The Deepwater Horizon Gets Blowed Up

There was a recurring sketch on the late, great, still-underrated comedy show SCTV in which two farmers in overalls, Big Jim McBob and Billy Sol Hurok, reviewed obscure foreign films and highbrow fare with one common feature: They showed people and things exploding. "I'll tell you one film I really did like," says Billy Sol, "Rainer Werner Fassbinder's The Third Generation. .  .  . People got blowed up good in that one, blowed up real good!"

Well, it's not a '70s German art house picture like The Third Generation, but if Big Jim and Billy Sol were still in the reviewing business, they would surely view the new Mark Wahlberg film Deepwater Horizon as Citizen Kane, The Godfather, and Children of Paradise all rolled into one. Things blow up good in this...
