Watch Deepwater Horizon (2016) movie online free full putlocker. Deepwater Horizon (2016) The trailer for ! was just released—an upcoming movie about the 2010 oil rig explosion that killed eleven people and caused one of America’s worst environmental disasters. And if the finished film is anything like the trailer, I suspect it will be one giant (and perhaps unintentional) crisis management advertisement for the BP oil company.
Yes, the trailer looks apocalyptic in its explosions and will no doubt have plenty of worried-scientist-from-central-casting-who-knows-the-disaster-is-coming characters to root for. But as with practically all disaster movies, the primary danger is presented as a force of nature rather than humanity itself.
The trailer promises that we’re going to see something, “inspired by the true story... of real heroes...” which is no doubt true on a human level. But framing this as a huge disaster movie (available in IMAX, no less) has the potential to be a great big liberal pat on the back about the dangers of drilling wrapped in what people really want to see—huge explosions and Mark Wahlberg saving the day.
Honestly, I’m not sure how you make an entire movie out of disaster like this without boring people to tears with the bigger picture that can’t be told by using simple close-ups on worried crew members and scientists. Oil rig explosions: They’re just like earthquakes and volcanoes and alien invasions! We can try to prevent them, but as long as someone saves the day, it was all worth it.
