true story seeing the real survivours .
For the one that did not see the movie how can you comment on movie you have not seen - how odd and weird
DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
Lots of action.
I feel glad for the families of the people who lost their lives in this tragic event in history, their story has been told...how very sad and unnecessary that lives were lost. Well done movie that everyone can learn something from watching. Kudos to the actors!
Sad movie; very well done, the acting was great as one would expect from Kurt Russell, Kate Hudson and Mark Wahlberg.
One of the best movies I've ever seen. We all knew the environmental impact of the oil spill but never the personal stories of the people affected by it and how the BP oil company got let off so easily. It had my heart racing as my eyes tried to stay dry. It's a story about personal loss, strength in the face of tragedy and real life heros.
Great movie of the year. 1 star is for BP management.
Good movie but must admit Mark W. Just has to stand there and he gets 5 stars.
Enough already - we know you don't like Mark and you don't care about real tragedy - find something else to do - your boring eveyone
thoroughly enjoyed it - edge of the seat throughout. (A very good insight into what contributed to the spill - the stuff we didn't get to hear about on the news.)
Fantastic film . Seeing this horrible incident evolve is chilling. It is a suspenseful thriller. A must see film.
Excellent story - true - and makes you think alot about the whole oil industry.
very good movie...entertaining from start to finish.
Very good I remember watching this on the news and seeing what happened it was as shocking as this movie
Brought my 25yo granddaughter who noted that when this disaster happened, she does not remember the news media talking about lives lost. Not to downplay the environmental costs, which were tragic, but the movie also makes you appreciate the human costs as well. Notched it down one star because of the continuous loud explosions. If your ears are sensitive bring ear plugs.
For those that said ending was already known so why make the movie - then they probably watch movies made about video games, batman, etc - everyone knows the ending - good guys always win and the plots are the same.
Much better than expected. Suspenseful too
Just an overall exceptionally great movie. Really felt like crying in the end.
Good movie! People are just J of mark because he modelled underwear and was part of the funky bunch
5 stars - excellent movie
People who call this movie superficial nonsense - get real - this is a true life disaster - it is not a movie one goes to be entertained - it is to let the world know what happened and feel compassion for the 11 people that died either by being burned to death, drowned, or crushed. It was the worst oil spill in US history. Thousands of people were affected from the oil spill as well as the wild life that died from being covered in oil. This movie is excellent .
Perfect movie for stupid people who like stupid boring movies with cliches.
Well done disaster movie if you like that genre ... only we already knew what was going to happen so more like an expensive re-inactment. A lot of burning metal and people getting hurt.
Deep Water Horizon was extremely well written and the acting was great. Living on the Gulf coast and having family and friends who have worked on rigs, this movie gave me a brief insite into this life. It also showed BP's concern of the $ over the lives of the employees.
Disregard any negative review of this movie. It's very good and the special effects are too notch.
This is a well scripted, directed and acted film. Berg tried very hard to focus on the human drama rather than the political or ecological repercussions of the event. This is fine film making. The young person who keeps posting multiple negative reviews of this film is obviously angry at Mark Walhberg because his girlfriend likes Walhberg. If you ignore this idiot's comments, you might rate this film 4-5 stars.
Ignore the same Mark Wahlberg hater that enters 1 star rating continuously. Excellent movie, well worth the money.
Well worth seeing, really good movie. Tragic how money overrules safety.
Really enjoyed this movie - well worth seeing how the tragedy took place. Great characters played by great actors.
Don't waste your money on the movie ~~~ I repeat Don't waste your money on the movie ~~~
Saw this movie and thought it was great. It goes to show how the almighty dollar is so important, even more than human life. My thanks to Mark Wahlberg for this movie and bringing it to light. All the actors were great. I'd see it again. Rate this movie a 4 out of 5
People it's Mark Wahlberg!! Nuff said 5 stars *****
Say pass to this movie and you will be considered smart. One of the worst movie of the year.
AMAZING incredible effects. Well worth seeing on the big screen!!
Based on a true event. Very well done. Certainly turns up your compassion for the people that work on those rigs.
Don't waste your money on this movie~~~~
Great movie - The thought of being on that rig is terrifying. The negative reviews show a lack of compassion for real tragedy. It's not about the actor its about human suffering and survival. Not sure why the Walberg bashers went to this movie as there is an obvious dislike for the actor.
Deepwater Horizon was a great movie! Peter Berg is such an awesome director.
I give the troll a 1 for his 600 reviews he entered..he definitely has a hate on. I give the movie a well deserved 5..good development of characters and a very realistic heart pounding account of a major tragedy. The story line is well done so that it keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout the movie right up to the spectacular ending. Even though you know what is going to happen.you get to see why it happened, how it changed lives, created heroes under extreme adversity and you got a feeling of what they endured. Spectacular visuals and sound brought it all to life. Highly recommended
very well made movie. Shame on BP - let's hope this doesn't happen again. Great actors.
It's hard to imagine a worse movie. Boring, full of cliches, lacks any kind of thoughtful direction.
This movie doesn't deserve 1-2 stars... is there a 0 star rating option?
Doesn't take much to please some people...Watched 15 minutes and am happy I did not spend any pesos for this...
I liked this movie unlike the troll that keeps giving it 1 star rating. Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich all gave a great performance. It is a story that needed to be told. Go see it.
Save your time and money. Not worth watching. Weak plot, no storyline, bad characters, very boring. Mark was not good.
Hard to hear conversations of actions as the sound of drills in background ...after the first 3/4 hour, the action, and frightening, realistic scenes of a true life oil station exploding and burning. A story that deserves to be told. Not for everyone, certainly adult entertainment because it has moments of being terrifying.
