Deepwater Horizon (2016)
Genre: Action, Drama, Thriller
Another dramatized action disaster movie based on real events. This film is based off the Deepwater Horizon accident in 2010 and this movie is fairly good 🙂 . I liked how this film began with the real voice of a survivor overlapping the opening credits. I even liked the end credits were we see the real pictures of the survivors and victims’ (even if some of the actors chosen to play them don’t really match 😛 ). Matt Damon was amazing in his part of Mike Williams who created a believable character you wanted to root for and to survive 😀 ! The majority of the cast in this film (Kurt Russell, Gina Rodriguez, Dylan O’Brien and many more) all performed so brilliantly that did not take away from the narrative or overtook the main disaster sections. The first half of the film, as much as it is needed, is a bit long and at times slightly boring. However, after that slow first half the second is very entertaining 😀 ! The disaster section was gripping, thrilling and had me on the edge of my seat throughout (and I was shocked by some of the surprise deaths/explosions). I also loved Matt Damon’s performance at the end as that was so real and was perfect acting skills 😀 . Plus the hints to the disaster in the first half (such as the Coke can and pen scene) was cool 😛 . A pretty good film that I would definitely watch again and would recommend 🙂 . Enjoy 😀
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
