Excellent, and eye opener.
9 December 2011 | by viduraincSee all my reviews

Saw the movie last night and it was excellent. Provocative, well research, emotional and powerful. It is really shocking to see the level of deceit and corruption still going on in the gulf. We got to invest in alternative energies and let go of our destructive addiction to oil.

Even though I consider myself generally well informed, I was shocked to see pieces of information that have been kept secret to the public at large. And the film provides irrefutable proof. Sometimes the truth hurts. We got to face the truth otherwise the alternative will be even more disastrous.
