While this didn’t quite hit the level of Deepwater Horizon or Patriot’s Day for me, it was still a very solid effort with some great cast work and riveting suspense.

I really appreciate a quiet little thriller like this that can exist without action sequences or memorable set pieces and still be engaging.
