrama feel, Lone Survivor director Peter Berg brilliantly builds up the tension on the 'well from hell' as events unfold. Technically, this is a tour-DE-force but, more importantly, it feels like the crew have been honored in the right way. This film is a must see at 1hr 38mins of real |Action, plenty of Drama, and the edge of your seat on the high sea Thriller I will give this 9/10 for effort because the oil in the sea bed leaked because BP didn't do any safety checks on the sea floor cause it was 67 days the oil exploratory drill was meant look for oil but the deep water horizon was falling lithely apart and costing to much keep a float as the executives on board were cutting corners to much to the ecolocial disaster that was about to happen 210billion gallons of oil leaked . A story set on the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon, which exploded during April 2010 and created the worst oil spill in U.S. history a great director Peter Berg who also done When faced with our darkest hour, hope is not a tactic with a budget $156,000,000 (estimated 9. of 10. Makes a documentary-style, based-on-true events film into a stunning special FX action-thriller with the sort of technical detail that you'd expect Star Trek nerds to demand and enjoy.
Berg is in the same category. He's directed some really good movies (Lone Survivor, Battleship, Hancock,The Kingdom),. Like Wahlberg, if you enjoyed one of Berg's movies, odds are, you'll at least feel you got your money's worth with all of them.
2 people really impress here: Peter Berg for putting this film together and John Malkovich his acting. Is UN believable his rang is quite remarkable show that his character only cared about money not safety Berg clearly expresses a passion for this that brings to life a film based on an investigative news article. They definitely released this at the correct time. Those looking for horror and gore without being stuck. You will feel truly scared and surprised watching this film without a single gimmick. you know that it's easy to get caught up in the details of how much of the story based on actual events really happened and how much was embellished or altered to make a Hollywood movie. Along the way, I have made a decision to do no research into the facts of the real-life story and just focus solely on the movie itself. I mean, the movie makes no claims to be a historically accurate documentary, so I shouldn't hold it to those standards. And this blog isn't about movies being historically accurate when they don't necessarily claim to be. Mark Wahlberg plays Mike Williams who is blue collar worker on the drilling rig turned into an action hero the Deepwater Horizon. But that's the third thing we learn about Williams from the preview. He's a husband and a father first. He says goodbye to his family before being flown by helicopter with his crew to the rig. All his daughter wants is a dinosaur fossil. All his wife (Kate Hudson) wants is for him to return safely. Once aboard the rig, an executive named Vidrine (John Malkovich) and others from British Petroleum are more than anxious to commence with drilling. They skip a concrete test and excuse a failed system test. They are already 43 days behind and over budget and will do whatever it takes to not fall further behind despite Mister Jimmy's (Kurt Russell) stern objections. They should have listened to Mister Jimmy because everyone's worst nightmares explode into reality. Because the standard safety test leads to mud coming into the pipes causing every kind of disaster
Deepwater Horizon marks the reunion of Director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg who collaborated on Lone Survivor three years ago. It was nominated for Oscars for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing and won the Screen Actors Guild Award for best stunt team performance. While Wahlberg has been nominated for his roles in The Fighter and The Departed, he's one of those reliable actors who makes smart choices. If you've liked one thing Wahlberg has done, odds are,you'll like them all. Most of them won't get nominated for awards, but they will all be entertaining.

From the preview, I said that Deepwater Horizon looked action-packed and visually stunning, but that it also looked predictable with pieces of the rig falling apart or blowing up blocking every turn as Williams and the survivors try to find a way to escape. Stars but I'm It was exactly as the preview said it would be and it was absolutely predictable; however, even though you knew what was coming, it was so perfectly executed, it still shocked you. From the beginning, there was no doubt about the fate of the rig as not-so-subtle clues were dropped along the way from his daughter's school presentation, to the tie of the executive, to the helicopter ride to the rig. You knew it was going You knew it was going to happen, but when it did, it choked the breath right out of you and didn't give it back until the very end of the movie. when faced with the darkest hour hope is not a tact.
It is worth the money to watch in theaters.
