Peter Berg United States, 2016

msmichel's rating of the film Deepwater Horizon

Big budget take on a 2010 oil rig explosion off the coast of Louisiana provides some exhilarating moments at times but perhaps needed a little more controversy in looking at the reasons why it happened. Film provides some black hat villains but seems shy to truly expose the oil company's greed and neglect. Performances are mostly one note its the effects that carry this one.
