The Hollywood Reporter -
Director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg deliver the goods again with a rugged drama about an incident that created an environmental disaster and a worldwide scandal.
The Guardian -
When all hell breaks loose, Berg stages the action horribly well, capturing the panic and gruesome mayhem without the film ever feeling exploitative. It's spectacularly constructed, yet it doesn't forget about the loss of life, ensuring that, despite thin characterisation, the impact is felt.
An efficient and no-nonsense depiction of the worst disaster in US oil drilling history, buoyed by excellent performances.
For a movie in which you can't follow what's going on for 75% of the time, Deepwater Horizon proves remarkably thrilling.
The most vicious serial killer of the 21st-century manipulates L.A. Detectives Jack Donaldson and Steve Sabbia as they become part of his twisted plan. Seeking revenge against the world's ignorance of his self-proclaimed filmmaking brilliance, his gruesome crimes are broadcast live on the Internet, creating mass hysteria and fear around the country and giving him worldwide recognition. As each new victim is captured, the countdown begins. Can detective's Donaldson and Sabbia stop this psychopath's reign of terror, or will the world watch as he continues to torture his victims and stay just one step ahead of the authorities?
