Output

Critic

In the United States , the film receives generally positive reviews. On the American aggregator Rotten Tomatoes , Deepwater gets 83% favorable opinions, for 189 opinions compiled 18 . On Metacritic , he won an average of 68/100 for 52 critics 19 .

On the Allociné French site , the film obtains an average of 3.4 / 5 for 18 press titles listed 20 .

The opinion of Ouest-France is rather positive and describes the film as “not very fine, but really very impressive” . Caroline Vié of 20 minutes sees it as “a breathless entertainment just as a warning . ” In Le Figaro , Étienne Sorin writes “We thought the film disaster a genre used to the rope, especially good at producing catastrophic films. Peter Berg gives him a little soul; he knows the wheels and the limits. Above all, it respects a fundamental principle: to delay as far as possible the beginning of hostilities, to stretch like an arc the part that precedes the cataclysm ” . Jean Serroy du Dauphiné releasedthink it is a film that “has the merit of denouncing without detours the industrial policy of the responsible oil company” . In L’Obs , Nicolas Schaller writes “Mark Wahlberg plays the chief electrician and a good father, Kurt Russell wears a big mustache. They are the ordinary heroes of this drama of action, effectively led, to the glory of the proletarians who work and kill themselves literally to the task because of the incompetence of the bosses and the cynicism of their shareholders ” . Olivier Lamm de Libération sees Deepwater more than a disaster movie:”From the audio archive in the introduction to the long concluding scene that examines the birth of the trauma, Deepwater is ultimately less a disaster film than a plea for the working class, at the forefront of the ongoing capitalist disaster . ” Nicolas Didier de Télérama thinks for his part that “The film is the absolute counterpoint of blockbusters with superheroes. What interests the scenario writer is not the destruction at all-va, but its impacts on the Man: his social conscience inherited from the cinema of the years 1970 force the admiration ” 20 .

Stéphanie Belpêche of the JDD is less positive about the film: “Pyrotechnic effects and camera in permanent movement do not prevent the action to take a little time to start” 20 . The criticism published in Le Parisien is rather divided: “A pyrotechnic blockbuster? Not really. Since the famous explosion only occurs after three quarters of an hour of boring explanations on the functioning of a platform … Too late. Too bad, because the second part is panting . Thierry Chèze writes meanwhile in L’Express “The first forty minutes are endless. Occurs the disaster. And a pyrotechnic delirium that disintegrates any ambition of cinema in the name of the efficiency queen ” 20 .
