      K. Austin Collins The Ringer [Deepwater] knows what it is: not a memorial or a political indictment, but merely a movie. Aug 10, 2017 Full Review Jason Bailey Flavorwire Clumsy exposition aside, the dialogue feels authentic, tossing around the shorthand and lingo of the job, and the script is precise on the details without getting overwhelmed by them. Jan 17, 2017 Full Review David Sims The Atlantic Viewers will leave with a fine sense of how it felt to be on that blazing rig, but they'll still have plenty of questions about how and why things went so wrong. Oct 30, 2016 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy Berg’s idea of social commentary is to shove the American flag into the frame at every opportunity. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 4, 2023 Full Review Keith Garlington Keith & the Movies I’m an admitted disaster movie junkie, and many of them depend on some level of sensationalism. “Deepwater Horizon” keeps its focus on the 126 crew members aboard the rig on that horrible day. Rated: 4/5 Aug 20, 2022 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review It boasts a fine cast and technical display; however, the experience is limited to its 99-minute runtime and considers none of the extensive issues that stemmed from the disaster. Rated: 2/4 Apr 11, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      Zara T Very good movie, gripping and tense. The cast were great. Especially Walberg and Russell. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/19/24 Full Review Stephen S Its a movie about a disaster; true or not its a good movie, showing the emotions as well as why people do this type of work, for their family to have a better life, or hopefully. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 05/14/24 Full Review Lukas K A grim look at the consequences of unforgiving actions. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/24 Full Review I. V Impressive action sequences and effects, but way too much cliche dialogue. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/24 Full Review Nicolas D "Deepwater Horizon" is an exceptional movie that brilliantly captures the harrowing events surrounding the oil rig disaster. With gripping storytelling, intense visuals, and outstanding performances, the film immerses viewers into the chaos and heroism of that fateful day. The emotional impact is undeniable, as seen in the touching scene where the crane operator selflessly sacrifices his life to protect his fellow crew members. This poignant moment left me in tears, a testament to the film's ability to evoke genuine emotions. "Deepwater Horizon" is a cinematic masterpiece that expertly balances action, drama, and humanity, making it an unforgettable and deeply moving experience. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 10/19/23 Full Review stevie-rose absolutely intense and heart-wrenching. I sob during the ending every time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 09/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews
