A great big rock hits the earth, and lots of people die. That's pretty much all there is to it, and most of that was in the trailer. Can a major Hollywood movie really squeak by with such a slender excuse for a premise? Th...  more »

Movie Reviews

"Extremely Haunting"
Terry Richard | Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada | 05/25/2010
(5 out of 5 stars)

""Deep Impact" is made along the lines as the great seventies disaster films such as "Earthquake" and "The Towering Inferno", but with better and more advanced special effects. The story deals with the knowledge that a giant comet is going to crash into the earth and all man kind will be allihilated. With amazing photography and state-of-the-art special effects, "Deep Impact" brings new life to the disaster movie genre and takes the viewer on a terrifying ride with the question "could this actually happen?". The movie is filled with some of todays top Hollywood actors such as Morgan Freeeman, Vannessa Redgrave, Robert Duvall, Elijah Wood, and more. Gene Shalit says the film is "a thriller with brains". The film so far has grossed a jaw-dropping $350,000,000 at the worldwide boxoffice!"
Believable. Thanks Hollywood.

"Deep Impact and Armageddon release dates were close together, but differently revealing the possibility of impending doom. Although Armageddon was most entertaining and fun, Deep Impact was a slap of reality that dug deep into the personal lives of heroes and victims, not to mention a planet on the verge of total destruction. (We loved the diversity of both movies, so we bought them both.)

The graphics effects of both movies were outstanding, but those of Deep Impact, again, were made believable by the interjection of so many lives touched by an impending disaster.

The purpose of casting Morgan Freeman as President of the US escapes me, unless the producers wanted us to think that "this is just a movie, not reality." If that was their motive, they failed. Freeman made it even more real to us, as he appeared very Presidential. His familiar face made the movie an even more future possibility.

The Bible speaks of a future disaster like the one depicted in Deep Impact, created by a meteor named Wormwood. It speaks of one third of mankind dying in the wake of its power. After seeing this movie, and that image joined with my knowledge of Biblical prophesy will be forever etched in my mind, as we all wait for what I believe to be the inevitable."
