Everyone at the Rig SIte have the right to STOP THE JOB (by alaanazrem)
I am an engineer working offshore in North Sea. I have seen the movie this evening in UK. Is really a good movie, congratulations to all involved you done a great job showing a little bit of ''life in offshore rig''. Looks like in this movie is BP fault but in real world at the rig site everyone has the right to STOP THE JOB if something is wrong or something is going on against the procedures. I have work before in BP rigs in North Sea and I stop the job when I wasn't happy with what is going on I had all the support from the Service Company that I am working for and also <more>
BP company understood my concerns. If you are a engineer, roughneck, derrick-man or whatever you are at Rig Site if you think that something is going wrong and against the procedures STOP THE JOB. I do it and I will do again better to lose my job than to see people dying. Thanks for reading my review
Best Cinema Experience Ever...Jaw Dropping Scenes!! Best Disaster Movie! And It's A True Story! A Must-Watch At The Cinema, You Won't Have Seen Anthing Like It...Guaranteed!! (by benj-20839)
Best And Most Involving Movie Experience I Can Remember Having At The Cinema; And The Best Disaster Movie Ever, Heart Wrenching, Gut Wrenching Frightening Frightening Frightening!! And it makes it so much more involving because it's a true story!Like it says in most other reviews for this film it's a MUST-WATCH for the spectacular visuals alone!Make this the one film you watch this year at the cinema if you don't go much because it will be the Greatest visual cinema experience you'll ever have had!! I watch LOADS at the cinema and it is for me! I'd definitely recommend <more>
seeing it in an IMAX screen if you have the choice.If I could give it 15/10 I would, the amount I felt while watching this..WOW! And it was so visually breathtaking and frightening I've never experienced anything like it. And like I said before I've seen practically all the big budget blockbusters that Hollywood has to offer at the cinema, since the millennium and a load before.
I didn't breed through the whole movie. Is one of those movies that I arrived in the cinema by mistake just because there was nothing else that I haven't seen. Beautiful mistake. I enjoy this movie so much that I cannot remember last time that I have been so touched buy a movie. It is not just powerful and full of action, but also makes you think twice about the decisions you make. I strongly believe that we all should see a movie like this every now and then. Well done Peter Berg and to all cast. If there are more people like me, that you move, I think you brought back what actually <more>
a movie means. And God bless you Mike Williams, we are so grateful that there are still people like you!!
Must be seen in the theatres! IMAX if possible (by audiodave_82)
I usually don't write reviews but saw mostly negative reviews on here so far and that ain't right.It is not a perfect movie and it's not artsy, or profound. However it is very entertaining, has wide appeal, will make you laugh, have you on the edge of your seat and might even make you cry. It's a slow build at the beginning but the tension soon rises and you will then be hooked. The effects appear to be realistic and mostly practical made with a production value that appears to be one of the most expensive films ever made which alone is impressive given it is not a sequel or <more>
superhero movie .Mark Wahlberg works as an everyman lead, but it is Kurt Russel who steals the show. Maybe the performance of his career, and the strongest aspect of the film in my opinion. Malkovich is also amazing as the villain, stealing every scene he is in. The two of them along with the incredible story done with top notch sets, effects and sound is exactly why you have to pay the money to see this on the biggest screen possible.If you need a film to be a character study or you want senseless action from start to finish then you might be one of the people who is disappointed. But if you are looking for a gripping story with great tension and action that can be enjoyed by a wide range then go see this film.
