Action, thriller, tear-jerker? Deepwater Horizon left viewers appalled and in need of a tissue. Based on the true events surrounding the BP oil spill, this movie shows a detailed, in-depth look on the events leading up to the spill.

Director Peter Burg’s cinematography made the events so realistic the audience felt like they were watching the entire drill rig explode in person. As well crafted as it was, this dramatization of this U.S. disaster is definitely not for the faint of heart.

The movie graphically shows how each of the 11 crew members dies. Along with that, it features broken bones, crew members engulfed in flames and individuals removing shrapnel from themselves and others.

This cinematic masterpiece gives good insight as to what actually occurred on the Deepwater Horizon rig and features live footage from the real hearing that took part after the spill.

Ending with a tear-inducing memorial for the victims of the tragedy, home videos and pictures of the deceased victims are shown.

If you are looking for a great action packed movie with non-stop motion, this is definitely one to check out.
