More Info:
  • Calvin Wilson

    This is very much an ensemble film, with Wahlberg, Hudson and Russell turning in performances that get the job done without begging for attention.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Bob Mondello

    An action flick entertaining enough to justify the more than $100 million it took to make it come alive on-screen. And come alive, Deepwater Horizon does, in 107 minutes of terse, tight storytelling, a good 95 of which are white-knuckle tense.

    NPR Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Their chief adversary is the greedy, heedless BP executive played by John Malkovich in his finest slinky-slimy mode. At its best, the movie is like “The Towering Inferno” but without all the sudsy subplots that doused that film’s fires.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    What works almost disturbingly well is the way Berg calibrates his delivery of the disaster while still holding on to the human scale of it.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Michael Roffman

    Berg offers a visceral experience that overwhelms with startling humanity.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Stephanie Zacharek

    Malkovich sure isn’t subtle, either, but that’s the point: his job is to get your blood boiling, and boy, he’s good at it.

    Time Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    My only serious complaint about Deepwater Horizon is that it’s not quite the muckraker I’d hoped for.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Berg’s favourite heroism at the brink, but the rescue efforts here aren’t pushed to the outsize or sentimental extremes they might have been.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Stephen Whitty

    It's an impressive achievement, and even Berg's taste for the obvious — like shots of Old Glory, still waving through the worst of it — can't overwhelm the humanity behind the drama. Real people, real danger — and real self-sacrifice.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    With Deepwater Horizon, Berg strikes an unlikely but impressively delicate balance. On one hand, his film honors the men and women killed and injured in the explosion off Louisiana's coast. At the same time, it works just as well as a fast-moving and absorbing disaster drama.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    [Berg] keeps things simple, tight and taut, and does right by the folks who were there for the real thing. He’s made them the heroes of a genuinely exciting action movie.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Matt Donato

    Deepwater Horizon is effective, efficient and furiously paced.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    An efficient and no-nonsense depiction of the worst disaster in US oil drilling history, buoyed by excellent performances.

    Empire Full Review
  • Todd McCarthy

    Director Peter Berg and star Mark Wahlberg deliver the goods again with a rugged drama about an incident that created an environmental disaster and a worldwide scandal.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Benjamin Lee

    When all hell breaks loose, Berg stages the action horribly well, capturing the panic and gruesome mayhem without the film ever feeling exploitative. It’s spectacularly constructed, yet it doesn’t forget about the loss of life, ensuring that, despite thin characterisation, the impact is felt.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Tirdad Derakhshani

    I've rarely encountered such pure poetry of action as in the opening minutes of Deepwater Horizon, director Peter Berg's exciting and emotionally wrenching thriller.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Lou Lumenick

    What we’ve got is a highly entertaining nautical version of “The Towering Inferno’’ (still my favorite guilty pleasure of all time).

    New York Post Full Review
  • Barry Hertz

    The overall product is so tightly assembled, and so emotionally satisfying, that any complaints end up being inconsequential.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Berg does a tremendous job of throwing us into the action with the help of dizzying handheld camerawork from Enrique Chediak.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    Although engaging, Deepwater Horizon ultimately offers a mixed bag of an experience. The setup is considerably better than the payoff, front-loading the experience.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    When disaster strikes, about an hour into the movie, we’re put in the uncomfortable position of admiring the fiery spectacle that Berg has created with sophisticated visual effects, cinematography and editing, while being aware that unspeakable real-life suffering has been packaged for mass entertainment. Berg does a good job of maintaining a thoughtful balance between those somewhat uneasy stances.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Berg sticks to the job at hand, imagining what it is was like to be there, and to be the victim of sloppy, deadly safety practices in the name of a good day on Wall Street.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Lawrence Toppman

    The film’s well-paced and well-acted, and I couldn’t take my eyes off it most of the way. I faltered as projectile followed projectile and explosion topped explosion, yet even then the excitement held up.

