Deepwater Horizon Review


This reunion of actor Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg feels like a natural successor to their previous collaboration Lone Survivor, another true story adapted into a movie that wallows in both heroism and violence. This film recounts the events of April 2010, when a drilling rig off the coast of Louisiana exploded, creating the biggest oil-spill in US history. It's the story of the people who were working there, and while there's a clear attempt to honour the memory of the 11 men who died that night, the cast and crew also want to create an entertaining action-disaster movie.

Wahlberg plays Mike, the chief technician on the Deepwater Horizon, an oil platform more than a half-hour flight from land. As the film opens, he kisses his wife (Kate Hudson) and daughter goodbye and heads off for a three-week shift alongside boss Jimmy (Kurt Russell), drilling foreman Jason (Ethan Suplee) and pilot Andrea (Gina Rodriguez). When some discrepancies delay their work, Mike finds himself under pressure from the corporate boss (John Malkovich) to get on with the work and get back on schedule. Under order to ignore some questionable safety tests, they carry on drilling until the well erupts, triggering a massive ball of flame.

After the increasingly tense build-up, the movie becomes a more traditional disaster movie, as characters run for their lives or dive into the inferno to save someone. Some of this is cleverly conceived and played out, including several striking set-pieces. But the main focus here is on rah-rah courage. The most heroic roles go to Wahlberg, Russell, O'Brien (as a driller) and Kirkpatrick (as a crane operator). While Malkovich chomps deliciously and villainously on the scenery. But the most engaging role goes to Rodriguez as a woman who is genuinely terrified about what's happening but still manages to do her job. She's the only person on-screen who feels like a real person, and the irony isn't lost that she's also the only woman among this crew of macho tough guys.

Best idea ever.

Prom goers everywhere will be kicking themselves that they didn't think of asking their own favourite celebrity for a loan of their awards show dress for their prom, after Gina Rodriguez jumped at the chance of sharing her Golden Globes gown with an eager fan.

The news first arose in January when high school student Jessica Casanova tweeted the 'Jane the Virgin' star admiring her midnight blue Zac Posen dress that looked like something out of a Disney movie. Unfortunately, Rodriguez wasn't able to lend her that one as it wasn't one she owned, but she was willing to pass on her black strapless Badgley Mischka dress which she wore at her first Golden Globes ceremony in 2015 where she won Best Actress for a Comedy TV Show.

Gina Rodriguez In Forgiving Mood Over Golden Globes Mix-Up With America Ferrera

By Ed Biggs in Movies / TV / Theatre on 11 December 2015

Gina Rodriguez America Ferrera Golden Globe Awards

The official Twitter account of the Golden Globes confused America Ferrera with Gina Rodriguez on Thursday morning as the nominations were being announced.

Following the much-publicised mistake by the Golden Globes nominations in identifying America Ferrera as Gina Rodriguez, the latter has laughed it off saying “we always make mix-ups in life, man.”

Whoever was in charge of live-tweeting the nominations ceremony at the Golden Globes on Thursday morning (December 10th) made a spectacular gaffe, as two pictures featuring ‘Ugly Betty’ star America Ferrera, who was announcing the nominations, tagged the handle of Gina Rodriguez, who in turn was being nominated in recognition for her work on ‘Jane the Virgin’. Oops…

“The @goldenglobes noms are about to start! @HereIsGina @ChloeGMoretz @ImAngelaBassett #DennisQuad #GoldenGlobes,” the unfortunate caption read.
