Deep­wa­ter Hori­zon

The Sun (Malaysia) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

been com­pleted, and that they are now rush­ing ahead de­spite con­cerns from Jimmy about the safety of the pipeline.

BP ex­ec­u­tive Don­ald Vidrine (Malkovich) then or­ders some fur­ther tests, and this is what ul­ti­mately led to the disas­ter.

The sub­se­quent blast and rag­ing fires see or­di­nary peo­ple rise to the oc­ca­sion, but also re­veal the worst in peo­ple as they try to pass re­spon­si­bil­ity for the disas­ter to oth­ers.

Es­sen­tially, it is about what hap­pens when cor­po­rate greed goes against good sense.

There is even a piv­otal scene in the film where we see Jimmy be­ing awarded for high stan­dards in safety by the same com­pany that chose to dis­re­gard it due to penny pinch­ing.

The spe­cial effects were well used and the ac­tors play their parts well.

Over­all, this is a movie worth watch­ing.
