Deepwater Horizon tells the story of a huge oil rig explosion from perspective of the crew that survived it
In my life there have been only a few incidents that have stuck with me. One that I will never forget is the awful oil spill that happened on the gulf of Mexico in 2010. Deepwater Horizon takes place before this terrible tragedy occurs. It instead looks at the events leading to the huge oil rig explosion from the eyes of those lucky enough to survive it. I was able to this movie early and here is what I thought of it.
You can read the plot for Deepwater Horizon here:
Based on the true events that occurred on an oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010, the story chronicles the courage of those who worked on the Deepwater Horizon and the extreme moments of bravery and survival in the face of what would become one of the biggest man-made disasters in world history.
I liked Deepwater Horizon. The film starts off slow, but once the explosion occurs there is non-stop action and thrills from then on. It was nice to see the events that led up to this disaster, and the cast does a great job playing their roles. Jonh Malkovich stands out as one of the BP executives who ends up making this horrible tragedy happen. It was a disaster that took eleven lives and caused injuries to much of the crew.
From the moment that the oil starts to spew all everywhere and the pressure causes extensive damage Deepwater Horizon is an amazing movie. Lots of people get hurt and sadly many lose their lives. The special effects are very good and takes viewers into the bowels of this rig as it is falling apart piece by piece. If you want to learn more about Deepwater Horizon head over to this website.
Deepwater Horizon gets 7/10. It is a crazy thrill ride that keeps going right down to the shocking finale. I really liked seeing another side of this event.
