It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but unlike the monumental machine at its centre, works efficiently within its tight confines.

The movie seems like a glorified re-enactment of the actual incidence, and it quickly gets to the point.

As an informative piece on the catastrophe at the Deepwater Horizon, the movie just doesn’t dig deep enough. But as a visually rich disaster movie, it passes the test.

Though everything seems routine there’s enough human connect to keep the audience involved. Stunt work and CGI are top notch making this experience amongst the more fulfilling disaster movie experiences in the recent past.

At the very end when you thank God, Producer & Destiny for  liberty from the 2-hour claustrophobic tedium , a display card in the end-titles informs that we’ve just seen a film based on the worst oil rigging disaster in  the history of such disasters.

There are very few films that have managed to flawlessly depict the grotesque nature of incidents without making them seem commercial in any way, and Deepwater Horizon does just that. If you like watching disaster movies, this is one you absolutely need to watch.

"You can't stick your hand in a hole and hope for the best. Hope isn't a tactic," says Wahlberg's character early in the movie.It's true. Cutting corners doesn't work, something most multinationals would do well to remember. In all its thrilling moments, Deepwater Horizon never loses sight of that fact.
