In April 2010 a disaster happened on an American oil drilling rig – an explosion, losing a lot of people and came to be the worst oil spill in U.S history. This is the story of that event.
Mike Williams working at an oil rig as an engineer, he was on a Skype call with his wife when the incident that was going to change so many lives happened. During the film we get to see how two men from the company who runs the rig where pressuring the workers to test and test and push the drill to the point it exploded. The workers were told to ignore the results of the test and only do one test and start drilling. So what happens? It explodes. Now it’s up the crew of the rig to send a S.O.S, lucky them in a way, when a ship who picked up some oil still where close and saw the explosion and started picking up survivors from the ocean as they where jumping in. We see the crew being brave, fighting own injuries to find survivors so they can be taken to the boats and to safety.
As I was watching Deepwater Horizon I felt their pain and need to survive through the actors who did a excellent job. It’s not easy to do based on real event movies, some just turn out to be God awful but this one was very good and the desperation and need to live where captured so amazingly from the actors. In the end of the film we get to see clips of the people who was lost in the accident and people who survived!
