The entire movie is dark in spirit with X-Men all but died out and Wolverine and Professor X just waiting to die. The story is rather predictable with no major surprises, little depth and low on logic. A typical Hollywood drama. I know a lot of people seem to like it but I cannot understand why.
As expected this is a bit of a propaganda movie against BP but that was of course rather expected. It is still watchable. The dramatization is fairly well done and the effects are believable as well as enjoyable. If you watch it as a disaster drama and special effects movie it is definitely okay.
This is a movie that I have to say that I have a bit of difficulty in rating. Quite honestly I was sorely tempted to remove a star, or even two stars. Why? Because it is full of Hollywood nonsense, scientific errors, it is rather predictable and it did feel a bit like a Apollo 13 rip-off. Why did I not remove those stars? Well, it is rather entertaining even if, at times, I squirmed in my seat.
