The Synopsis for Deepwater Horizon (2016) 1080p

In April 2010, there is no oil exploration operation in the Gulf of Mexico to compare with the Deepwater Horizon oil rig with its size or sheer depth of its drilling. However, the project for the BP oil company is beset with technical difficulties to the point where the general operational supervisor, Jimmy Harrell, and his Chief Electrical Engineer, Mike Williams, are concerned potentially dangerous trouble is brewing. Unfortunately, visiting BP executives, frustrated by the project's long delays, order curtailed site inspections and slanted system tests to make up for lost time even as Harrell, Williams and his team helplessly protest for the sake of proper safety. On April 20, the workers' fears are realized in the worst possible way when the rig's various structural and system flaws spark a catastrophic cascade of failures that would create a massive blowout and explosion that threatens them all, even as it also begins the worst environmental disaster in US history.

"Full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing" could be a summary of thismodern-age disaster movie. In 2010 the "Deepwater Horizon" drilling rigoff the coast of Louisiana failed in spectacular fashion, bursting intoflames and spewing millions of barrels of crude oil into the Gulf ofMexico in what was the worst oil-spill in American history. MarkWahlberg plays the well-respected electrical 'Mr fixit' Mike Williamson the rig, reporting to the Operations Manager Jimmy Harrell (KurtRussell).

The exploratory project is way-behind and BP are not happy. Big-wigsfrom the company add support to Donald Vidrine, the BP site leader, inapplying mounting pressure on Harrell to press on regardless withoutall the necessary and time-consuming tests by Schlumberger beingcompleted. Rogue numbers in further tests are waved away as 'glitches'.A familiar story of corporate greed and pressure overriding theexpert's better judgment.

When disaster strikes it strikes quickly, with some spectacular andexciting special effects that leave the audience especially hot underthe collar. Female support is provided by the comely Andrea Fleytas(Gina Rodriguez), given the almost impossible job of keeping thefloating bomb on station as chaos reigns about her. As an audience weare back on familiar ground here from classic Irwin Allen disastermovies such as "The Towering Inferno" and "The Poseidon Adventure". Whowill make it, and who won't?

A more telling question here is "Do we care?" and unfortunately for thefilm, the answer is "Not really". This feels a callous thing to saywhen this was a real and recent event and eleven people and – astouchingly illustrated at the end of the film in tribute – many of themfamily men with young kids, never went home again. But film-wise, weonly really get bought into the fate of Williams, whose back-story,with cute wife (Kate Hudson) and cute daughter (Stella Allen) we get tomeet and sympathize with.

We get a minimalist view of Fleytas's backstory, but only enough toprovide a recurring "Mustang" reference. And that's it. All the othercharacters are just two-dimensional "rig crew": cannon-fodder for thespecial effects team. The screenplay by Matthew Sand and MatthewCarnahan really doesn't deliver enough heft to get us bought in.

While the special effects are good, the sound design isn't, with muchof the dialogue being incomprehensible.

All the acting is fine, with the ever-watchable John Malkovich nicelyportraying the corporate head you love to hate. Wahlberg as welldelivers enough range to make you forget in this "action mode" that hewas also in "Ted". And Rodriguez as a junior lead holds her own againstthe big guns in what is a creditable performance in a big film role forher.

While "Lone Survivor"/"Battleship" director Peter Berg neatly providesan insight into life on and around rigs, and (via subtitles)descriptions of the drilling process which I found interesting, thiscomes down to the sum of a tense build up, an hour of freneticdisaster, and then a whimper of an ending. Where were some of thedramatic scenes of conflict in the congressional hearing that thefilm's opening implies might come? Where are the scenes of ecologicaldisaster and local financial ruin to add emotional angles to the story?None of this is really exploited and the whole concoction comes acrossa bit "meh" as a result. Not a bad film by any means. But not one Iwill remember in a month or two's time.

I usually don't write reviews but saw mostly negative reviews on hereso far and that ain't right.

It is not a perfect movie and it's not artsy, or profound. However itis very entertaining, has wide appeal, will make you laugh, have you onthe edge of your seat and might even make you cry. It's a slow build atthe beginning but the tension soon rises and you will then be hooked.The effects appear to be realistic and mostly practical made with aproduction value that appears to be one of the most expensive filmsever made (which alone is impressive given it is not a sequel orsuperhero movie).

