Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The film depicts the worst oil spill in American history and director Peter Berg recreates the cataclysm of that day with unbearable tension and healing compassion. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Sep 30, 2016

Fresh: You can't help marveling at the tightrope the filmmakers walk: honoring their courage and sacrifice while making an action flick entertaining enough to justify the more than $100 million it took to make it come alive on-screen. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Sep 30, 2016

Fresh: In short, Peter Berg has done it again. You come out shaken with excitement, but with a touch of shame, too, at being so easily thrilled. – Anthony Lane, New Yorker, Oct 3, 2016

Rotten: The most positive general attribute about Deepwater Horizon is the authenticity of its action. – Matthew Lowe, FILMINK (Australia), Oct 4, 2016

Customer Reviews

A disaster

Where do I start... it's painfully boring and loaded with American flag waving. It's a movie about one of the biggest ecological disasters in history but makes no mention of the environmental impact. They spent millions of dollars making a movie to honour a dozen or so injured families, when they could have just given them the money. Pass.

Wanted to like it

Lots of oil terminology, but none of it explained, no interesting video of the process- just slow and jargon

Last few minutes has a couple explosions. Based on a true story, where a whooping 10 people died out of 126.

(Watch hacksaw ridge instead)
