What is ‘Deepwater Horizon’?


Fan Contributor Managing Editor Nick Nunziata reviews director Peter Berg’s latest film, Deepwater Horizon. This is the true story about the men and women who faced death on the 2010 oil platform disaster. It’s a harrowing tale that chooses to focus on the moments of danger that occurred in that enclosed space rather than the political fallout. As a result, this is a concussive two hours in the theater. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, and Fandom favorite Dylan O’Brien.
