This is one of the best made-for-TV (or cable) movies ever made, ranking up with other made-for-TV gems such as "The Day After" or "The Jericho Mile". The person to credit for this movie is director Paul Seed. He uses the beauty of the Alaskan wilderness as the background to give the viewer a sense of the damage that the spill did to it, and his Kubrick-like use of the music score sets the mood for each individual scene.
Although the final scene with John Heard talking to the reporter is a bit too preachy and he uses this character to insert his commentaries into the script, on the whole the viewer is given a very good insight not so much into the logistics of the spill and clean-up but rather into the politics of the situation and the disruption that the spill caused to the residents and fishermen of Prince William Sound.
The bottom line is that this is a movie that is well worth the watch.
