Deepwater Horizon

Moderate threat, occasional gory moments, infrequent strong language.

About this Film

Deepwater Horizon

ODEON says...
Mike is a devoted family man who’s leaving to work on the ‘Deepwater Horizon’ oil rig. But when the rig explodes, he finds himself in a fight for his life. 

A massive buildup in pressure in one of the drill pipes causes a catastrophic explosion, devastating the rig. As a desperate attempt to evacuate everyone begins, the worst consequences of the accident are still to come. 

Witness one of the worst man-made natural disasters in history on board ‘Deepwater Horizon’, a heroic true story of survival and sacrifice.

Exciting real

Reviewer: Saint2Date: 2016-10-14

Surprised - expected rubbish as worked on rigs... BUT - its fairly accurate to the rig life except the Texas 'twang' and banter.(but UK is same but 'scotbritish')... can be tough to follow. Drama real, filming and effects FAB. Exciting!

A very good film. You know what is going to happen, but the filming is incredible. No one would work on an oil rig again after watching this! It's that good!


Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2016-10-09

I found my mouth agape at one point at the horror of this spectacle in which 11 people lost their lives. Very realistically acted and you will just hate big corporate bosses by the end of it. Heroism triumphs over unfairness though. Very good movie.


Reviewer: Louise16Date: 2016-10-06

Having worked in the Oil Industry I can confirm that the pressure from the Oil Giants to keep the rigs pumping oil is immense! The move was great and true to life, the only downside was the dialogue which was muffled and difficult to follow.