    Charlotte Observer Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    While Deepwater Horizon effectively shows its mettle as a proper action film, it goes the extra mile and drills a little deeper to unearth a lot of heart as well.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Deepwater Horizon is a brawny hybrid of technical expertise and real-life tragedy, with neither quality getting shortchanged.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s a well-made, sometimes horrifyingly realistic re-creation of events — but it often feels like a formulaic disaster film.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Berg reminds us that even in the worst disaster, people can be selfless, heroic, and in the case of Aaron Dale Burkeen, professional even if those who gamble with their fates are not.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Gregory Ellwood

    Outside of the Berg’s incredible depiction of the Deepwater’s destruction and the escape of a majority of its crew, the picture also benefits from two fantastic performances by Wahlberg and Rodriguez.

    The Playlist Full Review
  • Anthony Lane

    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.

    The New Yorker Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Swift, no-nonsense and pummelingly intense, this is the big-budget Hollywood disaster flick on a CrossFit regimen and a Paleo diet — a hellish cataclysm that never risks overstaying its welcome.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The film itself is as much a feat of engineering as a work of art, an efficient machine for delivering intricate data and blunt emotions.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    Berg keeps the story personal, which is certainly one way to tell it, though it would have been nice to see a little more about the devastating effects of the massive oil spill triggered by the rig's destruction.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Matt Singer

    As a director, Berg is known for his brutal action scenes, and while Deepwater Horizon’s second half is full of intense sequences, the film’s first half is just as exciting thanks to the wonderfully uncomfortable dynamics between Wahlberg, Russell, and Malkovich.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    For a movie in which you can’t follow what’s going on for 75% of the time, Deepwater Horizon proves remarkably thrilling.

    Variety Full Review
  • Bryan Bishop

    There’s no question that Deepwater Horizon delivers thrills, but you may feel awfully empty afterward.

    The Verge Full Review
  • Soren Andersen

    The picture’s pyrotechnics are first rate, and the acting by the principals is more than serviceable.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    A taut, engrossing action movie about real-life heroes, so why is it a disappointment? Because director Peter Berg is telling the wrong story.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Rex Reed

    This is a movie about action, not acting, and although, under the circumstances, the cast does yeoman work in roles that can only be called generic, in the long haul they can’t save the script and direction from being sometimes boring and always predictable.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Rebecca Onion

    I left the film moved to tears, and still feeling like something huge was missing.

    Slate Full Review
  • Neil Smith

    As crude as the oil it revolves around, Deepwater provides combustible entertainment without leaving the shallows.

    Total Film Full Review
  • Tom Huddleston

    Accusations of tastelessness are bound to arrive, with some justification. If your priority is to respect the dead, why hire the director of Battleship?

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Fionnuala Halligan

    If nothing else, Deepwater Horizon makes a case for going back to basics with action films. It’s classically framed, executed, and feels like the real deal, and while it clearly boasts some fine effects work, it manages to lose the cartoonish aspect of so many recent tentpoles.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    As entertainment, it works in the most rote way: the star power of Wahlberg, Russell, and Kate Hudson, who plays Mike’s worried wife; Malkovich’s predictable sliminess; the minor pleasure of seeing the good guys get out; the slight kick of watching something big crumble and burn while knowing that it’s only a special effect, real-world basis be damned.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Jordan Ruimy

    Deepwater Horizon reminds us just how talented an action director Berg is and how often substance becomes a second thought for the director.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Sam Fragoso

    It’s a thrilling film with impressive set pieces, solid acting and a pulse-pounding climax. Movie-wise, mission mostly accomplished. But to experience Deepwater Horizon and ignore the external circumstances surrounding its creation is a difficult task.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    It’s ultimately a genre film with all that implies, meaning omissions, simplifications, conventional heroics, dramatic banalities and, given the narrative’s limited scope, little sense of the event’s complex causes or its environmental cost.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    It has scale, spectacle and a cast of good actors who seem to believe in what they’re doing. But the movie springs to life only in spurts.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    As is often the case with Berg’s films, it’s technically accomplished, but it’s lacking the depth of a project that comes from a creative spark. Everything here feels routine—more like an inevitability than a work of art or even a piece of entertainment. Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    It turns a major tragedy into a minor disaster movie.

    Indiewire Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    That Berg and writers Matthew Carnahan and Matthew Sand stick strictly to the day of that explosion and subsequent fire that sank the Deepwater Horizon certainly presents a narrative opportunity, but the lack of any resonance to larger issues is troubling (the end-credit coda is woefully thin).

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    The film should have been a cautionary tale, but in Peter Berg's hands, it's a hollow account of the resilience of the human spirit.
