Mark Wahlberg continues to make movies with stories that need, and should be told. Deepwater Horizon is the latest flick to do this.
Many people who go to see this star-studded western will have no idea this is a remake of a movie from about 50 years ago of the same name. Same basic premise, but not the same movie.
Clint Eastwood directed it, Tom Hanks stars in it, and the true story supplies the backdrop for this bio-pic of Captain Sullenberger. The pilot at the controls of the US Airways flight that went into the Hudson a few years ago.
This movie goes into wider release this weekend, and may be worth a look.
There is no question this has it's share of problems, but being suspenseful is not among them.
Some may say, why review this movie? But I say this movie could be a real turning point into the next big trend in movie making.
There was certainly enough negative on the internet leading up to this flicks release. But, sadly for the naysayers, it's not the horrible garbage they were anticipating.
