Deepwater Horizon

Action, Drama, Thriller

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.

The critical consensus

An efficient and no-nonsense depiction of the worst disaster in US oil drilling history, buoyed by excellent performances.

****(*)Chris Hewitt, Empire Online, 26/09/2016

In spite of the death of 11 crew members and the unspeakable environment devastation, the film somehow manages to be upbeat – an achievement, albeit a very perverse one.

***(*)(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 29/09/2016

The result is entertaining as hell without diminishing the real people involved in the disaster. Brilliant stuff.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 29/09/2016

Mark Wahlberg stars in Peter Berg’s excellent nail-biting drama about the 2010 disaster that cost 11 lives.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 29/09/2016

A solid cast in an old-fashioned disaster movie.
