Deep water horizon is a movie about the BP oil rig explosion that happened in 2010 and stars Marky mark, Kurt Hustle and John Malkosnitch
Whilst I normally hate disaster movies this one from the off is brilliantly paced, directed and acted and it deserves all of the critical praise it’s getting
The movie brilliantly introduces hows oil drilling happens by using a kid giving show and tell to demonstrate how oi is extracted, from the re we are thrown straight into the workings of an oil rig and life at sea.
It looks like proper hard graft
People getting facials from mud bukkakes
Proper hard graft
I couldn’t do it
Hardest graft ive ever done is me hair
Normally in films like the moments leading up to the disaster are boring and dull, like in 2012 before the world starts falling apart, its proper boring as fuck with John Cusack
However, in this they brilliantly build tension even when they are just sitting about a control room discussing things, I wish my meetings at work were this fun, but then I work in an all male brothel, so what can you expect
One of the unintentionally funny things in this is john malkovics accent, as it’s based on a true story I don’t know if the man he played spoken like that, but he talks like a toddler, I don’t know If he did that to make it so it looked like he shouldn’t be running an oil rig but he talks like
dat da bottom line
Mark Wahlberg is brilliant throughout this, he really humanises the main character and comes across as likeable and invests you in the stakes of the film,
I think he can be hit and miss often, I find Wahlberg best when he has a character to base his performance on rather than creating one himself, that’s why he excels in roles like lone survivor, this and the departed….however if he’s making it up himself, with poor direction, we get the happening
“are you trying to kill me”
“nooooo…..whaaaaaat…..I would never do that”
The film has a realistic tone to it that helps to enforce the danger for the viewers, whilst things based on true stories can often end up like braveheart, don’t watch that if you want to pass your gcse history exam kids, this one feels like it hasn’t been over fictionalised and the piece works brilliantly as a dramatization.
I can see why BP are PISSED about this movie, like PISSED, more pissed off than Kanye is everytime he listens to I hit it first
I hit it I hit it I hit it I hit it
Basically there are about 4 characters in this movie, they all wear shirts with big BP logos on, and theyre all absolute, complete, dickheads, like “uh what does this button that says do not touch do”
Proper inept, Id be pissed if someone made a movie about my company and it was this, this is like the super size me of BP
The thing is, when you drill, in a bp, you gotta……….drill in the holes…..make it air tight…..even if she doesn’t look like she can take it……cos that’s what a bp is
I stole that joke from south park
By the end of the movie I was totally gripped, I found it a brilliant adventure that sucked you into the world and gave you a feeling of just how terrifying being in this situation would be
Overall I highly recommend watching the movie, there isn’t really anything bad about it, it’s really eye opening and anti corporate and makes you wanna hashtag boycott bp by the end.
On a scale of San Andreas (shit) to Towering Inferno, I give it an Armageddon out of 10
So that’s an 8/10
Real fun ride that will have you gripped throughout