Mark Wahlberg works as an everyman lead, but it is Kurt Russel whosteals the show. Maybe the performance of his career, and the strongestaspect of the film in my opinion. Malkovich is also amazing as thevillain, stealing every scene he is in. The two of them along with theincredible story done with top notch sets, effects and sound is exactlywhy you have to pay the money to see this on the biggest screenpossible.

If you need a film to be a character study or you want senseless actionfrom start to finish then you might be one of the people who isdisappointed. But if you are looking for a gripping story with greattension and action that can be enjoyed by a wide range then go see thisfilm.

Peter Berg makes movies, but he also knows a lot about deep-water oilexploration. He'd have to, considering how complicated this dangerousactivity is, and how well he handled those complexities and portrayedthat danger in his film. Berg directed "Deepwater Horizon" (PG-13,1:47), the dramatization of the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil rig explosionwhich killed 11 people and resulted in the largest oil spill in thehistory of the petroleum industry and the biggest environmentaldisaster in U.S. history. A combination of faulty equipment and humanerror caused the disaster. Methane gas escaping up the rig's pipesenveloped it, ignited and eventually consumed the rig, which burneduntil sinking into the ocean 36 hours after the initial explosion. Thetitular rig's owner, Transocean, and its client, BP, traded accusationsof wrongdoing for years, while various cases worked their way throughthe courts – and a lengthy environmental clean-up of the gulf coastproceeded. No one went to jail, but, according to Wikipedia, "To dateBP's cost for the clean-up, environmental and economic damages andpenalties has reached $54bn." But that's all scientific and industrialdetail. This film is mainly a story about people.

Berg (with his screenwriters, Matthew Michael Carnahan and MichaelSand) personalizes the story by focusing on a few key people involvedin the events depicted. Master electrician Mike Williams (played byMark Wahlberg, who Berg also directed in 2013's "Lone Survivor") is adevoted family man with a loving wife (Kate Hudson) and a sweet andprecocious daughter (Stella Allen), who's very proud of her dad and hisjob. Radio operator Andrea Fleytas (Gina Rodriguez) is a young, singlewoman who has a steady boyfriend and loves her vintage Ford Mustang,even if she does have trouble keeping it running. Both Mike and Andreawork for "Mr. Jimmy" (Kurt Russell, appearing on film for the firsttime with Hudson, who is his adopted daughter) is the caring, but toughand diligent Transocean foreman on Deepwater Horizon, who often findshimself at odds with BP's corporate representatives on the oil rig.

As Mr. Jimmy and his crew arrive at the rig for their three-week-longturn on board, it's apparent that the departing shift (including Berg,in a cameo role, in which he briefly talks with Russell's character)hasn't done their due diligence in taking care of operation and safetyconcerns on the rig. While entertaining two BP executives who arevisiting Deepwater Horizon (and who present him with a safety awardduring a brief ceremony), Mr. Jimmy locks horns with BP liaison DonaldVidrine (John Malkovich). Mr. Jimmy insists on a test of the pressureentering the well from beneath the ocean floor. When the test givesconflicting results and the results of an alternate follow-up testcomplicates the situation further, the stage is set for disaster. Therest of the film depicts that disaster with astonishing detail andrealism as everyone on that rig fights for survival and for the goal ofgetting back safely to their families.

"Deepwater Horizon" is a fascinating, entertaining and inspiring takeon a real-life disaster. We get good character development and adetailed behind-the-scenes look at the considerations, disagreementsand actions that led up to the catastrophic explosion, but there are acouple problems with all that. Berg does a good job with a combinationof dialog, on-screen verbiage and impressive visuals to help usunderstand the dynamics at play, but it almost seems like too much, andthe conversations, with a lot of technical jargon, characters talkingover each other and seeming to mumble their lines, and some withvarious southern accents and some without, combine to make it difficultto tune one's ear to the dialog and understand everything that's beingsaid. However, the main point of this movie is the survival story. Berghad a realistic version of the rig built (including many workingcomponents) for shooting. His attention to detail – in the set and inthe film's visual effects is nothing short of remarkable. What's more,we care about the characters and the danger they're in feels real. Forexcellent acting, a well-developed story and incredible visuals, youshould put this film on your horizon. "B+"
