“ Deepwater Horizon ” is an action movie based on the true story of a massive offshore oil drilling rig located in the Gulf of Mexico . Popular actors including Mark Wahlberg and Dylan O ' Brien , portray this riveting story in a manner that allows the audience to fully experience this horrific event . On April 20 , 2010 , the world ' s largest oil spill took place when the Deepwater Horizon experienced many terrifying failures , causing the rig to blow up in flames and sink to the bottom . Eleven workers lost their lives , while others were severely injured . Families were left questioning if their loved ones survived . The actors and director did an outstanding job in “ Deepwater Horizon .” Director Peter Berg (“ Friday Night Lights ” and “ Lone Survivor ”) was able to portray the events realistically , allowing the audience to feel like they were there . He built a replica of the real oil drill . It was built in the water for the actors to shoot on , which required a lot of courage . The actors were able to do
their job in the water when all hell broke loose . Therefore , the actors had a better understanding of the tragedy and could easily portray the real event . Berg also did a terrific job of placing the audience in the middle of the chaos . Viewers were on the edge of their seats as if they were in the middle of burning fires and falling beams . Berg created loud sounds and flashing lights so you could experience the tragedy more fully . The main character , Mike Williams , was played by Wahlberg (“ Ted ”), who created a praiseworthy performance . Wahlberg was able to portray the character as if he was the real Mike Williams . Dylan O ' Brien (“ Teen Wolf ” and “ The Maze Runner ”) also played a major role . O ' Brien played the character Caleb Holloway , a floor hand on the rig ' s drill crew . Both actors portrayed real life heroes and fit their parts perfectly . Everyone had a job in making this storyline the real deal . My friends and I left the movie theatre shocked .
Some viewers left crying . We couldn ' t believe how all actors and directors had the courage to film on a replica in the middle of the ocean , knowing it ' s danger . Watching the movie felt like we were on the Deepwater Horizon as it went up in flames . Between all the special effects and the chaos , we were glued to our seats . Peter Berg got the explosions just right and the impact it had on the characters . The actors added the emotions and pain that the primary people experienced . This made the movie very entertaining . “ Deepwater Horizon " is a thrilling adventure worth buying a ticket to watch . It includes a solid mix of action and emotion from the actors , and the storyline will not bore you . You can ' t look away ; instead you experience the activity . “ Deepwater Horizon ” is definitely worth seeing .
