Deepwater Horizon, starring Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich & Kurt Russell is fairly great adaption of the disaster that took place a few years back. One wouldn't really take an Oil Rig disaster as the most obvious pick for a movie, but director Peter Berg has done an admirable job in representing the gravity of the worker's situation on screen, and made it quite thrilling to watch as well.

Mike, Andrea and Jimmy have their duty on Deepwater Horizon, an oil rig. Their work starts off great but they soon come to realise that the company that hired them is cutting corners when it comes to ensuring safety so they can make a quick buck. Despite their pleas, the company refuses to listen and the trio have to fall in line as they do need their jobs. Then as expected, disaster strikes, and it's up to these blue collar workers to ensure their survival. Deepwater Horizon is about how their valor shines through this sticky situation and how this crew lived to see another day.

For a movie like Deepwater Horizon to be any good, it's actors' performances needed to be pitch perfect. Thankfully, this is the case. Mark Wahlberg delivers an excellent performance, as does the rest of the cast. Nobody goes overboard with drama, and the audience can truly empathize with the unfortunate workers. DH's cinematography is really well handled too, with the flames often making you want to turn away from the screen, capturing the intensity of the explosion perfectly. Deepwater Horizon is worth a watch, for just about any audience.
