Deepwater Horizon Review

Good

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.

Kurt Russell Talks Being Chained To Jennifer Jason Leigh For 'The Hateful Eight'


Kurt Russell Jennifer Jason Leigh Quentin Tarantino

In The Hateful Eight, Kurt Russell plays bounty hunter John Ruth, who captures fugitive Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who’s wanted dead or alive for murder. But in order to make sure his captive doesn't escape John chains himself to Daisy, meaning on set the two actors couldn't get away from each other either.

To Russell, being chained to another person seemed easy when he read the script, until filming began. “That was rough,” Russell said of the experience. “That was different when I read it, I didn’t think anything of it. I though OK we’re chained together.”

The Hateful Eight Trailer


John Ruth earnt his nickname The Hangman for a good reason, he's one of the best bounty hunters of his generation and he's just caught himself a BIG prize, Daisy Domergue has a bounty of ten thousand dollars on her head and Ruth isn't going to share his reward with any other man he might meet on the road.

On their trip, the weather in Wyoming begins to turn and the bounty hunter and his trophy must leave the road and take shelter. They find themselves hauled up at Minnie's Haberdashery, a small stagecoah stopover. This trip just became all the more risky for Ruth as they're not the only dubious residents staying at the layover.

Knowning that the chatter will soon spread, each member of the boarding house are introduced to one another. There's the new sheriff Chris Mannix; Bob The Mexican who's looking after Minnie's Haberdashery whilst Minnie is busy; Oswaldo Mobray AKA The Little man; General Sanford Smithers, an aging confederate General; Joe Gage also known as The Cow-puncher and finally the mysterious Major Marquis Warren, an ex-soldier (for the Union) turned notable bounty hunter.

The Hateful Eight Trailer


John Ruth, known by his associates and like-minded peers as The Hangman on account of his fondness for hanging criminals, is a formidable bounty hunter on his way to Red Rock with a suspected murderer named Daisy Domergue. Along the way, they bump into another brutal bounty hunter named Major Marquis Warren who wastes no time in informing Daisy of her captor's uniquely vicious reputation, and they also pick up self-proclaimed new sheriff of Red Rock Chris Mannix. It's a bitter winter and soon a furious blizzard threatens to engulf them and their stagecoach. Thus, they decide to seek shelter at a small place on a mountain pass called Minnie's Haberdashery, which is currently playing host to caretaker Bob, Red Rock's own hangman Oswaldo Mobray, a ranch hand named Joe Gage and former Confederacy general Sandy Smithers. Unfortunately, the bounty hunters are not the only volatile ones at the haberdashery, and it seems some lethal mounting deception is threatening to bury them well before the storm.
