The Synopsis for Deepwater Horizon (2016) 720p

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.

In April of 2010, an offshore drilling rig named Deepwater Horizonexploded resulting in the worst oil spill in U. S. History. If you'veread my previous reviews about Eddie the Eagle, Steve Jobs, The BigShort and Spotlight, you know that it's easy to get caught up in thedetails of how much of the story based on actual events really happenedand how much was embellished or altered to make a Hollywood movie.Along the way, I have made a decision to do no research into the factsof the real-life story and just focus solely on the movie itself. Imean, the movie makes no claims to be a historically accuratedocumentary, so I shouldn't hold it to those standards. And this blogisn't about movies being historically accurate when they don'tnecessarily claim to be. It's based on two factors: how accurately themovie is portrayed by its preview, and the likelihood of the moviemaking it to my home collection. With that in mind, here's my review:

Mark Wahlberg plays Mike Williams who works on the drilling rig theDeepwater Horizon. But that's the third thing we learn about Williamsfrom the preview. He's a husband and a father first. He says goodbye tohis family before being flown by helicopter with his crew to the rig.All his daughter wants is a dinosaur fossil. All his wife (Kate Hudson)wants is for him to return safely. Once aboard the rig, an executivenamed Vidrine (John Malkovich) and others from British Petroleum aremore than anxious to commence with drilling. They skip a concrete testand excuse a failed system test. They are already 43 days behind andover budget and will do whatever it takes to not fall further behinddespite Mister Jimmy's (Kurt Russell) stern objections. They shouldhave listened to Mister Jimmy because everyone's worst nightmaresexplode into reality.

Deepwater Horizon marks the reunion of Director Peter Berg and MarkWahlberg who collaborated on Lone Survivor three years ago. It wasnominated for Oscars for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing and won theScreen Actors Guild Award for best stunt team performance. WhileWahlberg has been nominated for his roles in The Fighter and TheDeparted, he's one of those reliable actors who makes smart choices. Ifyou've liked one thing Wahlberg has done, odds are,you'll like themall. Most of them won't get nominated for awards, but they will all beentertaining. Berg is in the same category. He's directed some reallygood movies (Lone Survivor, Battleship, Hancock,The Kingdom), but nonethat would really break into a critic's top 50 list. Like Wahlberg, ifyou enjoyed one of Berg's movies, odds are, you'll at least feel yougot your money's worth with all of them.

From the preview, I said that Deepwater Horizon looked action-packedand visually stunning, but that it also looked predictable with piecesof the rig falling apart or blowing up blocking every turn as Williamsand the survivors try to find a way to escape. I anticipated 3 Starsbut I'm bumping that up to 4.0 Stars. It was exactly as the previewsaid it would be and it was absolutely predictable; however, eventhough you knew what was coming, it was so perfectly executed, it stillshocked you. From the beginning, there was no doubt about the fate ofthe rig as not-so-subtle clues were dropped along the way from hisdaughter's school presentation, to the tie of the executive, to thehelicopter ride to the rig. You knew it was going to happen, but whenit did, it choked the breath right out of you and didn't give it backuntil the very end of the movie. It is worth the money to watch intheatres. Though I'm not sure I'll be owning Deepwater Horizon, I willbe watching it again.

Deepwater Horizon is a movie that succeeds on two levels: as anaction-packed blockbuster and as an honest depiction of a tragicdisaster. It's the story of the BP oil rig that exploded andcontaminated the Gulf of Mexico. The way Berg directs the sequence ofevents is well paced and purposefully developmental for a good chunk ofthe movie. It takes about 45 minutes before the crap hits the fan,during which we're allowed time to get to know the characters - theirquirks, their personalities - so we can empathize with their situation.The stakes feel real, as they should (and were), which is a testamentto the directing and the acting. Mark Wahlberg and Kurt Russelldominate in their roles, Russell given the opportunity to remind us whyhe's one of the biggest stars ever. The supporting cast is excellent,including John Malkovich, Gina Rodriguez, and Dylan O'Brien, who havechemistry and rapport between other characters (Malkovich and Russellsharing a couple intense moments where not a word is said).

The disaster itself is portrayed brilliantly. The tone remains franticand the stunning special effects work puts it over the edge. Oncethings go south, it's a nonstop adrenaline rush till the end. The onlyreason it's not rated higher is because it's merely a depiction ofevents, nothing groundbreaking or revolutionary in regards tostorytelling. But it didn't have to be. This was a tragic event and thegritty realism shown here is as refreshing as it is intense. If you'rein the mood for a deeper-than-average thrill-ride, look no further thanDeepwater Horizon.
