Very good depiction of events
19 May 2006 | by estefSee all my reviews

This made for TV movie/semi-documentary is a good depiction of what happened and what went wrong with the Exxon Valdez in Prince William Sound,Alaska. How the people of Alaska reacted to the spill which was the largest crude oil spill in the history of the United States. It shows how the captain was not on the bridge that night and in such a pristine Alaska sound he should have been until they reached open water. It also made a good argument for super tankers being required to have double hulls in the future and how a gigantic oil spill effects the wildlife and natural beauty of "The Last Frontier". A must see for people concerned with environmental issues.
