I get that Peter Berg was trying to wrap the story nicely from the beginning overlay talk which was clearly in a courtroom or hearing, and then show what happened on the platform and how a billion moving parts and bad decisions or decisions you think are good because everyone is in agreement end up making things go wrong and then finish with the obligatory pictures and write ups about the survivors. But I think they should have focused on the actual worst oil disaster in US history and show more about the environment etc. Good effects though. I really felt like people were hit by 1 ton doors and cut by glass and broken limbs and extreme heat.
An excellent movie about a tragedy that should have never happened. The acting was very believable and the technical parts were well explained so that the veiwer was not left in the dark about what was going on. Well worth the time to watch.
Good docudrama that moved along well. Perhaps, some of the special
effects were overdone and more suitable for a superhero action movie . Nevertheless, well worth seeing and a real reminder of how important the bottom line is for too many large companies , even at
the risk of human lives and the environment.
This is a great movie! Very exciting and entertaining. I would see it at the box office if possible for all the special fx.
Awesome movie! Boring? Those who say boring must have a real boring life - this was real life!!! Drill's don't spew oil (seriously?)!
I enjoyed the movie. But, really wish they had dropped the hand held camera, the director and camera man into the ocean! I Should have taken some Gravol. The hand held is intended to offer the movie goer a sense of intimacy with the action. However, it is a lazy & cheap way to make a movie!!!! It adds nothing to the quality of the entertainment. It ruined an otherwise engaging and entertaining docudrama!!
Awesome movie so intense! On the edge night biting, very interesting that it was based on a true story. Kept our interest the whole movie. Really good.
Great line-up, good job on the special effects.
great movie- the first 30 minutes are so-so and the actors are hard to understand because they mumble so much...however, once the action starts, you'll be sitting on the edge of your seat the entire time!
Running Time: 107 min.
