.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Action Drama Thriller - While rated PG-13, this fact-based disaster drama has frequent profanity and a lot of non-bloody but intense violence and action, so parents of young children should be cautioned. Fans of stars Mark Wahlberg and Gina Rodriguez should enjoy this showcase though other known stars such as Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, and especially Kate Hudson may be disappointed by their more limited screen time.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good By focusing on the humanity of the protagonists as well as their heroism, Deepwater Horizon gives us characters who are more like people than icons. That's a crucial element in what makes this particular disaster film work where so many others fail.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Deepwater Horizon” gets the explosions just right, but it's everything around them—the people, the aftermath, the tragedy—that it misses. That's the more challenging story—the one that places the fire and oil in a context that allows us to see its impact beyond the cost of human life.

USA Today Full Review
Good ...a fiery mix of white-knuckle tension, searing chaos and visceral drama. 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.

NY Post Full Review
Good ... a highly entertaining nautical version of "The Towering Inferno'' (still my favorite guilty pleasure of all time)... ...this year's ultimate guilty pleasure at the movies. ...the most convincing CGI I've seen in a recent movie, this is a truly harrowing experience — and I mean that in a good way.
