Deepwater Horizon Description

Mark Wahlberg leads an all-star cast in this unforgettably powerful film inspired by a thrilling story of real-life heroes. For the one hundred and twenty-six people aboard the Deepwater Horizon offshore oil rig, April 20, 2010, began like any normal day. Before day's end, the world would bear witness to one of the greatest man-made disasters in U.S. history. Deepwater Horizon reveals the brave acts of the men and women who rose to the challenge—and risked everything to lead others to safety.
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.
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.

    I might have liked this movie more if I could have understood the dialogue. Between the slang they used and the poor quality sound, I was very disappointed. It was a complicated subject matter for me and not being able to understand the 1/10 of the words made it very difficult to enjoy this movie.

    The movie does little to honor those lost on Deepwater Horizon and blows out the ego of the real life attention seeker Wahlbeg plays. The cast is good, the visual effects are done well, but the story fails to overcome the cascading technical details that lead to diaster. Wahlberg's character is seemingly in control and knows exactly what to do thus turning a non-fictional diaster into a shallow mans, self important, hightlight fictional reel.

    This movie was done so well and is so historically accurate. It's amazing that they paid tribute with the movie as a whole to the 11 that passed. It's well thought out story line kept me intrigued on the whole ride through. Must watch.
