A dramatization of the April 2010 disaster, when the offshore drilling rig Deepwater Horizon exploded and created the worst oil spill in U.S. history.
Peter Berg has found his motif of real life heroics and raised himself from an average director to someone who is now able to tell emotionally gripping stories. This is more accomplished than his previous film Lone Survivor as he never allows the action to takeover the characters and makes sure they are always the most important thing including yet another tear inducing photo montage at the end. This builds up to the disaster very well and when it happens the film becomes a harrowing watch. Definitely worth seeing and it'll make you hate BP even more than you already do.
