      Tragic Disaster!

      DEEPWATER HORIZON is about the tragic disaster that took place on the oil rig, 50 miles off the coast of Louisiana, that resulted in deaths and the largest oil spill ever. This film takes a very docu-verite approach to telling the story. While the movie does overindulge a bit in cliches, it also works pretty well as a procedural look at how an oil rig is run, day-to-day. That aspect was fascinating to me. So if you don't mind some corny dialogue and some cheezy exposition, the film will give you a pretty interesting and also harrowing look at what its like to be an oil rig worker. In the 2nd half, the disaster strikes and the movie becomes like Titanic, showing moment-by-moment what happened and how the crew was either rescued or perished. The FX are pretty exciting and bombastic, but the events are tragic. Director Peter Berg imbues the movie with a very patriotic messages about American workers and American idustry, portraying them as heroes. If you are a communist, this will probably irk you. Otherwise, this is a pretty straight-forward disaster movie, with a high production level. The Blu-Ray comes with TONS of extras, including an entire 5-part documentary about the incident. It is quite exhaustive, you will learn everything you can about the movie, the ship, the crew, and the disaster. The disc definitely packs in the extras for a decent price. Also comes with a nice glossy slipcover.

      Couldn't be happier with the purchase

      I worked on offshore rigs before so I can appreciate all the tiny details this movie has gone to in reenacting this disaster from start to full blowout. Over the years I have accumulated all kinds of piece of information about this incident from all different sources official and grapevine, from what I can tell, this movie is quite accurate in establishing the event sequence and pointing to the all human errors and process/system malfunctions that all failed to respond on time as designed or per protocol in times of emergency. There are details that are, however, dramatized to some extend to show the laymen audience what happened, like the gas bubbles emerging from seabed near the subsea wellhead when the mother nature was about to release her immense power in terms of black gold gushing through the well and subsea riser to the platform. I had to say this movie was not meant to be an documentary film that attempts to investigate what happened and what caused the incidents, instead, it focuses on the people, the trans-ocean rig workers and BP company man whose fate are entwined together in this fateful night, their lives, their family and their emotions, each of them a living soul, dedicated to each other in times of trouble, and how they helped each other fighting their way through fire and reaching the lifeboat, and I would say it did a very job in accomplishing so.

      Deepwater Horizon is awesome and heart breaking movie and must see! I remember hearing about this event back in April 2010. To be honest up to I heard this movie would come out I forgot about this event. Seeing this movie gave me a better respect for those men and women that put their lives in possible danger to work on oil rigs. After seeing this movie I believe TransOcean deep sea drilling company was not responsible for what happened. BP cut corners, ignored great advice from TransOcean directors about the well being bad and more tests where needed before caping the well. Seeing the names and pictures of all the men who dead on Deepwater Horizon at the end of the movie was heart breaking and sad. I'm glad the director did this and he told a great accurate story in one of the best movies of 2016 period. The effects and sounds are awesome. I saw this film in IMAX 2D and was shaking a little after the film was over. The blu-ray is good turn up your sound and watch film on a great HD T.V. Overall this film will make you Google oil rig disasters and watch Youtube videos of what all happened on Deepwater Horizon on other oil rig disasters.

      A Tragic Tale That Makes For A Thrilling Film

      Director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg once again deliver a tragic and thrilling tale of survival and heroism based on true events. Deepwater Horizon is one of two films released in 2016 completed by the duo and their third collaboration to date. Deepwater Horizon is a very well executed film and tension is palpable throughout the entire 1 hour 45 minute runtime. While some people may argue that this film is in poor taste or an exploitation of a disaster, I would counter by saying that Berg's film captures the panic and gruesome mayhem of the events without ever feeling like it is a capitalization for the sake of entertainment. Looking at the technical aspects of the 4K disc, the film boasts terrific audio and visual quality despite being another 2K upscale. If you are a fan of Berg's previous works and can pick it up for a reasonable price, Deepwater Horizon comes highly recommended from this reviewer.

      As an engineer who works for a major oil company (Not BP) and who spent years working a 14 days on/ 14 days off schedule on deepwater production platforms (what gets put in place to produce and transport the oil/gas after the rig has drilled the wells) I think this was a fairly accurate, and entertaining movie. It did embellish, as others have said, things like "dinosaur oil" and finding fossils in well cuttings. It's the decay of micro organisms, not a bunch of T-Rexs that turn into oil and give the term "fossil fuel". Also it failed to mention a lot of other contributing factors, but gives the common moviegoer a good sense of what life offshore is like and perhaps why oil is so expensive with all the equipment and tests that are necessary to safely produce oil and gas, some of which BP shortcut.

      GREAT MOVIE

      I think this is a must see film. This movie had me on my toes. I don't understand the bad reviews. I think its not only an important film to see to be reminded of what happened, but its important as a tribute to those on board the deepwater horizon. A horrific event it was, but the movie does an excellent job. Mark W did a excellent job, The acting is spot on, the suspense level is sky high, I really don't understand how this could be viewed as a flop. I saw the movie with a group and everybody was shaking with adrenaline at the end. Everybody I was with thought it was good. It did not paint BP as bad as they really are, it did show some blame, but clearly not all the ways in which they were cutting corners. I really think this is an important movie to see.

      Good, not Great

      Director Peter Berg seemingly loves telling true to life stories about extraordinary events. Deep water Horizon is a story needing to be exhumed and retold through the perspective of the lead character because it allows us to learn what truly happened that day when the largest oil spill to have happened in the Gulf Coast. All of this could have been avoided had safety been at the forefront, but today he we are learning from the mistakes of the past just as we always do. In 4K the movie looks great, not outstanding by any stretch of the imagination. I would recommend if it was slightly cheaper because $30 for this movie is a bit steep.

      Well done True Events Film

      I remember when this event occurred and the resulting fallout. I feel that the movie was a very well done while based on true events. I found the portrayal of the BP execs to be fairly accurate, in that they considered themselves superior both intellectually and experience-wise to the workers that spend most of their lives doing the job. It is a shame that this incident could have been easily avoided by listening to the men that really knew what they were doing and possibly erring on the side of safety instead of the "bottom line" or "company line." There is enough action for those wanting it and insight into what really happened.