Director Peter Berg "Lone Survivor," " Friday Night Lights" once again partners with Mark Wahlberg to light up the screen, sky and ocean for the retelling of the 2010 offshore drilling explosion deemed "the worst oil spill in US history". Berg makes an camera appearance as the crew shift takes place upon the ridge. Mr. Jimmy the always terrific Kurt Russell and Mike Williams Wahlberg - again at his heroic best feels somethings wrong at the shift change, especially with several BP big wigs aboard, particularly Vidrine John Malkovich - successfully pulling <more>
of an accent . Berg is terrific at filling time and space with rapid dialogue, thus making the audience wait for the action. Gina Rodriguez "Jane the Virgin" is Andrea, top crew person who created the floating ridge, while back home Mike's wife Felicia Kate Hudson - we can never get enough of Ms. Hudson awaits. Special Effects, Sound, Visual stimulation, Cinematography Enrique Chediak - "127 Hours" and more are all on fire here sometime literally , pushing the viewing experience to their limits. If there is a fault here, it lies in the initial camera work that is to close to the actual drilling making it impossible to visually understand what one is looking at. Writing credits are in abundance here, bringing the story and lives of the on screen characters to realistic life. "Deepwater Horizon" is an action packed film for all. While these type of films don't always get recognized at Awards times, this one maybe break that curse.
A dramatized documentary about the disaster on Deepwater Horizon with spectacular visual effects driven action (by nejclozarslo)
Deepwater Horizon isn't an action movie by definition. I would much rather call it a dramatized documentary of the incident.The first half of the film despite it's lack of action is still very meaningful as it takes it's time to properly set up the characters so that when bad stuff starts to happen you can really care about them. It also does a great job building tension by showing all the necessary precautions not being taken in order to save money as oppose to avert the disaster. All of it is done through some of the most mesmerizing editing I have seen all year.Once the <more>
inevitable disaster finally happens we are in for some of the most intense action sequences this year has to offer. I admire Peter Berg's direction of it. One wide shot of a huge explosion, a quick look at the outside world responding to the situation and after that you are looked in with our heros. What I appreciate the most about Berg's direction is the fact that at no point he ever lets the explosions outshine our heros. They are the ones that are always in the foreground, they are the ones we should care about.Which brings me to my one small issue I have with the film, though the more I think the more I realize that it's probably just me who went into this film expecting a bit too much of an action movie then what this film actually is. So basically soon after the disaster strikes the action doesn't go on for very long, or at least I felt like it didn't. But let me emphasize again the action that I did get was nothing less of spectacular and I will gladly take quality over quantity. Once again, I don't think I have seen or will see a film this year with better visual effects, sound design and editing maybe Rogue One .Deepwater Horizon tells a brilliantly executed story of a struggle workers went through on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig that April in 2010. A perfect follow-up to the first collaboration of "The Bergs" Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg , Lone Survivor, which if you liked but found it somewhat disturbing at times, then Deepwater Horizon fixes all that and you nor anyone else should waste no time before seeing this film. It's one of the best of the year, period.
What is it about disasters that we enjoy watching? I could come up with a number of reasons, but the bottom line is that Hollywood has shifted to dramatizing former events as a means for more movies. Hi, Robbie K here bringing you another review of the latest films to grace the screen. Tonight we hit Deepwater Horizon starring Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, and a handful of other actors. Let's get started. LIKES: Great acting Over the top graphics Emotionally stimulatingYou might be thinking that I have gone crazy, after all Wahlberg hasn't had the greatest roles. Deepwater <more>
