Deepwater Horizon

Peter Berg does not do subtle. The director of Hancock, Battleship and Lone Survivor is all about spectacle over substance, even when dealing with real life events such as the explosion that destroyed the oil rig from which this film gets its name that resulted in the death of 11 workers and the release of millions of litres of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, creating the biggest environmental disaster in United States history. 641 more words

Deepwater Horizon

Deepwater Horizon (2016)
★★★ / ★★★★

Peter Berg’s telling of the largest offshore oil spill in United States history translates into a compelling watch because sentimentality is kept at a minimum, it offers just the right amount of disaster movie elements without sacrificing realism and intelligence, and the director makes a smart choice in spending some time to allow the viewers to understand, and appreciate, what the disparate jobs in the oil rig entail. 524 more words

Deepwater Horizon was a Human Disaster

As a staunch supporter of environmental causes, I was quite disappointed to hear and eventually see that director Peter Berg’s latest disasterpiece was no muckraker. Berg spends little time digging deep into the wider corporate malfeasance behind North America’s worst oil spill in history, choosing instead to celebrate the heroism of those on board the ill-fated rig as it came apart from within. 232 more words

A Decent Watch for the Sake of the Subject and Acting

Based on one of the worst environmental disasters, Deepwater Horizon does well enough – largely due to its casting and well-directed climax. From what I have read, the movie made some technical mistakes, but that may be noticeable to people who have read about the disaster in detail. 357 more words
