CAST & CREW
Making films on ecological disasters is indeed a tight-rope walk for the filmmakers. Now, let’s see what Deep Water Horizon, an environmental disaster film, has in store for us.
Mark Wahlberg, Gina Rodriguez and Kurt Russell report to duty as usual. They work in Deepwater oil rig. It dawns on Kurt Russell that the company that commenced the drilling expedition doesn’t mind to ignore safety measures so that immediate results are gained. What happens next? Watch Deep Water Horizon to know.
Mark Wahlberg is associated again with Peter Berg (director) after Lone Survivor has given a good performance and is in good form. John Malkovich has enjoyed doing his role as the villain. Kurt Russell also impresses us with his work.
Peter Berg brings the catastrophe before our eyes in a somewhat gripping manner. But the director seems to have concentrated more on the technical details that the flick doesn’t provide enough insight as to the real reason of the explosion. The screenplay of Matthew Sand and Matthew Michael Carnahan have an instructive approach to them. The sound effects are so absorbing that even a minute of silence fills us with fear. A disaster movie indulges in other individuals’ misfortunes. And this movie, which narrates the story of the oil drilling rig of 2010 which turns out into an environmental catastrophe has its share of terse moments. The movie’s first part tells us that some disaster is going to happen.
The movie is visually appealing.
What’s not there?
The movie is filled with details of the disaster and it is visually rich.