Horizon breaks the mediocre streak and drops him into a position that may net him an Oscar nomination. Wahlberg's portrayal of Mike Williams is certainly a heroic one filled with wisdom, strength, and a calm edge that sets the stage for a natural leader. But there is also a realistic side brought out near the second half the screen that balances out the heroic theatrics of Hollywood. Kurt Russell no surprise plays his usual rugged role, making sure to add the hard edge testosterone rush all older actors need to bring. Hudson and Malkovich get A's as well, each bringing the needed involvement to round out the cast. All the extras and lesser billed roles complete the picture as a close oil crew, but much of their time is spent standing around or ducking from fire. Speaking of fire, the visual effects are top notch in terms of computer graphic imaging. Deepwater Horizon's reconstruction of an oil rig succumbing to its doom is very realistic. For you technical folks, the directors have crafted scenes to mimic the daily operations involved with pumping oil, from watching gritty mud flow through the pipe to the cracking foundation floor. That sound boring? Well those looking for a little more suspense will be impressed when the whole operation blows to pieces literally. You might be amazed seeing the rig, and its crew, get covered in oil before erupting into a fiery inferno you've seen in the trailers. My friend described the visuals being so good, he felt immersed into the disaster, wanting to duck or dive as explosions rattled the screen. Of course the real magic to the visual effects are the emotions it brings with it. The various sequences and montages of the exploding metal certainly paints a terrifying picture as you wonder how much time is left until something falls. Now add our characters trying to traverse the obstacle course from heck, feeling horrifying chills run through your body as you watch human bodies hurled through the air and disturbing injuries protruding in gory details. However, it is not all dismay and dread, no Deepwater Horizon has plenty of sequences and montages of heroism that will make you a little proud to be a human no matter how overly theatrical it could be. DISLIKES: Overdramatic at times Already know the ending Editing needs workI'm probably sounding overcritical or nonsensical, but here it goes anyway. Deepwater Horizon is at times a bit on the overdramatic side. As I said, much of the movie will light a fire in your soul that will have your patriotism in full force. Unfortunately, some of these moments are a bit too fake and in your face to get my full backing, primarily making an effort to pan on the American flag flapping in the flames. Even the more heroic moments sometimes get a bit too corny, the overdramatic focus on the camera amid a symphony soundtrack blaring pride. Again, they get the message across and deliver the emotion, it just sometimes gets a little too Hollywood for me. The special effects and the noble protagonist will certainly spread suspense and awe, but it doesn't help that you know the ending. If you paid attention to the news, you know all about what happens to the rig, and if you choose to ignore history take a look at the trailer. The opening sequence doesn't help things either by telling you the fate of a certain character that further adds predictability to the mix. What does leave in terms of suspense and surprise? Pretty much it is the fate of the crew that held any mystery to me, and that was scarce at times. Perhaps another minor dislike, but still one nonetheless. In regards to the editing, this one is a tough call to make. On the one hand I appreciate the details they provide about the incident, from the development of the disaster to how they faced the inferno the rig became. And yet, I felt some of it was elaborated too much for my liking. The build up was a little too long and drawn out, making it slightly boring as we waited for the dirt to hit the pipe. As the oil begins to bloom into a fountain the pace picks up, but then hits a very slow, somewhat pointless, standstill at the aftermath of the situation. Yes, it provides realism and rounding out of the characters, but again is a little too extended after all the excitement. They probably could have spared about fifteen minutes, but hey that's just me. THE VERDICT:Despite this being the third historical event to get a movie this month, Deepwater Horizon will provide the emotional thrills you want. A fantastic CGI design that's brimming with emotion and suspense. However, the predictability and overdramatic moments fall in line with Hollywood's magic and takes away from the message of the movie. I have to recommend this one for the theater though, primarily for the technological achievements it brings. Overall my scores are:Action/Drama/Thriller: 8.0 Movie Overall: 7.0
In April of 2010, an offshore drilling rig named Deepwater Horizon exploded resulting in the worst oil spill in U. S. History. If you've read my previous reviews about Eddie the Eagle, Steve Jobs, The Big Short and Spotlight, you know that it's easy to get caught up in the details of how much of the story based on actual events really happened and how much was embellished or altered to make a Hollywood movie. Along the way, I have made a decision to do no research into the facts of the real-life story and just focus solely on the movie itself. I mean, the movie makes no claims to be a <more>
