Mike Williams (Mark Walhberg) is headed to the oil rig Deepwater Horizon to start his three-week shift. It starts out as a normal day except when he arrives the crew that was supposed to test the cement is leaving. They soon find out the test was never preformed and Mr. Jimmy (Kurt Russell), the foreman, is not happy. He runs pressure tests to try to see if drilling can finally happen. He isn’t satisfied with the results but the BP executives are sick of the delays. What happens next is the worst oil disaster in the United States.
This movie was really intense. I loved every minute of it. I also was extremely sad for the eleven men that were killed. What a horrible accident that didn’t need to happen. Also starring, Kate Hudson, Gina Rodriguez, John Malkovich, and Dylan O’Brien. Rated PG-13
