Deepwater Horizon, the movie about the worst environmental disaster in USA history, was surprisingly gripping.
Admittedly, it had a slow built with too many silly family moments. Okay, I understand they were needed to build on the later drama but they could be less concentrated on a single character.
I’m not a fan of Mark Wahlberg and my suspicions about him were confirmed. Colourless and stiff during the action but kudos on his performance when he’s supposed to be on shock after the rescue. Well played.
Kurt Russell and Gina Rodriguez were amazing and the few scenes Dylan O’Brien was in were well executed.
The finale with the tribute to the real heroes of that dreadful day was really moving and fitting.
I rate this movie with 6.9/10.