historically accurate documentary, so I shouldn't hold it to those standards. And this blog isn't about movies being historically accurate when they don't necessarily claim to be. It's based on two factors: how accurately the movie is portrayed by its preview, and the likelihood of the movie making it to my home collection. With that in mind, here's my review:Mark Wahlberg plays Mike Williams who works on the drilling rig the Deepwater Horizon. But that's the third thing we learn about Williams from the preview. He's a husband and a father first. He says goodbye to his family before being flown by helicopter with his crew to the rig. All his daughter wants is a dinosaur fossil. All his wife Kate Hudson wants is for him to return safely. Once aboard the rig, an executive named Vidrine John Malkovich and others from British Petroleum are more than anxious to commence with drilling. They skip a concrete test and excuse a failed system test. They are already 43 days behind and over budget and will do whatever it takes to not fall further behind despite Mister Jimmy's Kurt Russell stern objections. They should have listened to Mister Jimmy because everyone's worst nightmares explode into reality. Deepwater Horizon marks the reunion of Director Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg who collaborated on Lone Survivor three years ago. It was nominated for Oscars for Sound Mixing and Sound Editing and won the Screen Actors Guild Award for best stunt team performance. While Wahlberg has been nominated for his roles in The Fighter and The Departed, he's one of those reliable actors who makes smart choices. If you've liked one thing Wahlberg has done, odds are,you'll like them all. Most of them won't get nominated for awards, but they will all be entertaining. Berg is in the same category. He's directed some really good movies Lone Survivor, Battleship, Hancock,The Kingdom , but none that would really break into a critic's top 50 list. Like Wahlberg, if you enjoyed one of Berg's movies, odds are, you'll at least feel you got your money's worth with all of them. From the preview, I said that Deepwater Horizon looked action-packed and visually stunning, but that it also looked predictable with pieces of the rig falling apart or blowing up blocking every turn as Williams and the survivors try to find a way to escape. I anticipated 3 Stars but I'm bumping that up to 4.0 Stars. It was exactly as the preview said it would be and it was absolutely predictable; however, even though you knew what was coming, it was so perfectly executed, it still shocked you. From the beginning, there was no doubt about the fate of the rig as not-so-subtle clues were dropped along the way from his daughter's school presentation, to the tie of the executive, to the helicopter ride to the rig. You knew it was going to happen, but when it did, it choked the breath right out of you and didn't give it back until the very end of the movie. It is worth the money to watch in theatres. Though I'm not sure I'll be owning Deepwater Horizon, I will be watching it again.
Deepwater Horizon is the first of two Peter Berg directed films this year, and if Patriots Day is anywhere near as good as this film we could be looking at quite a few nominations for Berg come February.Deepwater Horizon tells the story of the crew members of the rig of the same name in April 2010, when the largest oil spill in U.S. history began. Berg is always a guy to count on with this type of harrowing true story. He has the skills of an action film director while also having the delicate hand for an emotionally powerful touch. And much like the recently released 'Sully', this <more>
film is a strong tale about the power of the human spirit.Putting Battleship aside, Berg has always had a knack for directing high intensity sequences of trauma and thrills. Even taking that note into a smaller scale with Friday Night Lights, Berg is great at managing to balance intensity and emotion. Deepwater Horizon is perhaps his biggest scale film thus far, but it's also incredibly personal as well. It stars Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, and Kate Hudson. All of them get the opportunity to act in small intimate moments as well as physically demanding scenes. Usually, it's those small moments that bring the emotions out of me, and that was Kate Hudson here. I feel like she hasn't gotten a lot to do since her breakout with Almost Famous, but this may be the best she's been since. She plays Wahlberg's wife, and it's simply her reactions to the devastation on the oil rig while she's at home, that really got to me. Powerful stuff.With all that said, sometimes the high octane thrills feel to be heightened just for heightening certain situations. Berg never loses sight of the end goal here, but some 'action'-ish scenes are almost a little too much, considering how contained this story feels. It doesn't take you out of the film, but you will feel like it could have been handled differently.Like Berg's previous film, Lone Survivor, it does a nice job of honoring those who died at the rig and the families severely affected by the tragedy. It's a powerful film with gripping performances from Hudson and the rest of the cast that will likely lead it right into the awards season come winter time.+Berg's delicate touch+Hudson+Devastating-Some heightened moments8.6/10
