Mark Wahlberg is an interesting actor/former rapper. The man is best known as being Ted’s sidekick in the movie about the epitomes bear. But when he puts his talent into action, it’s surprising that Wahlberg can actually act and do it well enough to earn an Academy Award nomination (The Departed.)
Now he appears again in disaster movie Deepwater Horizon.
The film is based on the true story of a man-made disaster that occurred in the titular oil rig, stranded the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010. Deepwater Horizon looks at the brave men and women whose act of heroism saved many on board and changed everyone’s lives.
Directed by Peter Berg, who also gave us Lone Survivor, we are pretty sure that he can help craft an evocative performance from Wahlberg. Plus, natural disaster true story romps are always great investments.
