Lone Survivor director Peter Berg helmed this docudrama about the Deepwater Horizon disaster, the 2010 oil-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that resulted in the largest offshore oil spill in U.S. history. The film depicts the challenges that Mike Williams (Mark Wahlberg) and the rest of the rig's crew faced as they fought for survival. Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell, and John Malkovich co-star.~Daniel Gelb
Never knew that such a horrible event could happen. There were some real heroes that saved some people that day. A very enlightening movie. A must see for all of us to understand what can happen when we drill for oil in an offshore environment.
