Hollywood Gets it Wrong

Last week Hollywood premièred its movie version of the Deepwater Horizon incident and typical of movie versions of disasters altered the facts. BP criticized the film as inaccurate, and released a statement, "The Deepwater Horizon movie is Hollywood's take on a tragic and complex accident. It is not an accurate portrayal of the events that led to the accident, our people, or the character of our company." BP said the film "ignores the conclusions reached by every official investigation: that the accident was the result of multiple errors made by a number of companies." BP has paid over $55 billion in clean-up costs and fines.
