At about 1:20 in the film, there is a shot of an oil rig, and in the background you can see mountains in the distance. There are no mountains visible from any rigs in the Gulf of Mexico near the Louisiana coast. See more »
Moulay Ismail, that Moroccan ruler, fathered 900 children with his concubines. 900 children. Genghis Khan, well, he made old Ismail look barren. One out of every 200 men on this planet has a direct line stretching back to that son of a bitch.

the problem with this picture in my opinion is Nicolas Cage !
don't get me wrong , I don't mean his performance but the audience has a problem with him , it's like : oh this movie starring Cage , just give it 1 star !
this movie is about characters and I always liked this kind of movies , the movie takes place in 2010 , first scenes shows the aftermath of BP oil spill accident... Cage is an idealistic congress man from Louisiana called Colin Price who aspires to be nominated for the senate , he was defending the rights of fishers whose works were damaged because of the accident , and suddenly his reputation was ruined by sexual scandal with a fisherman's wife ! His wife left him , he resigned from the congress but continued his charity works to support the fishermen... Cage was not bad , he delivers a good performance for his role..
Peter Fonda as Colin Price's father , he was very good written character and his performance was very good...
Connie Nielsen as Deborah Price was not special and not bad in the same time..
Sarah Paulson as Kate Haber , I liked her role in the second half of the movie
the problem with this picture is that when you have these elements and these characters you could have done much better scenario..
sorry for my bad English..
