Deep Impact (7-May-1998)

Director: Mimi Leder

Writers: Bruce Joel Rubin; Michael Tolkin

Music by: James Horner

Producers: Richard D. Zanuck; David Brown

Keywords: Sci-Fi, Disaster, Meteor, POTUS, Explosions, Tsunami

The impact of an enormous comet will extinguish life on Earth unless quick countermeasures can be taken. Science fiction drama being character-driven rather than a frame upon which to hang expensive special effects. Substantially better than the Summer 1998's other meteor/comet disaster feature, Armageddon (1998).

Review by c little (posted on 19-Aug-2007)

The movie was awesome. I thought Morgan Freeman was most fitting for the part as the President. He was down to earth but authoritive at the same time. He is one of my favourite actors. The special effects were great too. I liked best when the tsumami hit New York. The one gigantic wave hitting the skyscrapers was creepy. My son had to laugh at the part where the statue of Liberty's head was torn off and then landed at the bottom of the water with a thump. Of course when he laughed, I did too. Then the old man sitting on a bench there reading the newspaper and how he got blown away by the wave. That was pretty funny too. I saw the movie in the theatre when it first came out and also I own it on DVD. I've seen it many times. There were funny parts to it and also some very moving parts as well. I thought it was a well thought out movie and full of emotions. I mean, what would you do if a huge comet was going to strike earth?
