Mark Whalberg is Mike Williams, an electronics technician that is trying to save himself and the survivors from the inferno and the ensuing melee.

I must say this was a great depiction of the one of the biggest man-made disasters. You could actually feel the peril that the crew was in. The CGI was so awesome that you could almost feel the heat through the screen. The sound effects to me were the highlight of the whole movie because you constantly keep hearing the creaking sounds that builds up tension and anticipation and keeps you wrapped up in the events unfolding before your eyes.

It’s funny how the characters used a lot of technical drilling terms which many of us did not understand but somehow were still able to follow what was going on. That’s quite an achievement because the movie ran the risk of losing the audience. Also, I noticed the producers didn’t want to harp on the negligence of BP but we still got the picture that the disaster was caused by greed and gross negligence.

Kurt Russel, Mark Whalberg and John Malkovich all gave awe-inspiring performances. It’s funny how I always expect John Malkovich to start acting crazy in every movie I see him, however there was no such joy in this movie because he was darn too serious. Mark was his usual hero self and Kurt Russel was the mother hen looking after her brood on the rig.

I am glad the movie did not dwell too much on the issue of who and what caused the explosion because honestly, we all know what happened. They rather stuck with the action and peril of the aftermath of the explosion.  The film is intelligent but action packed and earns a 6.7/10 rating on my awesome-o-metre because it was an entertaining watch.

Have a great day today!

  1. […] Other than the music, the sound was amazing because similar to Deepwater Horizon you hear so many sounds like ratchets rattling, loose screws and loud explosions and even the […]
