Deepwater Horizon reveals the brave acts of the men and women who rose to the challenge—and risked everything to lead others to safety.

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

Great Cast, Amazing Movie

I absolutely loved this film, it was captivating and incredibly well produced. It's definitely worth watching. Thumbs up👍🏾👍🏾


Some people may think that this movie is disrespectful, but it does have a purpose. It was indeed an action movie that was sad because many people died on the Deepwater Horizon. This movie tries to get people's attention on the story from the eyes of the survivors. This movie also tries to raise awareness about the horrible disaster that occurred, for example, I honestly had no idea that this happened in real life, and now I'm very aware that this was based on true events with true heroes... What I'm trying to say is that any movie that is interesting tries to tell the viewer something about life (unless it is a crappy movie with a low budget)

One of the best

This is one of the best Mark Whalberg movies I've ever seen. A very emotional and well plotted movie. The best of the late 2016 movie releases.
